TotalStrip is a powerful, fast-acting finish remover that quickly breaks down marine paints, spar varnishes, lacquers, and stains in just minutes, and won't drip or sag on vertical or overhead surfaces. It can remove multiple layers in a single application because it can be applied thicker than other chemical strippers.
DIY boaters and marine trade professionals have been impacted by changing EPA regulations that restricted or eliminated the availability of powerful paint strippers that contained methylene chloride or NMP solvents. What works on household finishes isn't very effective on layers of antifouling paint. TotalStrip is the only effective marine paint remover we know of with no NMP or caustic methylene chloride in its formula. As a bonus, its low odor is ideal for indoor or shop use.
Simply use a brush, putty knife, or roller to apply up to 1/2 inch thick. It works quickly on one-part finishes, removing a layer of paint in as little as 15 minutes. TotalStrip is even effective on tough bottom paints that ordinary paint strippers can't remove.
Its easy-on, easy-off non-caustic formula needs no acid wash neutralization after application – just clean up with water.
Available in a 1 Gallon container.
|Container Size:||1 US Gallon|
|Coverage:||Depends on application thickness - approximately 50-75 sq. ft. per gallon.|
Most finishes will lift off using a putty knife or stiff brush. Use a brush or stripping pad with water to remove residue. Make sure the surface is dry before painting. Clean up with water.

Don't have to sand to remove paint. Apply then scrape.

I am in the process of refinishing my exterior teak on my 1981 Grand Banks. After watching some YouTube videos from Boatworks Today and Onne van der Whal, I wanted to give Total Strip a try. But a seasoned varnish professional from Antigua strongly advised that I use an old fashioned heat gun and scraper method to bring the old finish down to the wood. I tried that technique and it was so slow and time-consuming that I gave up hope. Now I know why these guys are so expensive. It's the labor cost of manually bringing the finish down to the wood. I went back to my original thought of using the Total Strip product on my transom teak and it was awesome. In a few hours I had all the varnish removed. And it was so easy I can't begin to estimate how much time Total Strip is going save me on this overall project. I'm actually looking forward to doing this project myself now. Suffice it to say I am VERY happy. Many thanks. Jim Andersen #Onnevanderwhal #Boatworks #BoatworksToday #KatyLeigh

This product works. It works even better if you put thick coat on and plastic wrap on the top so it doesn't dry out. Wait 20 mins and simply wipe off. So easy.

Virtually no smell. Doesn't burn your skin if you apply it and cover it with wax paper and roll the air out from underneath the paper you can let it sit for a day and you come back with a plastic spatula and the old varnish literally falls off.

I was removing two coats of 18 month old ablative paint from a boat. After giving up sanding I went with scraping which was hard work where it was easier and very hard work in some spots. This helped in the really tough spots when I left a really thick coat on for two hours. Where scraping was more doable it didn't add much and made a gooey mess. The goo at least wasn't a cloud of toxic dust but still I found it better to just use this in the tougher patches.

I have a teak grate that is at the bottom of the galley that needs to be varnished. It's walked on and time has had its way. The total strip performs flawless and it now looks like new raw wood.

Low odor, not very caustic, easy to apply. Easily removed the top layer of bottom paint. Did not remove multiple layers of bottom paint as advertised. Dried out when left for hours, even when covered with wax paper.

I used Total Strip to remove about 10 years of ablative bottom paint residue from a 20' sailboat. It took minimally two applications to complete that task at temperatures between 75 - 85 F. Trial and error was necessary to determine how long to leave the stripper on the paint. I found ~ 15 min to be optimal at those temperatures. It would have been helpful to have better direction on this issue as when left on too long, it was very difficult to remove both the stripper and the paint.

Used this product to remove epoxy deck paint over gel coat and was highly effective. I let sit over night, and was able to use a plastic scraper to remove the vast majority of the paint in wrinkled sheets.
