Does this product have methylene chloride in it?

Removing finish from a Remington 700 rifle stock.
Asked by: wagggsss
Yes. It's the main ingredient. I looked at the MSDS from the company's own site: Dichloromethane {Methylene chloride; R-30; Freon 30} Concentration: 60.0 -100.0 %

Can I use this on concrete to remove multiple layers of paint? Or is there another product you recommend?

Asked by: Jen
Nope. This product Didn't work for me at all on my painted cement basement floor. I have no idea how old the paint on my basement floor is... maybe 30 years plus? It was under a carpet that was put there in the eighties that I just removed. I got really really bad results with this. Just turned everything into a chemical slime. Citristrip, however, totally got the paint off, without the scary fumes and burning sensation when it touches your skin.

1 gal. KS-3 Premium Stripper is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish it worked. Followed the directions to the proverbial "T". I kept waiting for it to bubble and it never did. So I tried power washing where I applied it, and no dice. I have a deck that has 2 coats of paint on it (different colors), this product didn't get either of them off. It was pretty expensive for it not to work and I have a ruined roller to boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great Stripping Polyurethane from Wood Floor stripping teak floor; uneven surface--cannot sand flat. Used product, brushed on 3' by 3' section; the consistency of the stripper is like apple sauce; you have to apply it thick..wait only a couple of minutes then use wire brush to remove. It gets caked up like pancake batter as you scrub off (stripper with poly together) in the bristles of the brush. Bang out against the inside of a bucket and scrub once more over that same area. Repeat the process. I've tried 3 other brands and did not have near the same results as this stripper for the project I was doing. Usually I don't take the time to leave reviews--.good luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Fantastic This stripper works great as long as you let it do the work. My parents gave me an old trunk that my grandfather used when he was a boy, and a massive Army storage chest that was also his. The trunk had been painted many times, and the storage chest was OD green from WW2. The best way to use this product is to put it on semi thick and let it sit at least half an hour, then instead of taking it off, I used a small nylon brush to work the stripper into the wood and metal. One shot was all it took. I removed the bulk of the remaining stripper with a putty knife, and the used Klean Strip After Wash to removed the rest. After than it was ready for paint and stain,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great but glob it on! Great paint stipper. It states to paint it on with a paint brush. Use and old paint brush you no longer care for. The paint you are removing often get stuck to the paint brush if used on multiple coats. I have used it on a door with 7 coats of paint and a varnish layer. If you glob it on with the brush, it seems to strip more paint deeper through the layers. It removes about 2 layers at a time after littling the application do its magic for 15-30 minutes. One gallon is a lot as I still have a little left. Word of caution- get thick and long chemical gloves as you do not want to get this on your skin. And wear the glasses as recommended as the paint chips can fly with the chemicals on them if you are scraping hard.

I removed some 1975 linoleum and it left about 1/8" thick glue behind. If you apply this stuff and wait ABOUT 10 MINUTES (don't let it dry or it will work against you), rather than the 15 minutes in the instructions it worked great. We had spent days using an iron and heat gun then trying to scrape off the heated glue with a paint scraper and razor blade scraper. We did in one hour what took a couple days with a heat gun. Just clean off with a wash rag and a little soapy water - done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional I've found this product to exceed ones expectations. If you follow the instructions closely then you'll find that most items will already be scraped by the time you get an average sized item coated. It says ready to scrape in 15 minutes and with a few exceptions (Polyurethanes, epoxies) 7-10 minutes is usually more than adequate time, ideally the longer the better and heavier coatings (polyurethane & epoxies again) will take a few coatings. You definitely need to allow drying time between coating though as its more effective on the dried paints more so than moist layers of material. I've yet to find a task this would not work on for me. Hope your as satisfied as I was! ~ GREAT Product ~ ~ SUPER Time-saver ~ ~ EXCEPTIONAL Results ~

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jasco vs. Klean Strip In response to an earlier review on this site: Both products are manufactured by the same company W. M. Barr in Memphis, TN. They both have identical ingredients according to the MSDS. There is no way packaging the same product in a different color container could make one better than the other. Get the cheaper one.
