Peel Away 1 Paint Removal System comes as a complete kit including cover blankets, application spatula and neutraliser located inside the container:
Please Note:This product should not be used to remove paint from veneers, plywoods or aluminium and may discolour certain hardwoods (such as oak and mahogany). The recommended alternative is the Peel Away 7 Paint Removal system.

Ensure that surfaces are free from dust, dirt and other contaminates so that the PeelAway paste has good contact and adhesion with the surface to be treated. Cover and protect any surfaces not intended to be stripped by Peel Away 1.
Check if the substrate / surface to be treated is resistant to high alkalinity. Composite materials, bound with natural adhesives and glue will be adversely affected by PEELAWAY 1 and should be avoided.
Always do a small test area to confirm performance and compatibility before starting any project and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the container at all times.
Test patches are vital for this product. Mask off a small area and apply the paste at different thicknesses to determine which thickness is required to remove the layers of paint or varnish. Leave each test area for up to 12 hours and see how effective each has been. It is recommended that 3 test strips are done, 1mm, 2mm and 3mm, before starting the project to determine how much PeelAway 1 is required to be effective.
Please Note: If surfaces have been painted again and again for many years, it may be necessary to use PeelAway 7 Paint Remover to deal with the more modern layers of paint first. These are usually paints and varnishes applied from around 1972 onwards. PeelAway 1 can then be used on the older coats from around 1970 and earlier.
Softwoods such as pine may darken slightly. Oak often turns black after being in contact with this product. Mahogany may turn a purple hue. Hardwood timbers such as fine Veneers, Hemlock and Douglas Fir may also darken after contact with Peelaway 1, which may be prohibitive when the natural wood appearance is desired. In these situations, the use of a conventional Paint and Varnish Remover may be more appropriate.
PeelAway 1 should not be used on gesso (a form of putty) mouldings sometimes used on apparently carved fireplace surrounds. This product will work slower under 5℃ and will not work if temperature falls below 0℃. PeelAway 1 will not remove some types of 2 pack epoxy coatings, baked enamels or cement based paints
This product is fantastic, stripped layers of paint of door frame and window frame with a breeze!
I have experimented with a number of products when stripping painted Victorian wooden door frames and this one came out top. The paste is easy to apply, cover with the blankets and leave for as long as necessary. When removing it couldn't be easier - use a scraper to assist when necessary and the paste and paint lifts effortlessly off the surface of the wood leaving little behind or just as importantly mess - and my old lead paints have been safely removed too. The instructions do say to experiment first to get the right depth and length of application plus its effectiveness varies depending on the actual paint to be removed. Highly recommended.
This product is very impressive. It did indeed strip old paint back to the wood. Removal was messy as it was still wet and did not all stick to the paper even after 2 days. The other problem was that the weight of the product caused it to partly slide off vertical surfaces before I had time to cover it with the paper. I hope next time to do better.
Used on 6-8 layers of paint from brown lead paint below to gloss on top.Applied Pealaway 1,then put the paper on top, left overnight.The stripping next morning was straightforward, the paper came away with all the layers of paint attached with hardly a scraper needed! Including the old lead paint, cleaning up with wire wool a bowl of water and a sponge and some lovely oak revealed. Gloves and safety glasses needed as peelaway 1 is very alkaline.
I have used Peel-Away before on plaster cornice and it works well but I used it on newel posts and left it too long before removing it. It dried the wood out and caused some splits to open up. I am now feeding the wood with oil.
Easy to apply to vertical, uneven surfaces. Patience is needed if removing multiple layers of paint, but if left for days, it is highly effective. Don't be mean with application depth either, as this helps with the multiple coat removal also.
Does what is says on the tin if used properly, brilliant product will buy again if required
About the only effective stripper nanny allows us to use. I've tried other non methyl chloride strippers and I might has well have painted yoghurt on it.
we have found it works very well
I tried 2 different products in the process of our doors renovations. I used first Peel Away 1, it acts slowly, so I decided to try another product. That other product was a poison... I had to wear a mask, which didn't help a lot. Acted faster, but only on 1 layer, and was so messy... so I went back to Peel Away and great job! Just needed to be wait a bit longer, NO SMELL wich was blessing comparing to the 2nd I tried, still messy, but as much as the other one. I would recommend this paint stripper, and will band the other once as they seam health hazard...
Would recommend for stripping stone/ brickwork. Don't rush it and it will work well.
A friend recommended this product as I wished to strip the paint from a cast iron fireplace. Whilst it doesn't quite do the job for you it certainly makes it very much easier than a traditional paint stripper. You really do need to the do the test patches as described and be prepared to leave the product on for longer than 24 hours if required - I found 36 to 48 hours was required for about three layers of paint on cast iron. Use a scraper to remove the product that doesn't come off on the paper and then wire wool and a suitable material (iron wool, scourer or cloth, even a cotton bud) to clean up using white spirit. Depending on the material you are stripping you may be able to use water for the clean up but not on iron! Allow plenty of time for the project and you will be happy with this product but do not think you are going to smear it all over in 5 minutes and 24 hours later pull it all of bringing every scrap of paint with it. With patience you really will have great results.
Used to remove paint from old fireplace tiles. Does exactly what it says.
We had a large area of various types of paint to remove from a brick wall. We left it on for 48 hours, we scraped most of with a wallpaper scraper and blasted the rest with the pressure washer. The wall came up really well just used a wire brush to remove a few remnants. Would really recommend.
Used this to remove about 8 layers of old lead oil based paint from a brick porch. Whilst you can use the remover without the provided sheets it works far better the less moisture it loses, the main reason the sheets are provided. I left mine on for 48hrs but with hindsight,36hrs would have been enough,as due to the very hot weather the underlying paste dried out somewhat,and the sheets did not adhere properly to the paste when trying to remove them. Be prepared for a messy removal and cleanup, as it's certainly not as clean as the product description would have you believe,but the product does what it say on the tub (removes built up layers of paint) and so comes highly reccomended.
I have used this product for the first time and found that it was so easy to use and have recommended it to othrer people when they have asked about the product.
This is by far the best paint stripper we have found for removing a lot of very old paint from decorative door surrounds and plainer window sills. We have an entire house of woodwork with generations of paint layers from victorian to 1980s to strip - PeelAway is a godsend and strips it all off in one go (odd small patches that don't strip but we think its down to the oddities of the paintwork). It is more expensive and more involved with washing and neutralising, than a liquid paintstripper but it saves so much time (and scraping) - well worth it.
