ENVIROSTRIP was developed to provide a low odor, and more user and environmentally friendly stripper for solventborne and waterborne sealers and paints. ENVIROSTRIP contains no methylene chloride, is not flammable, and is without the other problems associated with petroleum solvents.
ENVIROSTRIP is safe to use on concrete, terrazzo (cementitious and resin-based), and masonry surfaces such as brick, natural stone, ceramic tile and quarry tile; it may also be used to strip wood floors down to bare wood. ENVIROSTRIP is not intended for use on, and will damage, synthetic resilient flooring such as vinyl composition tile, sheet vinyl, luxury vinyl tile and linoleum. Envirostrip has sufficient viscosity for use on vertical surfaces, and for stripping sloped surfaces or those with uneven profiles.
ENVIROSTRIP is ready-to-use and is not intended to be diluted with water. Apply ENVIROSTRIP using a mop or spread out using a deck brush. Work small areas at a time. ENVIROSTRIP can be very slippery underfoot, so proceed with caution if it is necessary to walk in treated areas. For solventborne and waterborne sealers and paints allow at least 15 minutes to 1 hour dwell time, occasionally scrubbing or agitating with a floor buffer with a brush, or by hand with a deck brush. For higher performance two-part urethane coatings, 1 to 3 hours of dwell time may be necessary.
Before picking up the stripper solution, check a small area (~1 square foot) to ensure the seal has been completely removed. If not, allow ENVIROSTRIP to dwell longer with occasional scrubbing. When ready for removal, add water to the surface, scrub into the stripper, and pick up or vacuum the stripper solution using a wet-dry vacuum. For masonry surfaces, scrub the stripped floor with SURTEC HC-150 diluted 2 oz. per gallon of water, followed by a thorough rinse with water. For wood surfaces, mop the floor several times using a tightly wrung mop with SURTEC NC-125 diluted 4 ounces per gallon. Allow the floor to dry completely before applying seal or finish.
