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 %

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by More work than it's worth! I had three options in stripping a small 11' x 12' hardwood floor - sanding, scrapping, or chemical stripping. I went with what, I was thinking, was going to be a moderately expensive, albeit quickest and easiest method - chemical stripping, thus the Klean Strip. The polyurethane varnish was removing easily enough with a scrapper, so I thought stripping should work quite well. I could not have been more wrong! I needed to apply multiple coats of Klean Strip to get the floor clear enough to go in and finish up with a hand sander (which I was hoping to avoid in the first place). It ended up that one gallon (at $30 a gallon) was not enough and I needed to buy an additional gallon to finish the mess I started. In addition to the cost of gloves, and mineral spirits to remove the Klean Strip residue, I invested more time and money to what should have been a relatively simple project. July 21, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by McLean-strip Strongest stripper I bought a gallon. The whole gallon didn't strip a mare 40 sq feet wall. I was totally disappointed. July 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works in seconds This stuff really works ! Be generous when applying it ! We used a brush. Scraps up well and no sanding necessary ! PLEASE !! Wear protective clothing , gloves and eye wear! This stuff is unforgiving if you get it on your skin , IT BURNS.. And you will emmediately know it.. Don't get it on anything other than what your stripping .. Works great , would use it again .. June 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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, December 14, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of money! It does not work. Planning to return to HD. Waste of time and money! May 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by What a waste of time and money. Purchased this stripper to remove the paint off my patio. I was better off just using my pressure washer by itself. Will never purchase again. February 6, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worthless... and takes alot of work to figure that out. I wasted a couple of hours trying this product. It does make a mess and sorta helps take almost one layer of paint off. But, It has caused me more work in my opinion. It just does not do what it says it is supposed to. It is a waste of money. December 12, 2014
