Does this product can damage glass?

Answers

you may use painter tape to seal the glass before you brush this paint remover on the paint. For urethane removal, there may need additional bush on the paint remover before you strip the paint off. For safety, please keep your work area with air free flow.

will this work on powdercoating?

Asked by mark February 27, 2021

Answer

Hi Mark, Lets see, powder coating is typically applied electrostatically and then cured under heat or with ultraviolet light and is very hard to remove. So I dont think it will work and dont know what will remove it. You could call Klean-Strip and ask if they have anything to do that, call 1-800-398-3892

DONT DO IT. These labels specifically warn about bathtubs. The label warns about a need for ventilation. A bathroom has none ! I suspect that the configuration of a bathtub and your head will lead to inhaling a dangerous amount of toxic fumes. TOXIC FUMES. DONT DO IT

Use it or lose it!!!
I got 4 cans of this on April 3, 2019 and didn't use as much as I expected, so I put the remainder in my basement. I just went down to my basement on an unrelated matter, and found that my one open can and the 2 remaining UNOPENED cans had leaked everywhere causing a huge mess. My basement is relatively dry and has good air circulation, and nothing else that is kept down there has ever shown any sign of moisture related problems (rust, mold, mildew, etc.) In my opinion, this should never have happened in the course of only 2 years. My suggestion to the company would be to start using plastic instead of metal, especially considering how caustic the substance is. I originally gave this product high marks, but after this, I had no choice but to change it!

Easy to apply, using on n coated porcelain tub, used 2 storage coats. Instructions said 45 minutes, but you need to let it sit and work fir at least 2 hours on each coat. Make sure the room is well ventilated also, but in the end, it did the job very well. Pulled multiple coats off my bathtub

Better than expected
Yes this tin is small and I purchased it to see if it would work before getting the larger one. To my surprise I didn’t need the big one as it will cover a large area even with thick, multiple coats. I really needed something to take 70 years worth of layers of paint from an outdoor metal trap door. In the 15 minutes it did start to take off some paint but for the areas with multiple layers I left it at least 45mins or more and it worked. Some really tough spots needed a second coat and it was great. Very happy with the results.

This product did a good job for the intended purpose. It needs to be applied liberally to remove multiple layers of paint. I used this to remove old porch paint and the top layers removed quickly with the stripper. I found that the applying liberal amounts of the stripper penetrated multiple layers. After 45 minutes you could scrap the enamel paint, but since the porch had over 16 layers of paint on it, I had to scrap and apply three times to get down to the last 5 or 6 layers of paint. The older paint seemed unaffected by this stripper and I had to strip the porch with a drum sander. This was an effective product for stripping. Apply liberally for multiple coats. If you have the time, let it sit longer than 45 minutes, seems to be more effective if it does sit for a couple of hours. Did not seem to be near as effective on older paint (60+ years).

I made a new dinette table form my class A motor-home. The table is made of poplar wood and resembles an old railroad tie (see the spike holes in the wood and weathering on the ends). I was applying Varathane Triple Coast water based polyurethane to wood finish and encountered two nasty puddles. The wood sat curing for 48 hours but the puddles did not sand well. I used this stripper to remove the entire existing coat. Read and followed the instructions on the stripper and applied as directed. It softened the poly to a point it was removed with ease using a steel scraper - plastic scrapper was much more difficult. I have not used this product for any other applications, but it worked well for this one.

I never have seen a product this bad that does nothing as it says it will do. I brushed the slimy stripper on the brick where I had dropped some latex paint last year.Nothing happened after one hour; the paint did not come off. I brushed another coat after an hour and left it there overnight. I tried to scrape off the paint next day and nothing happened except that the brick was discolored.

This paint remover works and is among the best dried paint removers currently sold in the market. Be sure and have adequate ventilation but more importantly use thick rubber gloves and be prepared to toss the gloves away after your project as you don’t really want this stuff around kids and pets. Be sure and also cover areas which you might drop or spill any of this product as it is quite caustic. The stuff works however be prepared to also have lots and lots of scrapers and 3M scotchbrite pads which work amazingly well with this stripper. Pictures show my door threshold after one fairly thick application allowing it to sit and perform it’s magic. Depending home many coats of dried paint you wish to remove will determine how many re-applications are required for a realistic outcome. Set aside a undisturbed afternoon for this and you will not be disappointed.

I had some mixed results using this stripper, I tried removing factory paint from a 50 year old tool box in order to restore it. It took multiple applications to get down to the steel, which I was surprised about. I scuffed the paint with 80 grit sandpaper to open up the paint to the stripper and applied a liberal coating to a small area. I let it sit about 20 minutes and I removed most of the paint. i had to repeat the application and was able to finish the area. This was an old craftsman tool box and the paint is not what you would consider tough like an urethane or epoxy, so that was the basis for my 4 star rating. I did not try this on varnish or poly, but it was satisfactory for the job i was doing. overall it worked pretty good and it did strip the paint. i would personally try a stronger stripper next time
