Low VOC water-based paint remover:
Designed to effectively lift urethanes, lacquers, latexes, alkyds,
elastomeric's and varnish. Recommended for use on architectural surfaces such as wood, brick and masonry where non-lead based paints are present or in any area where worker safety or damage to delicate equipment may be of concern.
Equipment and Tools:
DoradoStrip™ 3031 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 use 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™ 3031 is effective on Wood,
Concrete and Masonry substrates and works great on Latex paints,
Thin film, Rigid & Elastomeric Urethanes and Penetrating Stains
What else to know:
In most cases, the coating type is
unknown. Always do a test patch to determine how suited
the product is for the job and how much dwell time will be
required. Depending on formulation, some organic zincs may
not be able to be removed.
In tests we found DoradoStrip™ 3031 to be
similar in performance to DoradoStrip™ 3032. DoradoStrip™
3031 was slightly thicker than 3032 but not by much. The
product did have an obvious smell (suitable for outdoor use) and
is white in appearance.
