Peelaway 1 is a water based alkaline paste formulated to safely remove multiple layers of most architectural and domestic paints as well as many industrial coatings containing oil, lead, polyurethane or water from wood, brick, stone, steel, iron, concrete, marble, decorative plaster cornices and plaster walls. It will also remove painted wallpaper.
Peelaway 1 can be used on virtually all interior and exterior surfaces, vertical plus overhead and is excellent for intricate, carved and moulded surfaces. As such, it is a popular choice when carrying out restoration of period buildings. The paste is applied by spatula, brush, trowel or sprayed* over the surface to be stripped and covered with the Peelaway poultice blanket for the required time (dwell time).
When the process is complete the blanket, paste and paint are removed with the blanket retaining the stripped paint which may contain toxic particles from the old paint and preventing them becoming airborne. *When spraying dilute up to 1 part water to 5 parts Peelaway 1. We recommend an airless sprayer suitable for heavy materials with a medium to coarse tip size.
Always carry out a test patch first. It is possible that this product will work more slowly in temperatures under 5 degrees C and will stop working if the temperature drops below 0 degrees.
Application: 1mm-6mm thickness dependant on age and thickness of the coating to be removed (this will be determined by the test patch). Coverage is approximately 1m² per kilo at 1mm thick for Peelaway 7, for Peelaway 1 the coverage is reduced by 20%. Dry time 2-48 hours depending on paint/coating type and number of layers.
Note: Must be neutralised before repainting with the neutraliser supplied in the pack.
