|Product Description & Use:
SMART STRIP is a revolutionary paint remover that is safe for the user,
the substrate and the environment. This 100% biodegradable, water-based
remover is extremely effective for removing multiple layers of
architectural and industrial coatings from virtually all
interior/exterior surfaces – wood, brick, metal, concrete, stone,
plaster, fiberglass, etc. This product does not contain methylene
chloride or caustic and VOC is zero. SMART STRIP is exceptional for safe
removal of lead based paint and is excellent for intricate, carved or
molded surfaces. Because it is a paste, SMART STRIP is easily applied by
brush, roller or conventional airless spray. It is formulated to remain
wet and effective over extended periods of time and does not require the
use of Peel Away Paper. Peel Away Paper may be purchased separately when

each type surface/coating to be removed before general use to
determine compatibility, yield, proper thickness and dwell time
Remove any loose or peeling paint prior to application. Mask/protect
areas where stripping is not desired. Polyethylene (plastic sheets) and
masking tape create an effective barrier. Be sure to protect flooring.
Plants and other foliage should be covered or rinsed thoroughly before
and during application. NOTE: SMART STRIP will not affect glass,
aluminum or plastic surfaces.
Application & Spread Rate:
Using a brush, roller or airless spray, apply approximately 1/6in to
1/8in thick (refer to test patch results) according number of layers,
and type of coating being removed. Airless spray is the most cost
effective way to apply the product. Start at the lowest pressure setting
and slowly build pressure until an adequate fan pattern has been
achieved. When trying to build film thickness of the remover, two
separate applications are recommended. Apply a light first coat and
allow it to tack for about 30 minutes. Then apply a second coat to build
the film to the desired thickness. SMART STRIP provides an average
spread rate of 45 - 50 sq. ft. per gallon.
The time required for softening/lifting paint will vary according to the
number of layers, type of coating being removed and surface temperature.
Average dwell time rangers from 3 to 24 hours. (Refer to test patch
results). NOTE: SMART STRIP is formulated to remain wet and effective
over extended periods of time and does not require the use of Peel Away
Paper. (The use of Peel Away Paper will accelerate the removal process
and extend the dwell time.)
Removal & Clean Up:
Remove softened/lifted paint using a scraper, taping knife or power
washer. Agitate surface residue with a stiff nylon brush or scouring
pad, paying particular attention to crevices, grooves and cracks.
Exterior stripped surfaces should be rinsed thoroughly with a power
washer. Interior surfaces can be rinsed using a sponge and water or
denatured alcohol. Collect paste and paint residue in plastic bags and
dispose of in compliance with local government regulations. Clean up
airless sprayer by running water or denatured alcohol through the
equipment soon after application has been completed. Allow surface to
dry thoroughly before repainting.
For best results, surface temperatures should be 50ºF – 95ºF. Product
can be applied as low as 32ºF, however, efficiency/effectiveness is
reduced and dwell time increased.
Health & Safety:
While SMART STRIP is formulated to be safe for the user, surface
and environment, proper safety procedures should be followed at
all times. Wear gloves, goggles and other protective clothing as
needed. Refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for
important health/safety information before handling.
