The PeelAway 1 and 7 Sample Twin Pack contains a sample of both the PeelAway 1 and PeelAway 7 poultice system to help you decide the most suitable version to use for stripping paints and varnishes. It is also perfect for assessing application thickness and necessary drying times.
Each of the sample pots contain 150g of poultice, a plastic applicator and plastic blanket to cover the poultice once applied. Approximate blanket size: 34cm x 41cm
Surfaces that have been over-painted for decades may require an application of PeelAway 7 initially to remove the more modern top coats of paint from the last 30 or 40 years, followed by an application of PeelAway 1 to remove the older metal and lead based paints commonly used in the early 1970's and prior.
Please Note: Peel Away 1 should not be used on aluminium. It may also mark (scorch) some types of Oak and other hard woods.
Areas to be stripped should be cleaned to remove dirt and debris from the surface that may restrict contact and adhesion of the PeelAway poultice. Ensure that any surfaces not intended to be stripped are covered and protected from this product.
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 is required to be effective.
Peel Away 7 will work slower under 5°C and will not work if temperature falls below 0°C. This product will not remove baked enamels, cement based paints or some types of 2 pack epoxy coatings.
