SAFE STRIP T was developed to provide a more user and environmently friendly stripper for solventborne and waterborne sealers and paints. The thickened formula helps to increase dwell time to vertical or sloped sealed surfaces. SAFE STRIP T contains no methylene chloride, is not flammable, and is without the other problems associated with petroleum solvents. SAFE STRIP T 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. SAFE STRIP T is not intended for use on, and will damage, synthetic resilient flooring such as vinyl composition tile, sheet vinyl, luxury vinyl tile and linoleum. If in doubt about using SAFE STRIP T on a particular substrate, test in an inconspicuous area or consult SURTEC.
SAFE STRIP T is ready-to-use and is not intended to be diluted with water. Depending on the profile or texture of the surface, apply SAFE STRIP T using a mop, appropriate nap roller, or by brush. Work small areas at a time. SAFE STRIP T 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 from at least 15 minutes to 1 hour dwell time, occasionally scrubbing or agitating with a floor buffer equipped 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 SAFE STRIP T to dwell longer with occasional scrubbing. In most cases, the stripped sealer solution cannot be vacuumed up directly, therefore, when ready for removal, add water or a dilute detergent solution to the surface, scrub into the stripper, and pick up or vacuum the stripper solution using a wet-dry vacuum. 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, inspect for residue or unstripped sealer, and repeat the above procedures as necessary.
