Customer Questions & Answers

Can this be used to clean up oxidation on aluminum rims?

Asked by: MegaGump
I don't think so since oxidation is not paint. You are better off trying sandpaper or emery cloth.

about how many square feet does this quart cover?

there are only patches of two layers of paint on my cement porch and I was wondering how many square feet would this quart cover.
Asked by: Addie07
Hard to say... It depends on how many layers of paint are underneath. I removed a brown layer very nicely which revealed a white layer underneath the brown so I had to do it twice. If done properly my guess is that a quart will do about 20 sq. ft., or at least one side of a door.

Does this work on fiberglass?

Asked by: Misters
As these products usually say, try a small amount on an inconspicuous area and see what happens. But my feeling is that it would remove paint from fiberglass without damaging it.

1 qt. KS-3 Premium Stripper is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Star Review Rating provided by a verified purchaser

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS PERFECTLY I can say that the 1 star review for this product is ridiculous...I am a professional refinisher and have used this product for years its the only one in my shop. It has always removed every finish I have applied it too...maybe the previous reviewer was not applying it correctly example: stripper should not be applied like paint, brush one direction do not go back over what you just applied you will close up the air pockets stripper needs oxygen to start the chemical process of lifting off the finish. This product is the best and I have used most on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best one Ive used I was needing this for my stairs. I bought the best kind Lowes had and it didnt even touch the paint. I did some research online and looked at reviews and thought Id give this a try, and work instantly! There was 2 layers of paint and a stain on the stairs, took the paint of all the way through. The stain is coming off with each coat, Im needing to use a scraper to get the tough spots off though(and in the grooves). I didnt bother "painting" it on there I just poored it on there and spread it around with a paint brush, dont be stingy with it! I would definantly recomend this to anyone. I dont know what happen to the cans the other reviewer had, maybe they made a bad batch but this product worked great for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible I have used other paint strippers in the past and was never impressed with the results. Even though it says you can scrape this off in 15 minutes, I didn't think it would be that easy. I needed to take the finish off of a coffee table that was worn. I applied the product, waited 15 minutes and started scraping. I could not believe my eyes. 95% of the finish came off with one pass of the scraper. It came off in a wrinkled up sheet, the consistency of silicone rubber. I applied a little more to touch up some stubborn areas, those scraped off after a 3-4 minute soak. Finally, I wiped the whole surface down with mineral spirits and I'm ready for sanding and refinish. I'm very skeptical when trying out new products. This product is one that actually holds up to the claims on the label.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from powerful, fast, cheap Works great as long as you follow the directions and time it properly. It's more like a clear gel than a paste - will drip of you put too much on the brush. Apply thickly in one direction. Set a timer. Remove with a plastic scraping tool a few within the 15 minute window. Don't let it sit much longer than 15 mins. Work in small sections at a time. It effectively removed 5-10 layers of paint from my 90-year-old wood trim around windows/doors - a mixture of latex, oil and lead paint. Some areas needed 2-3 applications. Some areas came off entirely on the first coat. The paint bubbled up within 2 minutes! I also used a metal scraping tool for stubborn areas. Also be sure to wear protective gloves, eyewear & mask - errant paint chunks that land on your skins/eyes will burn! Put down a drop cloth and have a container to put all the paint globs. Seems impossible to not make a mess. Tape off walls/surrounding areas that have paint/surfaces that would be damaged by the stripper gel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Follow the directions Having read some of the reviews, it seems that other users are not following the directions or trying to use the product to remove things it was not designed to do. It worked fine to remove 2 coats of very old paint from a door frame. The only things I would add are that: a) You have to check on the progress every now and then after you apply it. If the paint starts to wrinkle then go ahead and scrape. If not, leave it on a little longer. If left on too long it will dry out and the paint will go to a semi-hard state. If you scrape and it hasn't had time to work, you just wasted the stripper. So it is a balance between not enough and too much time. b) Use a real paint scraper that allows you to apply downward pressure while pulling towards you. Using a putty knife is a waste of time. Going to a real paint scraper cut my time and effort in half. Also, make sure you use gloves and cover any exposed skin - this stuff can burn. And use a metal container to apply it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Perfect! I had some residual poly on a table top that I needed to remove. The left over finish was an oil/urethane mix and this removed it flawlessly. I am now able to finish sand and start building up my new finish. This product does exactly what it claims to do, and I couldn't be happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff I accidentally bought a variation of this product and was so disappointed. Make sure you buy the "Premium Stripper" and not the "Strip-X" by this brand. This product did an excellent job removing 4-5 layers of paint from an old interior door we purchased to restore. I have used other brands and feel that this product is noticeable superior.
