Strypit Paint and Varnish Stripper is a powerful paint remover for all paints, enamels, cellulose, stoved enamels, emulsion paints, synthetic finishes, polyurethanes, french polishes and varnishes.
Penetration takes from 1 to 15 minutes, depending on type of finish and thickness of coating to be removed.
Strypit does not contain caustic or acid and is non-flammable.
May be rinsed off with water or white spirit. As water raises the grain of wood, rinse off wood after use with white spirit and off metal with water.
If the wood is being bleached with Rustins Wood Bleach after stripping, then rinse with water as the bleach contains water.
