Kling-Strip is a paste, which when applied thickly to the surface, will gradually dissolve the paint to a water-soluble residue. Its poultice action draws out paint and stain from the pores of the surface or the grain of the wood, which are then left completely free of paint by washing down. There should be no scraping necessary. It is a particularly effective way to remove paint from ornate work and beams.
Stripper 4-F is an alkali-based paint remover that is ideal for removing thick layers of oil-based paints from brickwork. It may also be suitable for some varieties of spray-applied textured paint which has not reacted to Solivistrip.
