Q)  What types of paint strippers do you have?

A) In general, we have two classes of paint strippers,
            1) EF (Environment friendly) based
            2) MC (Methylene Chloride) based

Q)  What are the differences between these paint strippers?

A)  1) Generally, MC (Methylene Chloride) based paint strippers work faster and more effective than EF (Environment friendly) paint strippers.
     2) MC based paint strippers are being regulated in some districts and municipalities. Meaning that you will not be allowed to use large quantities of that in a given period of time. This could usually be a concern if you are using about 55 Gallon drum or more per month.
     3) EF paint strippers are biodegradable and water soluble.

Q)  How could your paint stripper be applied?

A) From a different perspective, all our paint strippers could be divided into two categories:
         1) Immersion (or dip tank) type.
         2) Brush type which could even be applied using a spray gun.
Immersion (Dip) paint strippers) are always stronger than their brush (spray) type counterparts.
Basically, if the size of the objects you are dealing with is small enough, it is always better to order Immersion (Dip) type of paint strippers. But, if you are dealing with bigger objects such as; building, aircrafts, marine, …, then you will find brush (spray) type more suitable.


Q)  How do I decide which paint stripper to order?

A) It is very easy. Just try answering the following questions:
1) Is it practical for you to dip (immerse) your object into a tank of liquid paint strippers?
  Yes. Then Immersion type of paint strippers will be the way to go.
  No. Then, you have to choose brush type paint strippers.
2) Are you going to use paint stripper on a regular basis (say, at least 20 Gallons or more per month)?
  Yes, Then, there is a chance that you will have to use EF paint 
  No. Then, there is a chance that you may be able to use MC paint 
  It is hard for us to give a definite answer to this question, 
  because the environmental regulations vary from state to state
  and country to country.

        Magnesium, and almost any

Q)  How much chemical do I need to apply using brush type paint stripper?

Q) WHY should I use Environmentally friendly paint stripper instead of methylene Chloride?

A)   Switching from methylene chloride to benzyl alcohol paint stripping will decrease a facility’s HAP emissions which will decrease the possibility that a facility will meet the HAP emissions threshold for an air permit under 40 CFR 70 and 71. Reducing HAP emissions may also help a facility to comply with the requirements of the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs) (40 CFR 63).
