Do you guys have video of stripping bottom paint off small fiberglass keel boat I have a little Santana 20 needs a good stripping?
What about fiberglass?
I am ready to buy but am concerned that you cant furnish feedback concerning history of fiberglass applications?
I can't help with a video but this stuff is majic. I restored a 14 foot mahogany boat. I stripped it to the bare wood. This stuff made it easy.. paint it on.. wait 24 hours.. wipe off.. I mean wipe not scrap the old varnish off the bare wood. I couldn't recommend it more!
can't tell you buy experience but I'd bet.. no problem.. the stuff is majic!
Does this work on VC 17 (teflon-based) antifouling paint?
don't know... worked great in varnish and strain.. best stuff zi ever used. easy and perfect job!
I don't know.
Really don't know we are a furniture refinishing company and product works great on all finishes not sure about a Teflon product
I can't really answer this question but will ask, are you sure your paint is Teflon-based? Might it not just have Teflon particles in it that float to the surface, or some such thing? In that case this remover might be fine. I have used a little of it, and found it is indeed fast, for a "safe" stripper. I am going to try it with the paper or fabric that comes with Peel Away paint removers, soon, and I expect it to be much faster than Peel Away's marine stripper which was glacially slow on some dory planking I just stripped.
Which is the best product for removing varnish from wood floors so that I can stain them without sanding them?Ray k
This stuff is great on boats, but I'd sand that floor.
I used the product on a boat. It was great! I did sand afterwards Easy to use. Little messy but ready easy. Put it on.. wait 24 hours.. Wipe it of.. mo scrapping.I did 2 applications. Wood was completely stripped. Good luck
Ultra strip is a great product we use on all our restoration projects but we wash residue with denatured alcohol ize clean rags to wipe
Does this work on brick?
Since I used USPS on a fiberglass boat I can't say if it will work on brick. It very likely will remove any paint from the brick. Brick is porous so It may leave a stain. You should check with the manufacturer to get their opinion.
Hi,Wish i could help, but so far I've only used on metal.It has done well on decades-worth of thick paint.Likely to be effective on brick, as the surface would presumably give some "tooth" to keep the remover against the paint.
Have not tried on brick but would expect it to work. Medium stiff synthetic brush that won't damage the brick and Cleanup cold be done with low pressure water source if on exterior..

It did not work very well on my boat.
Will this work on aluminnim? At our church we have 50 yr old candle sticks that need to repainted. Also does this come in a smaller size or is the something similar to this, as we have about 16 or 18 to strip and repaint. they about an inch and 1/2 thick and 12 inchs tall and wont be usin the gallon up.
I haven't used the stuff on aluminum, but it really does a nice job taking off old paint. I'd try it on a small area first. You might find you need more than you think. It works best if you really glop it on thickly and give it time.
is this product safe to work on fiberglass (inside?)
It is safe for fiberglass, and low oder, but LOTS of ventilation. It is messy to remove, since it is a sticky mess, so use lots of paper towels and cover what you do not want to strip. It works fast.
Hi Scot, I used it successfully to remove one part enamel paint from the outside of my hull. I do intend to use it to strip some varnish from inside my boat. I will follow the mfgr.s safety instructions.
Have only used it on wood (outside) - sorry I can't help.....
I have not used it on fiberglass. I used it for exterior paint removal on my house. I really like it as it did better than any Jasco product on removing most water and oil/lead paints. It was a bit goo-ier than Jasco during the post-scrape, but I didn't get the "Jasco burn" (when it could get on your skin) nor the Jasco "eau de cologne" fumes.
will it remove auto paint?
I have no idea if this paint remover will remove auto paint. The paint on my boat is a two part epoxy and it is working (slowly) on removing that. I might assume it would be as effective on car enamel but perhaps not on lacquer. Best to check with the manufacturer.
I dont know but dont see a reason why not. I used on boat bottom paint and it worked fairly well. the key is to put it on thick and give it time to work. ultimately ended up sanding though. hope this helps.
Quick answer: I don't know for sure.Longer answer: The di-isocyanate chemistry used in two part linear polyurethane boat paints is very similar to auto paint, so it might work. My experience with this stuff on boats is that it works, but you have to let it sit for 15-60 minutes and then it will lift one part polyurethane paint. I haven't tried taking off two part polyurethane, but suspect it is harder. This would not be my first choice. Good luck.
I have no idea, it worked great on bottom paint.

The most amazing paint removal product EVER!!
My husband and I are remodeling a 1940s cottage in Houston and one of the last terrible issues was the door frame inside the bathroom. It looked like a double cheese pizza. None of my workers wanted to attempt the paint removal. One tried with a heavy duty sander and removed around an inch, max. I couldn't wallpaper until I tackled this job. Your product took me down to the wood. At least 6 coats of paint. No fumes. No burning hands.THE BEST.

UltraStrip - Works Quickly - User Friendly
UltraStrip easily removes six coats of heavy paint from our Trolley Restoration project. Non-caustic and bio-degradable. Leave in place and it continues to work for hours or days.
Good Product, Easy to use
I used this to remove 4 year old epoxy bottom paint. It worked well when scraped off after about 4-6 hours. When I left it on for 24 hours it dried and was hard to scrape off.The stripper worked well to soften the old paint and made removal easy with a putty knife.

serious paint removal chemical
this is a strong paint stripper. Use gloves. let it dry leather hard overnight lightly covered.
I do not have a nickname- wierd ask
The product was left on the boat for several days due to inclement weather and lower temps, as recommended by several users. Eventually the temp got back to normal, but the paint stripper was spotty, and in several spots went right through the gelcoat. The gelcoat is pretty old, and most likely damaged by abuse & the elements to some degree. Won't use this again unless I get a hot summer day, which has not been the norm in Central NY in 2014.I'm stripping a 1974 Whaler that has had a rough life, and believe I'll use a heat gun for the duration.In a perfect world, I think this would work fine for a moderate strip job; I doubt the advertised layers of paint would actually work.. but I'll re try some of it next summer. Any recommendation would be with several caveats.

Use a heat Gun!
Used 3 galloons on a 13ft Whaler. Not very effective overall, and took my gelcoat off as much as it did paint.
Great paint stripper
This paint stripper works excellent. It took some experimenting to find the most efficient way for it to work. I'm stripping all the paint off the cabin and deck of a Bristol 40 sailboat. Its a large area so I've been working in sections. Air temperatures have been between 70 and 85 degrees, I've found 70-80 to be the optimal temperature. Initially I tried it in small areas for shorter duration soaks 2-6 hours, then I tried leaving it overnight which produced better results. What I have found to work the best is to put it on thick and then cover it with a cheap plastic drop cloth, then I smooth the air bubbles out of the drop cloth and leave it for 24 hours. When I lift up the plastic sheeting alot of the old paint is stuck to the plastic. Then I use a 6" steel putty knife to get the bulk of it up and into a 5 gallon bucket, after that I use a scraper. Two applications of the above procedures seems to remove all the paint down to the gel coat. Two other points that I really like alot are the fact that it's non flammable and produces very low to almost no odor.
Best paint stripper I have found
I have a 1920's bungalow home with many layers of paint on all the windows and doors. I am stripping them all and nothing I have found works as fast or easy as Ultra Strip.

Good stuff, can't wait to use it on other things!
Not Great For Bottom Paint
Used this to remove bottom paint of 15 years. It took three times the amount of time Aqua Strip did.Use the Aqua Strip for bottom paint.
