• Widely used for Buildings • Boats • Railings • Graffiti

• Wood stains • Decking etc.


• Doors & Panelling • Staircases • Walls • Ceilings

• Floors • Artex® • Graffiti

Temperature affects the speed of strip – the warmer the better. (Less effective under 10oC – ideal working temperature 25oC)

Varnish: 20 – 60 minutes

Paint: 20 – 60 minutes

Two pack varnish: 40 – 90 minutes

Heavy multi layered paint: 90 minutes – overnight

Two pack lacquer: 60 minutes – 4 hours

Always test a small area before use. Multiple layers may need a second coat .

Always read Health and Safety Data before use.

If leaving overnight cover with plastic to help the stripping process. (Not essential but useful for tough thick coatings)

  1. Cover top with a cloth during opening to avoid splashes.
  2. Apply a generous, even coat – do not brush out. Layer Thermostrip onto surface to be stripped with a suitable clean brush.
  3. Leave for approx 2 hours and apply a second generous coat. On less than 5 layers of paint or varnish a second coat may not be necessary.
  4. After product has penetrated the substrate (up to 24 hours) scrape off with suitable scrapers, leaving surface as clean as possible,
  5. Remove residues with cold water and a stainless steel scourer (NEVER WIRE WOOL) and leave to dry.
  6. For surfaces requiring a perfect finish, rinse with ‘Thermowash’ to remove all residues.

In certain circumstances it may be easier to remove first coating of Thermostrip Pro with scrapers and reapply if surface coating is delaminating.

It may be possible to enhance the performance of Thermostrip by leaving the product for longer periods or in some circumstances overnight on extremely difficult coatings, ensuring the product is well coated and covered with plastic to avoid drying out.

Ensure surfaces to be stripped are dry. Always protect adjacent floors and delicate surfaces.

  • Always apply a thick generous coat.
  • Do not spread the product too far. (this may result in poor penetration)
  • Always let Thermostrip do the work for you. The longer you leave it the more it will strip.
  • Never let the product dry out.
