Product: AecoChem AcryliStrip
Description: AcryliStrip is a solvent-based sealer, stain, and paint stripper that has a wide range of applications. AcryliStrip is especially effective when removing curing compounds from flatwork concrete. It is just as effective on elastomerics, urethanes and acrylics. AcryliStrip will remove layers of acrylics, acrylic latexes, polyurethane, and other resin coatings. Alkyd enamels can be stripped using a two-step process. First apply Stripsol. While still wet apply Stripper Cream. AcryliStrip has little to no damage on most substrates. This includes wood, glass, metals, aluminum trim, and masonry surfaces.
- Does not burn skin
- Plants may be damaged by direct contact
- Do not use on asphalt shingles and vinyl siding
AcryliStrip is best applied through a low-pressure application system when outdoors, but it can be brushed, wiped, or rolled on to the surface. Depending on the paint or coating, more than one application may be needed. Apply the stripper from the top down using a side-to-side motion. A small hand pump garden sprayer works well for small jobs. Allow AcryliStrip to dwell for at least five minutes before doing a scratch test. Scratch at the paint or coating with a sharp object to see if the substrate is visible. If the substrate is visible where tested then it is ready to be rinsed. If the substrate is not visible or if the coating is gummy but not released, re-apply and let dwell for an additional ten minutes before re-testing. Be careful not to leave foliage covered for too long in direct sunlight, as it may cause damage. A pressure washer, garden hose, or water and scrub brush can be used for rinsing. When using a pressure washer, keep the nozzle six inches from the surface if rinsing wood.
Do not allow product to dry on the surface. Always rinse-off thoroughly while wet.
Certain enamels may be best stripped with LCS, which is a caustic, d-limonene water based product. Alkyd enamel can be removed by first applying Stripsol. Allow to dwell for several minutes. While AcryliStrip is still wet, apply Stripper Cream directly over the Stripsol. After adequate soak time and a scratch test, remove the paint by scraping or high-pressure rinse.
Coverage rates will vary from 125-250 sq. ft. per gallon depending on the surface porosity, texture and severity of staining.
