Answer: 
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 %

1 gal. KS-3 Premium Stripper is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 42.
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 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.

The people that left it on for 3 hours didd't follow instructions. It really does work in less than 15 minutes! Apply liberally and scrape it off before it dries. Really...like magic!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1 GAL. KS-3 PREMIUM STRIPPER I needed a product to remove a very thick layer of polyurethane from my wood floor. Purchased a gallon of this product in sprayable form, and one in the jell form. Followed manufacturer's directions. It was a total failure. Needed 5 attempts to get to the wood. I purchased a thin set spreading tool for 4 bucks.. The type that looks like a saw blade on two edges. Also, that spreads a very thin layer. Poured a large glob of the stripper on the floor. Spread it as thick as the teeth of the tool allowed. Waited 10 - 15 minutes. What a difference! Just two attempts and all the poly was gone. The scraping was a snap this time. It was a bear before. On second application, if the stripper is still paste like, it can be applied to a new area. The moral of the story? Don't send a boy to do a man's job. Use a lot. Save the elbow grease. Not the money.

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.

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 5 out of 5 by from Works great stripping 12 year old paint of a deck I purchased the Klean Strip Premium Stripper after running out of the Klean Strip Super Stripper to remove 12 years of paint from a wood deck. If you follow the instructions, you will be truly rewarded. You do have to Glob it on to get the results you want and wait 15-30 mins to see the bubbling take place. Take your metal putty knife and it comes off like magic. Some areas on the deck required 2-3 more applications. This product is fantastic. Make sure you wear gloves and safety goggles because it does burn skin. If you do get some on your skin have some water close by. Overall this is a great product. Now it is onto the Sanding, Staining and Sealing.

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.
