Peelaway 1 easily removes up to 32 coats of paints & varnishes containing oil, lead, Polyurethane or water.
It is suitable for wood, brick, stone, concrete, marble, decorative plaster, cornices, plaster walls and can even remove painted wallpaper with its water-based Alkaline formulation.
Peelaway 1 is a water based alkaline paste formulated to safely remove multi-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. 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. 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 stripping 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.

Peelaway 1 will work more slowly under 5oc and will stop working under 0oc and will not remove certain two pack epoxy coatings, baked enamels or cement based paints.
CAUTION: There is a strong risk Peelaway 1 will darken hardwoods i.e. oak, hemlock and other hardwood substrates. The pre-use TEST PATCH referred to in this label is essential to determine the effect Peelaway has on the surface being stripped as well as its effectiveness in removing any paint/coating. Not suitable for veneers, plywood, most non-ferrous metals or composition surfaces such as gesso or papier mache or for the removal of cellulose two-part epoxy or cement based paints. Also not suitable where there is a strong risk of permanently darkening or discolouring hardwood substrates. Our alternative system Peelaway 7 is recommended where varnishes, cellulose lacquers or modern coatings, including water based paints have been used.
