Trade Strip Paint and Varnish Remover
We proudly present water-based Trade Strip Paint and Varnish Remover
Ideal for trade and industrial use
Researched, developed and manufactured in the UK. Trade Strip paint and varnish remover is a revolutionary unique patented water-based paint stripper using “science not solvents” that is safer to its user and the environment than conventional hazardous solvents.
Trade Strip paint and varnish remover is ideal for use by the trade and industrial users. Economical to use – Goes further than hazardous solvent based strippers – Minimal VOC content (0.000004%, as certified by independent laboratory detection test.
Most DCM-free paint strippers have just replaced one hazardous solvent with another, but this patented technology removes the hazardous solvent content and replaces it with water.
Safer alternative to Methylene Chloride*, caustic poultices. as well as N-Methyl Pyrrolidone (NMP), Benzyl Alcohol, Ethanol or Dimethyl Sulphoxide. Ideal for use in sensitive and occupied premises such as homes, hospitals and schools.
*EU Parliament agrees to ban paint stripper containing dichloromethane (14 January 2009).

Trade Strip Paint and Varnish Remover allows the removal of up to 5 coats in one application. Clings 100% to vertical surfaces. No discolouration of timber, washes off with just water. Safely remove multiple layers of anti fouling and marine paints from Glass Fibre and GRP without affecting the gel coat. TradeStrip does not dry out after short periods of time, allowing large areas to be stripped successfully, unlike some solvent strippers which quickly evaporate.
Varnish, Shellacs, French Polish – 15-30 minutes
Under normal circumstances only one application required.
Lacquers, Polyurethane’s – 30-45 minutes
2-3 applications may be required.
Anti Fouling Coatings, etc. from GRP – 30-45 minutes
2-3 applications may be required.
Multi-layered paint – 1 hour then scrape off.
For more than 5-6 coats of paint (such as a door)
Apply liberally and leave for 1 hour and scrape off. Apply second coat and leave overnight.
To prevent drying out in hot conditions, or when left overnight we recommend that the treated area is covered with a plastic film.
Coverage: Approx. 4-6 square meters per litre / per application.
Instructions for use: Apply liberally on surface. Remove after required time with scraper, or ideally use stainless steel, or brass wire wool (see links on right hand side of page). Do not use steel wool as this will cause rust marks to penetrate into wooden surfaces. If required, apply a further liberal coat and repeat until bare surface is visible. Wash off any residue with a damp cloth or water. Use sandpaper to remove any small traces of finish, once the the surface has completely dried out.
