  DoradoStrip 2021 Industrial Paint Stripper  

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.

Dwell Time:
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.

Product Selection:
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 5051.

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 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!

Our Observation:
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.

For More Information:
Review the product label and/or view 2021 Architectural Paint Stripper Product Bulletin.


The DoradoStrip™ products work in a revolutionary way. They are absorbed through the paint or coating layer and work to detach it from the substrate. Once the bond is broken the paint bubbles up so that it can easily be removed!
