Product Details

TotalStrip is a powerful, fast-acting finish remover that quickly breaks down paints, 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. This improved formula contains no NMP or caustic methylene chloride, and the 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.

Info & Guides

Application Tips

TotalStrip is safe for use on most surfaces, including wood, stone, metal, fiberglass, and gelcoat. However, you should always test before applying to a large area. For best results, apply anywhere from 1/4" to 1/2" thick. TotalStrip can remove a few layers in as little as 15 minutes, or leave it on the surface longer to remove more layers. To make the stripper work more effective on multiple layers, apply a layer of wax paper or plastic wrap over the stripper.

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.

Did the job....
By Mike from Boynton Beach, Florida

Verified Purchase

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.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Performs as advertised
By Erik from Oregon

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.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Great product
By Bottoms Down from MA

Verified Purchase

Worked really well. I had to use multiple coats because I had over 20 years of different bottom paints on there, but it took it all off. Make sure you wear gloves and old clothes because it's a messy job.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Removed varnish drips
By Tom from Portland maine

Verified Purchase

I finally was able to remove some old varnish drips from the topside of my boat without damaging the gel coat. Should have found this product a long time ago. It softened the drips and I removed them with a plastic putty knife.

Don't Skimp
By Antique Catboat from New England

Verified Purchase

This product took off 3 layers of 50 year old paint buildup very well. I had applied it at first in a thin coat like it was paint and had little success…..then I read the instructions. It needs to be applied like you are spreading jelly on a PB&J sandwich. Once I applied the thicker coat and waited about 45 minutes the paint just roller right off. I was also able to use a power washer to remove the treated paint on ornamental fixtures which saved me hours of detail sanding.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

The product worked better than I hoped , with no awful chemical smell . I would absolutely recommend total strip for your projects ,
