Additional Peelaway 7 blankets are available if required.
Read more about paint and varnish stripping from wood in our blog.
Areas to be stripped should be clean, dry and free from any surface dirt and debris that may restrict contact and adhesion of the Peel Away 7 Poultice. Ensure that any surfaces not intended to be stripped are covered and protected from this product.
Always do a test area before starting any project to test product performance and suitability. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the container at all times.
Due to the multitude of paint and varnish formulations over the years, it is vital that a test area is done to determine which approach is effective for removing the paint on the project to hand.
Peel Away 7 will work slower under 5℃ and will not work if temperature falls below 0℃. This product will not remove baked enamels, cement based paints or some types of 2 pack epoxy coatings.
Please Note: Peelaway 7 has been designed to work on paints and varnishes produced from around 1972 onwards. If the area to be stripped has deeper layers of paint from around 1972 and earlier PeelAway 1 Paint Remover may be required to remove these older lead based products. Be sure to read the manufacturer's instructions for use before applying to be sure you have the appropriate product for the project you are working on.
Q. Which Peelaway product is best for my project?
A. We recommended buying the PeelAway 1 and 7 Sample Twin Pack. Not only will this tell you which Peelaway will work best for your specific project, you can also gauge how thick the product needs to be applied, to be effective against the amount of paint you have to remove.
Very good system for removing paint from GRP. Very effective at varnish removal on the mahogany ply on my boat but seemed to darken the wood where it had been weathered. Oxalic acid counteracted this.
Haven’t used the product but great service .
Peelaway 7 did a good job in removing 100 year-old gloss wood stain from my oak front door. However, it was quite messy to apply and I found I had to use about 30% more of it than the instructions suggested would be necessary. I would use it again, though if stripping a door I would want to remove it and strip it horizontally instead of vertically, to minimise mess.
Hello Dr Dunn,
Thank you for taking the time to send in some feedback about his product. It may be that the Peelaway 1 would have suited your project slightly better as it is for older paints and is slightly more aggressive. The Sample Pack contains Peelaway 1 and 7 to try and is a good place to start.
For more advice you can call or helpline and speak to one of our friendly advisers on 01303 213838.
kind regards Samantha.
Needed 2 coats, but did a great job of cleaning up exterior brickwork.
This stuff removes the paint but not the distemper underneath so much, but it does seem to soften the distemper so it ok to get off by hand. Happy with the finish.
bought this and Home Strip eco paint remover and this was way better. Left on 3 days on concrete stairs and stripped away years of old gloss paint that the Home Strip couldn't touch as it had bonded so tightly with the concrete! Would definitely use again! On stubborn areas definitely needs left longer than 24 hours though!
Easy to put on and very effective. I needed to use 2 coats as there was so much paint to remove. The second coat meant the residue paint came off very easily.
Makes light work of striping of my stained glass windows and they are now starting to look great thanks x
I used it to remove the paint from my old front door. After the first application, I managed to remove no less than 5 coats of paint in one go. The claim that it is able to remove up to 20 layers seems quite optimistic to me, nevertheless I noticed that you get better results if you manage to apply pressure to the wrapped poultice and leave it working for 48 hours (where I managed to do that, it removed ALL layers in one go). It is not messy to deal with and the only drawback is that the whole process takes a lot of time (in my case, one day to apply the poultice and wrap the door, two days for it to do its job, another day to scrap it off), but perhaps it was just me not skilled enough to proceed faster. All in all, a 5-star product in my opinion.
I must say that overall I am pleased with the product. We are using it to remove paint from the exterior of a red brick Edwardian home and it is pretty good. The only issue is we needed to do it twice, for some weird reason, irrespective of the thickness of the first coat. But the bricks have come out perfectly after a quick jet spray. Oh and I reused the blankets, the spare blankets they sell are extortionate for what you get and frankly insulting.
Thank you for taking the time to send in a review about this product, on occasions we have had feedback from customers that two treatments have been necessary. I am pleased to hear that you where able to reuse the blankets and save money.
The blankets sold separately are very specifically designed for use with its Peelaway product, so Peelaway blankets for 1 are different to those for Peelaway 7. If there is anything further that I can help with please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Kind regards Samantha.
Just what was needed for the moulded timbers
Great product. Used on a cast iron fireplace to remove several layers of old paint. Left for 12 hours and the majority scraped off. Still had to get some wire wool to get tye old paint off the details but made the process very easy. Just make sure you put plenty of sheeting down when removing - it can get messy!
easy to apply and pleasant enough compared to other paint strippers and does not slide off vertical surfaces
This product is not a quick fix but it has done a great job of lifting off very old thick black layers of varnish off my beams. Very messy and takes a bit of a nack to get it off but have bought 30kg so far spit must be ok!
Works well but doesn't really remove more than 5 to 10 coats in one application. needs several repeat application.
Brilliant product, I used this to remove approx 5 layers of masonry and gloss from a 1930s storm porch. I now have 100% clean brick. Nice one.
The project - strip paint from old 10 pane door with lots of moulding round the glass panes. Peelaway 7 took the top layer of paint off very efficiently, but it didn't penetrate too far into lower layers, so had to re-apply. Perhaps I should have used Peelaway 1, but even with using the samples first, it was impossible to tell if one was better at the job than the other.
I bought the sample kit and tried Peelaway 1 and 7 on a plasticy textured paint over several other layers on a wall. Peelaway 1 stripped the paint back to bare plaster, but also made the plaster rough and needed neutralising. Peelaway 7 did the job almost as effectively - I left it several days. The paint did not adhere much to the blankets so I was able to use them again. I had less good results on a door.
Previous owner painted the exterior of our house with interior paint. Needed to strip the entire front of the house due to moisture being retained in the bricks. This stuff works great. Still some scraping and washing required, but much easier and better than the alternatives.
Brushes on but difficult to move about. I used the recommendation on the layer thickness it removed a few layers of varnish but didn't take it back to bare wood. Repeated process with thicker layer of remover. Good product, requires a little patience to get best functional use out of it!
