APPLICATION AND USE
Preparation Protect floor or work area with a plastic tarp to catch run-off.
Method With a natural bristle brush, apply a liberal coat of Interstrip Semi-Paste over paint in an area no larger than 10 square feet at one time. Allow the Interstrip Semi-Paste to stand until all layers of existing paint are penetrated. This will vary from as little as 15 minutes for one layer to as long as 2 hours for several coats depending on temperature. Begin scraping. If the paint does not come off easily, reapply and increase the waiting time. After the surface is thoroughly scraped clean, apply Interstrip Liquid Stripper 399 to remove any residual paint or wipe the surface with a rag or pad soaked with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202.
Ventilation and Humidity Control Apply in a well ventilated area.
Brush Use a natural bristle brush.
Other Enamels removed from fiberglass will reveal gelcoat that has not been exposed to the same level of UV light as the surrounding area. Color variations in the gelcoat are likely.
Some Important Points Caution! To avoid damage to Fiberglass, do not leave Interstrip Semi-Paste on for more than 8 hours. Avoid painting in direct sunlight. Use ideally at room temperature (60-80 F/16-27 C).
