Paint strippers are used to remove paint from surfaces. The following options are available:

  • Liquid or gel paint stripper
  • Aerosol, or spray-on, paint stripper

All types of paint strippers can be applied to the surface and allowed to soak in for several minutes before removal. The removal process is typically performed by scraping, brushing or wiping the surface with a cloth soaked in the solvent.

How to Use Paint Strippers

Paint stripper is a powerful chemical that can strip paint, varnish and other finishes from wood, masonry and metal surfaces. It’s corrosive to your skin, so you should always wear protective clothing and safety equipment when using it. Always read all instructions.

Always use paint stripper in a well-ventilated area. The fumes from this chemical are harmful to humans and animals if inhaled directly or for long periods of time. When working with paint strippers indoors, make sure there is enough fresh air circulating to keep any vapors at safe levels by opening windows or doors regularly during use (but never breathe the vapors directly).

Before you begin stripping an object with paint stripper, make sure it’s dry first—otherwise you may damage the object further by pulling off layers of old paint along with new ones when applying chemicals!

Types of Paint Strippers

Paint strippers are generally divided into one of three categories:

  • Paint removers. These are typically strong acids or alkalis, and they dissolve or chemically neutralize the top layer of paint—but not so much that they damage the underlying surface.
  • Degreasers. These cleaners will remove grease, oil, dirt and other impurities from surfaces in order to make them more receptive to adhesives or paints. For example, you might use a degreaser on your car before applying wax by hand buffing it off with a soft cloth towel.
  • Solvents are designed to soften paint over time so that it can be scraped off easily with tools like putty knives.

Safety Tips

  • Wear safety goggles and a face mask.
  • Wear gloves, long sleeves, and long pants.
  • Do not use in a well-ventilated area or in any confined space that is poorly ventilated.
