Stripping paint may seem like a tedious task but is an essential step to ensure a fantastic final finish. Stripping paint from woodwork and metal is recommended as overcoating an old layer of paint could lead to several problems. To avoid peeling, bubbling, or chipping, check out some great products and top tips to help you achieve the perfect base for a fresh coat of paint.
Pro Grade Paint Stripper
A double strength water-based gel paint stripper for multi-layer paint removal. This is ideal for home projects and is the environmentally friendly choice. It can remove several layers of paints, varnishes, lacquers, powder coatings, stains and artex finishes.
Green Paint Stripper Aerosol
A highly effective paint dissolving/lifting material without methylene chloride. It will remove all types of oil and alkyd-based paints, emulsion paints, varnish and most two-component materials.
Strypit Paint & Varnish Remover
A powerful, non-caustic paint remover which will remove multiple coats of paint, varnish and cellulose from wood, glass, metal and plaster.
Once you have finished stripping the paint, you will need to thoroughly clean the surface and allow to dry fully before applying a fresh coat of paint.
If you have stripped paint from wood, we recommend sanding before painting as the paint stripper may have raised the grain.
