Ready Strip Pro - 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 Ready Strip Pro to our test board in a temperature controlled environment. The product had a very spreadable consistency with little to no odor. After 24 hours visible lifting could be observed. Our sample board was sprayed with Ready Strip Wash paint remover cleanup about one hour ahead of paint removal to reactivate the product.

Recommendations for Ready Strip Pro:
Lifting with the Dura-Soft tool was generally easy barring the tackiness of the underneath layers. We did not try to scrape off extra coatings but could have easily done so. Eight layers were removed pretty easily and we were quite happy with those results. Ready Strip Pro is a step up from the Ready Strip Plus product and readily worth the extra $6 charge. Its semi-firm consistency should still do well on most vertical surfaces.



 
Application and Removal
 
 

Apply Ready Strip Pro paint remover professional strength liberally to the surface with a brush, medium sized nap paint roller, or putty knife so that the remover completely "masks" or covers the color of the surface to be stripped. Do not attempt to brush out too thin like a coat of paint. It covers approximately 50 sq. ft. per gallon. Apply at temperatures between 60° F and 80° F. When the remover turns off-white it may form an eggshell like skin to lock in the stripping action. Misting the area to be removed with After-Strip paint remover wash prior to actual removal will soften the skin and make lifting of the paint or varnish easier. After the remover has turned off-white use a stiff putty knife to lift paint from flat surfaces or a stiff bristle brush for detailed areas. After initial lifting, use a nylon bristle brush or stripping pad to scrub surface. The time the remover takes to turn off-white may vary depending upon the type and amount of paint, the surface and temperature.  Typical color change usually occurs within 4 - 24 hours. Paint or varnish removal may take place prior to the Color Change, although the Color Change will indicate the end of stripping action. Apply Ready Strip Wash paint remover clean-up for final clean up of residue. Surface should be completely dry before repainting. No need to neutralize (acid wash) surface. Clean tools promptly after use with soap and water.

Removal Time
Safety
 

The softened paint/varnish may remain moist under the eggshell skin for several days for easy removal. However, on exterior surfaces, due to the potential for higher temperatures and direct sunlight, the paint should be removed shortly after "Color Change' to prevent the remover from drying out.

Rubber gloves and safety glasses are recommended. Avoid eye contact. If eye contact occurs immediately flush with plenty of water for 15 minutes. Avoid prolonged and repeated contact with skin. If skin contact occurs, wash with soap and water. Maintain adequate ventilation especially in confined areas. If spraying is expected use NIOSH approved chemical cartridge (organic vapor) respirators. If swallowed do not induce vomiting. Give 1 or 2 glasses of water and call a physician immediately.
