Using this stripper to remove three paint jobs from 1980s Porsche 911. It starts rippling the first coat off in minutes, then a second and third application waiting about 15 minutes between lifted the second and third paint jobs. Scrape off with squeegee and wipe with rags. Left to sit with thick enough gel, it also removed the bondo patches in thicker areas. This product works very well and I will make it my go to stripper now.
Recently found our go-to product (which we hadnt ordered in some time) discontinued in CA due to methylene chloride prohibition. Had to quickly find a replacement and took a chance on this product and was pleasantly surpised. Stripping process began immediately and within 15 min, paint was loose and easily removed. A great solution to our stripping needs. Good stuff! Thank you Aircraft Spruce.
Did the job, happy with results
I am in the process of stripping the paint from my 1946 Cessna 140. The paint has been on the aircraft since 1956, which is the year the wings were metalized. In about 1977 the paint was starting to look bad in several places, so the owners applied some well-placed striping to cover up the bad sections of paint. Needless to say, I have double layer paint in several places, plus the standard grassy-green primer coat under all of the paint. Sure Strip really does a great job! Iâ€™m generally well impressed by it. It is slightly gelled just the right consistency to hold onto vertical surfaces, and the under sides of wings. I used about on gallon per wing halfâ€¦ meaning the top half of the wing used about a gallon, and also the bottom half. 68-72F is the perfect stripping temp. The hotter it gets the faster it dries, and this slightly shortens your working time. Most paint bubbles up in 30 seconds. You will need several applications in built up areas, and a medium stiff nylon brush will really help remove paint from around rivets and out of seams. The stripper it water based, and the residue will wash off easily with a rage and sponge. I canâ€™t say I love stripling paint, but Sure Strip makes an unpleasant job tolerable, and pretty easy. Itâ€™s a good product. Cortland
I was hoping to remove clear-coat from a 1974 Airstream with this, but it wonâ€™t touch it. However, itâ€™s useful for old caulk around windows.
It has not been tested on composite parts, so we can only recommend to use with caution.
Yes, this product is safe to be used on aluminum wheels.
Per supplier: When you prep the metal scuffing and then applying acid etching primer or with alodine you compromise any plating on the metal whether it be cadmium, anodizing or alclad. Manufacturers apply the plating so that the metal does not rust or corrode before paint. Which is why if you are stripping any metal surface you want to paint or at a minimum prime the substrate immediately.
The answer is yes. The caveat is to not allow the stripper to soak into the wood. Once the paint or varnish is lifted, clean thoroughly. When finished, let the wood dry completely, sand and wipe down with a wet rag. Let dry and sand again. You don't want to leave stripper residue on the wood. If there is some he/she runs the risk of it reactivating and affecting the adhesion of the new coating.
I cannot be used on fabric but it will removed poly fiber paints on metal, wood, or concrete.
