Kling Strip

(7 customer reviews)

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. It is a particularly effective way to remove paint from ornate work and beams and is a safe way to remove lead based paint.

Developed in 1974, Kling Strip is the original peel-off paint remover. It will safely and effectively remove:

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 and is a safe way to remove lead based paint.

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.

The formula to calculate the quantity required: 1 litre per square metre for each mm thickness. i.e. If tests show that an area of 1sq.m. needs Kling Strip applied at a thickness of 5mm: 5 x 1 = 5 Litres per sq.m.

Please note: Due to the high content of resin in pitch pine there may be darkening of the wood. Always do a test patch.

    I ordered Kling Strip feeling a bit dubious that it would remove all the paint from an iron fire place based on my experience using a Nitromors type product. I was delighted at the result though! Kling Strip removed a number of layers of paint, including what we guessed was lead based paint. The majority of the product brought off the paint in one gelatinous length. It was a little messy to remove the remaining product, and you will need to use a nail brush or something less abrasive to get all the product off. However, if you are looking for something to remove all traces of paint, this product will do the trick. NB Protect walls and floor coverings around the area to be stripped.

    I used Klingstrip for removing paint from a large painted pine wardrobe and achieved excellent results with 99% of paint removed in one application, the remaining 1% was due to stripper not applied in required depth in localised areas. Would definitely recommend this product

    This is a revelation! I am still in shock with how well it worked and will use nothing else in future. I used it to strip textured paint from Victorian cornicing and lead based paint from Victorian doors. I’ve stripped all manner of surfaces before and have never experienced the ease and joy Kling Strip gave me. WOW!!! Customer service is excellent too! I will be recommending this to everyone I know.

      Thank you for your kind review, we are delighted that you are so pleased with Kling Strip and got the results you were after.

    Amazing stuff. One and a half tubs have stripped 2 4-metre beams of layers of black stuff that Nitromors didn’t touch. I found with the second beam that putting on cling film as I went along, rather than once I’d spread the gloop on the whole thing, worked better. Getting it all off isn’t easy but I think a light sanding will remove the remnants. Will use it again.

      Thank you for your feedback. Yes, it’s definitely a good idea to cover the Kling Strip as soon as you apply to avoid it drying out, as that will inhibit its effectiveness and also make it harder to remove. Washing off using a stiff bristle scrubbing brush and a sponge should negate the need to sand.

    My project is to fully redecorate the whole house, but initially focusing on stripping all the architrave, skirting and bannister first. Having used both a heat gun and almost 5 litres of Nitromoors, I decided to have a look as to what other paint removers are out there and decided on this. My only misgiving is not having bought it sooner!

    It’s taken me 13.5 years to embark on this project and I’m intent of taking it all back to bare wood before painting and Kling-strip would’ve saved me a ridiculous amount of hours (I’m too embarrassed to say exactly how many). So now I’m going back over what’s already been done via previous methods as this is taking it back to the wood.

    I’m just starting to play around with the amount of time to leave on….I’ve definitely left it on too long in some areas and having to redo. Trial and error is all it takes, along with patience to figure it out.

    Yes, it is messy. Yes, I’ve developed some ‘sores’ on 2 fingers as the gloves I also bought to use were filling up with water, so I gave up using them in preference to bare hands. However today I tried washing up gloves which seem to be better (for me) but the paste sticks to them more. But hey, if I can keep the momentum going, then that’s ok with me.

    The only real difficulty I’ve had is on the end spindles and pretty inaccessible places as I can not get a scrubbing brush to them. The same for the bannister base where it meets the carpet. Unless I develop a tactic, then hopefully when I start sanding will sort those little bits. But all that’s down to whoever designed this house and not the product.

    It’s a thumbs up and a big thank you from me!!

      Thank you for your feedback. We’re so glad you are getting on so well with your project with our product Kling Strip. It’s often trial and error with regards to finding user techniques that work for the individual project. If you have any spindles still to do we can advise cutting strips of polythene and spreading the Kling Strip directly onto them and then wrapping around the spindles like a bandage. Good luck with the rest of your project!

    Very pleased with results. In the past I’ve always burned paint off with a hot air gun… horrid fumes, and residue left on wood requiring lots of sanding, both of which could be dangerous as I’m sure there will always have been lead in the very old houses I’ve worked on. Used the Kling Strip for the first time on a Georgian door with many layers of paint. A 5l tub has stripped both sides with a little left over. I did a small test patch by leaving it on to work its magic overnight, which didn’t quite remove all of the base layers, so continued with rest of door leaving it on for 3 days – which took the lot off – no sanding required!
