Peel Away 7 Paint Remover comes as a complete kit, including cover blankets and an application spatula which are located inside the container.
Read more about paint and varnish stripping from wood in our blog.
Spare blankets are available as required.
Areas to be stripped should be cleaned to remove dirt and debris from the surface 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.
Ensure you apply the paste to a small test area and at different thicknesses (1mm, 2mm, 3mm) to determine which thickness of paste is required to remove the layers of paint or varnish. Leave each test area for a different amount of time (up to 12 hours) and see how effective each has been. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.
Peel Away 7 will work slower under 5℃ and will not work if temperature falls below 0℃. Peelaway 7 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.
It did not work on my Chinese carved table although I applied Peelaway twice, and left it on overnight the second time. The Peelaway remover just seemed absorb some of the varnish and turn a light brown, but did not peel any of the varnish away. Having said that, I do not think the fault lies with Peelaway - the Chinese table is covered in an unusually hard lacquer-based varnish and is probably not all that common in the UK.
Having tried various other paint strippers and being very disappointed I did an online search and found out about PeelAway products. After some reserch I purchased a couple of taster pots and was amazed at the results. When the time came to do the job I immediately placed an order for a larger pot and I have to say the results were amazing. This stuff does what it says. It works. No smells, no mess to clear up. Worth every penny.
Used to take yeas and years of paint on a ceiling rose , worked very well.
Great results on a very old window frame.
I restore old clocks, requiring stripping old (100 yr old shellac based products) varnish from antique clocks, I have tried most paint strippers and the only product that works easily, with no messy insoluble gunge is Peelaway 7. No discolouring of very old, dry, porous and brittle timbers. The product is a pleasure to use.
Used this to strip a bannister handrail which a well known brand of paint remover had little affect on. Left this on for 24 hrs using the blankets provided and it came off a treat. The added bonus was there was little or no odour.
Used on about 7 layers of gloss on door frames. One use and it was back to the wood. Follow the instructions, use the blankets. Its simple.
This product effectively stripped multiple layers of paint from some decorative plaster features in our house. We left it in place for 48h and afterwards, the paint came away easily.
This is such a fantastic product, so easy to use , i was very impressed with the results ,there was very little odour that really impressed me as i was anticipating have to ventilate the area but that wasn't necessary .I was stripping the paint from from my stairs and banisters which was very tricky using the little spatular that was provided so i had to resort to using other methods.
I had a problematic fibreglass double garage door of 10.8 square metres that had ~10 layers of paint built up over 30 years on top of it. No fibreglass primer was used and previous re-paints had shown that the previous owner didn't do any prep when painting, there was dirt between the bottom layers, hence big chunks of paint were regularly flaking off. Replacing the door wasn't a viable option due to cost and being unable to find a door style that would match the house and a neighbouring garage. After a lot of research of options that would not damage the fibre glass gel coat, such as soda blasting and remembering the time consuming and less than ideal results with ordinary paint stripper over the years, I was apprehensive of the product, but the reviews here and the video's on YouTube were good, so I decided to give it a go. I had to use Peel Away 7 since Peel Away 1 and most other paint strippers would damage the fibreglass gel coat. Secondly, due to the door size and volume of material, I only had enough for 1mm of coverage if I was careful, so I decided to see if it could do it all in one go. After all, I could always do a second application if I had to. Application was fairly easy with the supplied plastic scraper, but you need a wide brush for the decorative recessed detailed bits. Make sure you mix it up the poultice per the instructions, this makes it creamier and easier to apply. You need to cover the material promptly to stop it drying out and ensure the sheets stick well to the mixture (or it wont peel away later). I taped the plastic sheets together with parcel tape to stop it drying out on the edges and to stop the wind getting in behind the plastic sheets and removing them. The first coat started to dry out before going through all the paint (I think it ran out of power after about 5 hours) then the plastic sheets peeled off under gravity when I was testing an area and wouldn't re-adhere to the poultice, so I couldn't leave it longer as it would just dry out and harden, so I was forced to to remove everything manually Removal wasn't difficult with the help of an ordinary scraper and a 150mm sharp scraper. Loads of paint came off really easily, but unfortunately not all the paint layers were soft. The removed material is easy to catch and put straight into a rubbish bag, hence cleaning up time and mess is minimised. This temporary stop confirmed the cause of the problem - shiny gloss paint and trapped dirt that could be seen between the layers and in the removed paint, so my hunch was right.! As I was now committed, I reluctantly got a second pot, which arrived next day. This went far better as it got through all the remaining layers and stayed moist. After 4-5 hours, I decided to remove the material, since since rain was forecast for the following morning. About 30% of the paint did indeed peel away and I think more would have done if I'd left it for a couple more hours to dry further, but time did not allow. I did not notice any fumes and it didn't burn if you get it on you. Removal was fairly easy as it binds together, rather than forming a hard to handle goo. You need a sheet or similar under the work to pick up the rubbish. Antinox sheets from Wickes / Travis Perkins are great for this. When removing the material, if its not peeling away and you have to do some manual scraping, then don't expose too much, since it does dry out and it becomes harder to remove. The only negatives I have with the product are : 1. The cost is expensive for what it is 2. You can't buy it easily on the high street, so you have to over estimate. Barretine need to get some into the shops ! 3. Its difficult to apply "1mm" or "2mm" as the instructions say, so you have to guess a bit or end up over-applying, which can get expensive again. 4. A couple more plastic sheets would be helpful, since you get exactly 10 sheets for 10M coverage, but this doesn't give any contingency for cuts or torn sheets etc.). I bought an extra pack just in case and ended up using most of them across the 20Kg of material. Over all, it did a great job and didn't damage the fibreglass gel coat. A number of passing people were surprised by what it managed to take off, both in terms of layers and area. Hopefully the new Dulux Ultra grip primer and full re-paint will be the last for a long time.
I have used this product on a few projects and know it quite well now. For me it is the best paint stripper available, bar none. Slap it on and you expect it to peel 20 layers ? absolutely not. Test patches are a must, and quiet a few of these if you are onto a large project. Some experience to share. Does not work under 5 deg C. Bin liner works just as well as the official sheets that gets used up in no time. Mixes well with a liberal spray of water if you need to paint it on and to keep it moist. Do not let it dry as it become powdery and messy to strip. If the paint layers are bonded well, like car paint, then this can strip many layers (like my garage door). If the paint is not bonded well to the deeper layer, then you could waste much not matter how thick layer you put on as the upper layer(s) bubbles too fast lifting the paste away from the lower layers. I have a 70s door frame, with some thick then fashionable 'one coat gloss' poorly painted on. These are the worst. Need one thin layer of peel away to get rid of the top coat, then another run with a thicker paste to get to the bone. Test patches, test patches and more test patches. I have questioned peelaway's effectiveness many times, and I have to go back to it at the end. It is the best, if you know your 'enemy'... so to say. Will use again as it even have a descent smell !!
The only thing to safely strip emulsion paint from rough wooden beams. Nitromores and Polystrip just made a sticky mess and the methylene chloride fumes are pungent and toxic
Works well on modern paint finishes and removes back to bare wood. Tried the sample size of PeelAway 7 and therefore knew what to expect and we were not disappointed.
Super product, would definitely buy again.
On old paint covered with new paint in a difficult to work in environment it required a lot of effort and was not as effective as I had hoped it would be.
Hello Mr Logan,
Thank you for the feedback, we have heard that occasionally a second application is required for full removal. But a test area should give a reasonable indication of how long to leave the poultice on for, for full removal.

easy to put on and remove. Brick looks great
Very pleased with the results in one coat on heavily varnished beams. Needed leaving longer than the recommended time and at first there looked as if there was little change but after leaving to dry out the oak is back to its natural pale colour, just needs the residue removing probably with a wire brush. Invaluable in a Grade 2 listed property where sand blasting isn't allowed. Not had such good results with it on stone but maybe just needs a bit more experimentation!
I used peel away 7 to strip the 90 yeare old oak wood panelling in my hallway. It has done a fantastic job. The wood looks amazing and it was easy to use....... once I got the hang of it. Would recommend to anyone.
Ineffective for removal of emulsion paint from brickwork - after initial scraping, I had to resort to steam cleaning and scrubbing with wire brush using plenty of water to wash debris away - extremely tiring and very messy leaving some damage to brick surfaces. Expensive compared to standard paint-strippers - I would not use again for removal of emulsion paints.
