Polyvine Ltd believe this is the safest varnish and paint remover in the world!
This unique emulsion gel is a water- based, non-toxic, varnish and paint remover. It removes all oil and water-based paints (including old lead), emulsions, lacquers, varnishes and polyurethanes. This varnish and paint remover uses innovative technology that removes all hazardous solvent content and replaces it with water, making this a safe and environmentally responsible product.
The ultra low solvent and ultra low VOC content, means that this is a safe and effective method of removing years of varnish and paint build up. Safe to use on any type of surface - no efflorescence on any type of substrate (porous or non-porous):
Wood (hard & soft)
Brass and other soft metals
How to Use:
Large areas can be coated up without drying out.
Apply liberally with a brush. Remove after the required time with a scraper, or ideally use a stainless-steel scouring ball. (Do not use wire wool as this will create red rust which will stain the surface).
Apply further coats if required to completely remove the coating.
Covering with a plastic film will assist in keeping the product adhered to the surface.
Cleaning of intricate carvings and/or moulding’s is improved by wrapping in plastic sheeting (cling film or foil) and leaving overnight.
No special after treatment required. Simply wash down with a wet cloth or, if using on external surfaces, use either a pressure hose or a plastic brush and bucket of water.
Suitable for removing toxic and lead-based paint, but wear protective gloves.
It is the product, not the operative, which does the stripping.
Recommended stripping times are as follows:
Multi-Layered paint: 1 hour to overnight
Wood Stains, Varnishes, Lacquers and Shellac: 15 - 30 minutes
Polyurethanes & Acrylics: 30 - 45 minutes
The above times are approximations and subject to substrate.
