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.

GREAT PRODUCT AND SERVICE
By JACK from SCRANTON , PA.

My name is Jack Cantafio . I own The Wood Shoppe in Scranton Pa. . We do custom design custom build wood working . Very recently we had the task of stripping and restoring a Stienway baby grand piano circa 1905 . After much searching I found Total Strip . I called customer support and talked to Mr. Tom Cory . Tom spent about 20 minutes explaining total strips proper use . We recieved delivery in 3 days and started using it . Tom's advice was spot on . The product worked better than I hoped , with no awful chemical smell . I would absolutely recommend total strip for your projects ,

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Very Effective
By Mike from Blythewood, SC

Having to remove 3 layers of 30yr old bottom paint on 30ft whaler including a very thick copper layer to repair damages and was put on improperly (Peeling). Did not want to sand and deal with toxic dust. I put the stripper on in the morning (7:00am) about 1/4 inch thick and remove in the afternoon (5:00pm). Don't need to put paper on. Pulls multiple layers right off with a scrapper. Wash/scrub with water, spot touch ups. light sanding. Because it needs to go on thick you will need quite a bit. In my opinion well worth it.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Excellent product that exceeded my expectation
By Ed from Poulsbo washington

Verified Purchase

I give this product a five star rating. I used it to help remove copper based bottom paint that was inappropriately applied to an aluminum hull. To avoid the effects of electrolysis the bottom paint had to be completely removed. This product along with a good wire brush and elbow grease did an excellent job in removing the paint right down to bare metal. I highly recommend this product.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Best stripper I've used.
By Refinishing Amateur from Mystic, CT

Verified Purchase

I've tried just about every varnish stripper out there. This worked as advertised. Plus it did not have an overpowering odor. It worked quickly but still had considerable work-time if you couldn't babysit your project. On a well-used dining table taken out of our main cabin, I applied TotalStrip, covered it with coated paper I had on-hand and left it overnight. Nearly all the old varnish came off with one application. A second spot-application was used for built-up varnish in corners. It didn't raise the grain where I would notice. Followed up with a light sanding and have started varnishing.

Strip
By Onne from Jamestown

Works extremely well! When stripping several layers of varnish leave it on overnight and keep it off any other paints or varnished surfaces it removes everything!

Stripped and ready to varnish.

Ehhhhh
By Boat from Mystic, CT

Verified Purchase

While the product works well for thin layers, thick paint takes several applications and is hard to put in as thick as the instructions say to. This lroduct is no match for bottom paint. Save your money.

worked perfectly
By Rich from Dana Point CA.

Verified Purchase

Total Strip worked perfectly on my bright work. Striped five coats in fifteen Minutes,It was easy to scrap off with a putty knife and apply to a bilge pad. Soap water and scotch pad did the rest. It raised the the grain slightly for a quick sand with 220 sand paper. The amazing thing it removed varnish from the Gel Coat with out any damage.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
