A. Assuming that you are convinced your stripper is superior, your next attempt should include increasing the aggression, stripper-solution concentration, water temperature and dwell time. Did you allow the stripping solution to dwell for 10 to 15 minutes before you began the stripping process? This is a critical step and many people fail to allow adequate dwell time.
- You can increase the aggression by using a build-up removal pad.
- Use the stripper as strong as the label allows.
- Apply a heavier coat of stripper for maximum dwell time. Don’t let it dry!
Most importantly, be prepared to repeat the strip operation up to three times. I trust you priced the job high enough to cover the aggravation, wasted finish, and extra strip operation.
