Developed in 1974, Kling-Strip is the original poultice paint remover. It will safely and effectively remove:
  • thick layers of oil-based paints
  • old varnishes
  • distempers
  • stains
  • lead-based paints

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 beams and ornate work.

Usage: Simply paste on, cover with polythene, leave to work, remove excess, wash down.

Coverage: 3 to 6 litres per square metre, depending on the thickness of paint, profile of surface etc. N.B. To calculate the quantity required: each mm of thickness of Kling Strip + 1 litre per sq.m. e.g. If tests show that Kling Strip needs to be applied 5mm thick, 5 x 1 litre = 5 litres per sq.m
