1. Use our degreaser to remove all surface contamination

3. Apply Eco Paint Stripper with a brush at approximately 1mm thick (equates to 1 litre per square metre)

4. Cover with Clingfilm - essential to keep the product moist at all times

Eco Paint Stripper tips

1. Keep everything warm - the Paint Stripper itself and the painted surfaces - up to 25C

2. Use dry heat, not bottled gas, for space heating

3. Always cover using Clingfilm - the product will not work if dried out

4. Do not brush out thinly, apply a generous coat

5. Scrape off when raised and detached with a sharp metal scraper

6. Wipe thoroughly with cold water to remove all residues

6. Finish using a stainless steel scourer


  • If working outdoors, try to do this job in the Summer months or on a sunny day out of the wind.

  • In cold weather you must keep the product and the surfaces above 10 degrees C. Below 10 degrees the stripping action will slow and lifting of the coating will be delayed.

  • In Winter adjust the Stripper temperature by placing the pots in warm water.

  • Always carry out a trial on a test area before stripping a precious surface or object.


  1. Paint does not come off cleanly - stripper has dried out, not enough applied. Reapply and cover with Clingfilm.

  2. Only the surface coat comes off - too little applied, or the coating was not left for long enough. Reapply and cover with Clingfilm, leave for 12 hours.

  3. No apparent effect at all - too cold, no Clingfilm, not left long enough. Reapply and cover with Clingfilm, leave for 24 hours.
