Reviews

Other products I tried failed. It removed the paint after leaving overnight covered in plastic, then pressure washing in the morning. Sanding off primer required.

Worked very well at removing old paint off 1963 Cessna, the primer was a different story, nothing would take off the primer. I was very happy with this paint remover.

Ive used many aircraft paint strippers and this is by far the best. For best results, Ive found that once applied, cover with plastic and leave it on overnight. It also doesnt eat through nitrile gloves like other strippers do. It has a mild almost pleasant smell to it. This stripper has cut the time it takes to strip parts at least in half for me.

I agree with James B on removing primer, I am stripping a 1960 172A. I tried covering with plastic and without with not much difference. I do see that if timed just right the primer is softer and can be scraped off but if left on past the point where paint bubbles it flashes and allows the primer to begin setting up. Overall good though. LWN

Tried using it on some old paint (70s), barely softened it, hopefully itll work better on new paint, will advise.

Unfortunately, even when used in a temperature controlled oven with the recommended procedures, EKOSTRIP had no effect on the lacquer used on brass musical instruments (trumpets, trombones, tubas)
