flushing residue

When i do strip the old paint from my garage floor I will have to flush old paint and stripper down my asphault driveway. Might this cause a problem to the asphalt? Is there something I can use to neutralize the residue?
Asked by: brassboy
No need. For the most part the media will be neutralized by the amount of water you use to flush the garage. Although this is a really great question! The strippers of today do not employ the same type of destructive chemicals from years ago. I recently stripped all of the paint from my garage and let the paint scrapings settle outside the door and then simply brushed them into a pile and used a sod shovel to put them into the trash can. My understanding of strippers mechanics are that they use a combination of ureic acid, salts and some other combination to break down the bonding agent in the paint, not harmful to the bonding agent in asphalt.

Will this product remove latex paint from a driveway.

We think the paint is latex as it is actually wearing off in several places from heavy rains. A leak in a gutter washed the paint off the section under the leak
Asked by: Buzz
Yes, but it is very slow.. It takes at least 3 hrs for any result. More if it is more than 1 coat.

1 gal. Concrete and Masonry Paint Stripper is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Might work if your paint's already peeling I used this to try and strip an existing layer of concrete paint off an outdoor patio. The paint had started to chip in places and was starting to look terrible and I also didn't like the color, so I thought "Why not strip it and replace it with something brighter?" This was LITERALLY the worst decision I've ever made in my entire life and this project consumed 2+ months of my life that I'll never get back. I started by power washing the patio which removed a few chips and then followed the instructions for this product EXACTLY. This bubbled in a few places, but generally did absolutely nothing. I scrubbed with a wire brush and sander, re-applied NADA. I purchased 6+ bottles of this and got almost nowhere. Basically, it removed just enough paint to make the patio look worse and leave me in a weird limbo. Apparently, the previous owner applied the concrete paint in the appropriate way (with etcher) which made this useless. I ended up using Soygel with significantly more success. But if you're planning on undertaking a project similar to my own, may I suggest hiring someone to do it? Save yourself the frustration!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as you think I ended up needing to by 2 gallons of this to take off 4 layers of paint on my outside steps so I could re do them (4 steps with a small landing - not more than 100 feet) You're not supposed to let the product dry however in the nicer temperature days that's literally impossible. It says on the container that it will strip the paint using just the hose - WRONG. Put this on the steps on a Saturday morning and by afternoon figured enough time had passed to clean it up however it wasn't. I could see the bubbling like it said though. I ended up using a pressure washer the next day without the product and I think is what worked better. Make sure if you use it you COVER everything, it's very toxic to grass, plants, flowers. We had to tarp everything off just to protect it and make sure you wear gloves.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Behr-ly works I've done everything everyone said in other reviews (ie plastic covering to keep moist, waiting 4+ hours, etc) and I used this product on concrete with little success. I will say that it does work, but ONLY IN SMALL AREAS. If you are doing a large room get ready to buy 8 gallons and spend a month tackling the paint. After scraping the paint off, the primer underneath was much harder to get off and I was on my hands and knees will a wire brush, sponge, and mop bucket. For some reason a reapplication of the stripper does not want to "wither" the primer underneath the top coat of paint, so I've been scrubbing and sanding it. Like I said, this product is decent at best, but if you have a large room (mine was about 250-300 square feet), you are in for one heck of a messy, labor-intensive headache.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PLEASE DONT! This is the WORST product I've ever used in my ENTIRE life! I was hesitant at first reading all the reviews thinking most didn't read. Well, I read. EVERYTHING! They guarantee the product and you can call about any problems/questions or a refund. Customer support had some friendly guys. George claims he's actually used the product with success. However I would only recommend this product for very small areas such as less than 70 sq ft. I've used 3 gallons of this junk and it's more labor intensive than anything else. This product is so bad it couldn't even remove white spots from priming and ceiling paint applied 2 weeks ago! I'm left with patches and bare pockets with after the elbow grease I've put in. PLEASE, I beg you to take heed from my horrible experience and avoid this. Save your money and important time as I can't get any of it back. Consider an alternative such as sanding or dry ice blasting. As the saying goes, once you paint concrete/brick, that's it. There's no going back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work at all. This product didn't work at all for us. We put it on thick and kept the paint wet with this product for most of the day. In the end, the only paint that came off was because of heavy scraping. This product ruined our weekend. I imagine this wouldn't even take peanut butter off of a kid's face.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Garage floor -- sealer and paint stripper The Concrete Paint Stripper applies like a raw egg -- can be spread thin with lots of goop to drag. The best application method may be with a trowel because a brush just pushes the goo. It didnt work where I applied the product thinly, even though I kept working it to keep it wet. It did work where I put large 1/8 thick puddles. I was trying to mostly 'etch' some sealer in the floor where water seemed to still repel after deeply cleaning and using degreaser. Bottom line: If you are doing a large area, better off mechanically abrading and repainting (for paint) or using muriatic acid for etching. The product smells very strong - sometimes an indication of a powerful product - but not in this case. It may be useful for smaller projects. Application and cleanup is too difficult for a large area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some additional tips This product worked great to remove paint from a concrete floor. Here are some additional tips to make it work better: 1. After applying the stripper to a floor, cover it with a thin plastic drop cloth. This will keep the solution moist for a longer time. 2. Wait 4 hours before attempting to remove the paint. If you do #1 above, there should be no problem with it drying out in 4 hours. 3. When removing the softened paint, first use a scraper to remove as much as possible. Next, dip a wire brush into soapy water and scrub with that until all patches of paint are loose. Finally, use a sponge with clean water to wash the surface. If you do these things, you should be able to remove 1 or 2 layers of paint in one application.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works when using it properly! Let's set the record straight. It works but you will need a lot of it! I found out that if you apply it fairly thick and use a plastic cover to cover it up and keep it from evaporating quickly then it works so much better! I did a 440 that was about 50% covered in paint, the other half had peeled up over the years hence The need to do this. Put it on with a roller, cover it, and in 5-6 hours it will come off fairly easy with a pressure washer. Pric and you will go through it but use my tips and it works! Before pic below. All gone now.
