Low VOC water-based paint remover:
Designed to effectively lift epoxies,
urethanes, lead based architectural coatings, and powder
coatings. Recommended for use on nearly all substrates including
steel, aluminum, concrete, masonry, wood, (lead based paints) or
in any area where worker safety or damage to delicate equipment
may be a concern. DoradoStrip™ 2021 contains no TAP’s or Hap’s,
offers easy cleanup with soap and water or denatured alcohol.
Equipment and Tools:
DoradoStrip™ 2021 is engineered for
airless spray application. Ensure application equipment is free
of any previously applied products or chemicals or solvents
(especially mineral spirits). Clean with denatured alcohol prior
to use. Use only airless equipment with chemical resistant
packing, such as a Titan 440i or larger pump. Even the smallest
airless sprayer is capable of spraying this product. Equip the
sprayer with a tip size of 0.019 inches or larger (Example: a
519 or 425 tip). Other equipment: brushes, rollers, scraper,
masking tape, plastic (polyethylene) sheet, pressure washer,
electric drill with mixer, empty pails for clean-up, water.
Roller application should be used ONLY for horizontal surfaces.
The time required for penetration varies according to the type of paint, and the temperature. Most paint systems require 6 to 24 hours. Leave the stripper overnight for best results. Dwell time and stripper
application thickness required is best determined by a test area.
All DoradoStrip™ products need time to penetrate the coatings
and lift them off.
DoradoStrip™ 2021 is effective on Steel,
Aluminum, Concrete, Masonry and Wood and works great on Alkyd,
Zinc Based Coatings, Polyureas, Epoxies, Urethanes, Lead Based
Paints and Penetrating Stains or Sealers on Metal, Concrete,
Masonry and Plastic. Wherever there
is a choice between 2021 and 5051, remember the following: If
the coating has a "high build" or is reinforced with a high
percentage of solid content, then 5051 will work faster than
2021. However, 2021 will lift more deeply, thoroughly, and
completely than 5051. A second application may be needed with
What else to know:
Do not collect and/or store removed paint
and stripper waste residue in metal containers. Only use plastic
containers. If you scrape, sand, or remove old paint, you
may release lead dust or fumes. LEAD IS TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO LEAD
DUST OR FUMES CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ILLNESS, SUCH AS BRAIN DAMAGE,
ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN. PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD ALSO AVOID
EXPOSURE. Wear a properly fitted NIOSH-approved respirator and
prevent skin contact to control lead exposure. Clean up
carefully with a HEPA vacuum and a wet mop. Before you start,
find out how to protect yourself and your family by contacting
the USEPA National Lead Information Hotline at 1-800-424-LEAD or
log on to
www.epa.gov/lead. Follow these instructions to control
exposure to other hazardous substances that may be released
during surface preparation. We recommend that you leave removal
of Lead Based Paints to a certified professional. NOT
APPROVED FOR AVIATION USE!
In tests we found DoradoStrip™ 2021 to be a
nice product with good consistency. The product was able
to spread easily and the smell was not overwhelming. We
found removal a little bit more difficult to get started, but
most of our paint peeled off like a giant skin.
