Preparation

Wear protective clothing, eye protection and gloves. Protect all surfaces not to be stripped from spillage or splashes with a waterproof covering such as polythene sheeting. Store in a cool place and take care when removing the cap as contents can pressurise. Ensure there are no sources of ignition in the proposed application environment. Work outside whenever possible or open all doors and windows to provide good draft and ventilation. Do not use in enclosed spaces.

Application

Read Preparation and Health and Safety Instructions prior to using. We recommend testing on an inconspicuous area first. Apply a generous coat by brush taking care not to overspread. After a few minutes the paint will normally blister and lift. Many paints can then be removed by use of a scraper or wire wool. Thicker build-ups of heavy duty coatings may require extra applications every 30 minutes or until the paint is easily removed back to the original surface. Do not allow the remover to dry out between applications. Remove softened paint with a scraper, use a shave hook, wire wool or an old toothbrush in difficult areas. After removal, re-coating can begin immediately with oil based paints providing the old coating and all residue of stripper has been completely removed, leaving a clean bare surface which is dry and sanded smooth. If re-coating with water-based paints, wash the stripped surface thoroughly with white spirit and leave to dry. Keep this product away from plastic, glassfibre, Perspex® lino, te iles and other vulnerable surfaces.

Clean Up

Remove as much product as possible, collecting waste into newspaper and allow to dry off in a safe place, outside. Do not empty into drains or water-courses. Some local authorities have special facilities for the disposal of waste coatings.

Questions

Question: 

Any idea how much blackfriars paint and varnish remover it would take to strip 1 side of a 42ft wooden lodge? Also, does the remover not damage the Woodstock all? Thanks.

Answer: 

You haven't given a height of the lodge so we cannot calculate a total square metre area but assuming an average height of 2.5m you would have 32m² of surface area. This would require (assuming removal only takes one application) 8 litres of Blackfriar Professional Paint & Varnish Remover. We recommend testing on an inconspicuous area first, however Blackfriar Professional Paint & Varnish Remover is designed not to discolour or raise wood grain.
