Solvistrip paint stripper is a solvent-based paint and coating remover that is effective at removing water-based paints and coatings such as:

  • Stubborn masonry paints
  • Emulsion paints
  • Epoxy finishes
  • Bitumastic coatings
  • Varnish

Solvistrip paint stripper can be used on most substrates such as wood, metal, brick, tiles, render etc. It is often used to remove non-breathable masonry paint from render (including lime render) and masonry, allowing the building to ‘breathe’ again and prevent build up of damp. Solvistrip is also ideal at removing varnish from wood which it can do quickly and with minimum saturation to the substrate. In addition it is highly effective at removing emulsion paint, epoxy’s and bitumastic coatings.

Solvistrip’s gel-like formula works by softening the paint or coating to a water soluble residue. It can then be washed down by hand or hot-water pressure washer – returning the substrate to its original state.

Usage: Apply Solvistrip generously using a natural bristle brush or spreader, leave for between 1 and 24 hours depending on the thickness of the paint (it is important to give Solvistrip time to work, although there will be an immediate reaction it generally requires several hours to fully reach its potential), wash off, ideally using a hot water pressure washer. Where that is not possible, use hot water and a natural bristle scrubbing brush.

Coverage: Approximately 1 litre of Solvistrip per square metre, per application.

Not suitable for use on plastics including UPVC.

Solvistrip is also available in 25L containers – ideal for large projects. However this size is only available for collection or delivery via pallet. Please contact us for a quote.

    Needed to remove paint from concrete coping stones by my front steps prior to repainting. Solvistrip worked but used my own method. Used plenty. Covered with polythene to prevent drying out. Left for 2 hours. Removed excess with a scraper (it is very gooey) then removed the remainder by pouring boiling water directly on it followed by washing up liquid directly on top. Then scrubbed very hard. Not easy but it worked for me. Hot soapy water was simply not strong enough. Any residue I removed with a Brillo Pad. Hey presto – all paint gone. Would have given it 5 stars but for the hard work so I reduced by 1 star. Would use again as it really does work – with effort.

      We’re glad you got the results you were hoping for and thank you for your kind review. For future reference, if the Solvistrip had been left longer – 4-6 hours – the washing down process would have been easier as the Solvistrip would have had the time to better lift the paint from the concrete. There is an immediate reaction when you first apply it so it’s easy to think it’s reached its peak of effectiveness after a couple of hours, however leaving it for several hours increases its effectiveness and reduces the effort required for washing down.

    Used this product to remove layers of paint from victorian window sills. Needed to remove with a scraper after first application and then reapply, but worked

      We’re glad you got the results you were after. For future reference, when stripping multiple layers of paint traditionally found on cills Kling Strip would most likely be a better choice as it’s designed to remove many layers in one application.

    Brilliant stuff! I spilt ‘tile’ paint over a path and all the way up to front door as hadn’t noticed ain’t container was split. I left on for an hour and the paint came off with the aid of a sponge, hot water and scrubbing brush. Saved a fortune in getting someone in clean the path 😊

    The product worked well and would use again .I’d advise also purchasing the 4-f for oil base as it would remove anything solvistrip won’t touch. It’s a messy business and will take time so bear this in mind before you start

    Brilliant stuff! We have a patio that the previous owners of our house had painted. It looks dreadful so we wanted to get rid of the paint.
    The team at Strippers Paint Removers suggested a couple of options, and sent me a trial of them both.

    We eventually ordered Solvistrip, and my goodness it does the job. Important to test how long you need to leave it on for, we ended up leaving it on for a good few hours for a good result. Wiped it up then jet washed and I’d say 98% of the paint came off straight away (and it was thick paint!).

    I have given 5 stars due to customer service but have only just tested a few pieces of floorboard which have been either varnished or had hard wax oil etc on them. However I have been able to get quite a bit of the finish off with warm water and wire wool which in the long run I hope will save hours of sanding. Will come back and give a proper review at some point.

    Used the product to remove paint from a brick shed. Worked really good. Just need to apply as much as possible. Also it gets really messy when you take it down with a power washer, so make sure to have some plastic sheets to cover surroundings.
