1. Stir to uniform consistency.
2. Apply a thick coat of Coating Remover to the area being stripped.
Do this using a paintbrush or a wallpaper paste brush on larger areas. Then, if desired, cover Coating Remover with plastic film. This is especially helpful if you are removing multiple layers of built-up coatings or sealers because it reduces Evaporation and allows the material to absorb deeper and more completely.
3. Let Coating Remover do the work in softening the finish.
Because coatings cannot be removed until fully softened, this is the most critical step when using the product. Give the material enough time to absorb and apply additional material as necessary. Depending on the type of coating being removed, the temperature and The number of layers present, Coating Remover may only take several minutes, or up to several hours, to finish working.
4. Test the finish.
This determines whether coatings are satisfactorily softened for removal. Periodically scratch or scrape a small portion of the treated area to see how easily the finish comes up.
5. Apply additional material if necessary.
If Coating Remover completely absorbs into, yet doesn’t completely soften, all built-up layers of coatings, apply a second coat of material and give it time to work. Repeat this procedure until all built-up layers are soft enough for easy removal.
6. Remove softened finish:
Once the finish is completely softened, scrape it off with a putty knife indoors and a pressure washer outdoors. If using pressure on wood, take care to prevent damaging the fibers.
7. Clean up any residue and remaining finish
This is done on wood by lightly sanding and on other surfaces by agitating and soapy water.
Coverage may vary widely depending on the floor finish, number of layers, and the surface. A case of four 1-gallon cans will usually strip 800 to 1,000 sq. ft. of concrete.
Patch Test: Because it is difficult to determine the type and amount of coatings present on a surface, perform a small test first. It will determine Coating Remover’s effectiveness, coverage and the approximate amount of time required for it to work.
