Test Patch

Since it is often hard to know the type or the amount of paint on a surface, two small test areas should be stripped to determine the proper application and dwell time needed for paint removal to occur.  (read instructions)

 

 
Application
 
 

Multi-Strip heavy duty paint remover is applied to the surface at a total of approximately 1/32" thick (30 mils) with a brush, roller, putty knife or sprayer. Can be sprayed effectively using an airless sprayer. Drill mix before spraying - Remove filters from sprayer & spray gun - Submerge pump directly into remover.  Do not use suction hose - Use NEW 1/4" or 3/8" airless hose. Use at least a 1 GPM piston sprayer, .019-.021 reversible spray tip. A wet mil gauge should be used to measure thickness.  Multi Strip heavy duty paint remover will easily cling to vertical surfaces. Use your tool to fill detailed, intricate or grooved surfaces. For best results apply Multi-Strip heavy duty paint remover at temperatures between 60° F and 80° F. Product activity is reduced below a temperature of 60° F and may require additional dwell time before all layers of paint are removed. If product freezes let thaw and stir vigorously until product is consistent. Coverage for Multi-Strip heavy duty paint remover varies between 50 and 75+ sq. ft. per gal. depending upon the type and amount of paint on a surface. No Neutralization required.  Clean tools promptly after use with soap and water.

 


Multi-Strip - Performance Information

Sample boards with remover applied

Our test boards had 15 painted  layers.

What's on the boards?

2 layers latex primer (white)
2 layers oil base Rust Oleum (pink)
2 layers latex (blue)
2 layers latex (yellow)
1 layer latex Krylon (purple)
2 layers oil base Rust Oleum (pink)
2 layers latex (dark blue)
2 layers latex (white)

Observations during use:
We applied Multi-Strip to our test board in a temperature controlled environment.  The product had a very spreadable consistency with little to no odor.

Recommendations for Multi-Strip:
At 24 hours we used the ProGrip2 putty knife to easily remove 13 of the 15 painted layers.  This product performed equally the same as Strip Tox except that it is not designed for lead based paint and its consistency is much looser whereas Strip Tox is more paste-like.  If you are not stripping lead based paint and do not have many vertical surfaces to strip then Multi-Strip would be a better buy at $25.00 savings per gallon.

Additional Notes
 

Use a Back To Nature Stainless Steel Scraper with 5 function detail blade to lift the paint off the surface. Use a stiff bristle brush with Ready Strip Wash paint remover clean-up to remove any residue.

In some cases, it may look like the last layer of paint is still on the surface. This is not a dried layer, but paint which has been emulsified so it can be removed.

 
Masonry, Concrete Surfaces
Metal Surfaces
 

Remove bulk of remover/paint with a stiff putty knife or wire brush. Use a wire brush with Ready Strip Wash paint remover clean-up to remove any residue remaining. Residue can also be removed with a high pressure washer where permitted.

Agitate or rough up remover/paint on the surface with a wire brush without attempting removal. This helps to lift bottom layers from the surface. Use a 4in or wider razor blade scraper (wallpaper remover) or stiff putty knife (pipe railings or irregular surfaces should use the putty knife) to lift remover/paint off the surface. Use a wire brush with Ready Strip Wash paint remover clean-up to remove any residue.
