Protect areas not to be stripped, as Equisol Strip will damage paint and other surfaces.


Wear protective gloves and goggles. Shake bottle well.

Apply to dry surface with brush, soft broom or spray in direction of the grain. Apply and strip in areas 12m2 or smaller for maximum effectiveness. Ensure Equisol Strip is pushed into the grain by scrubbing. Leave for 30 mins, keeping timber wet with light water mist to keep Strip moist. Be careful not to use too much water, which will wash Strip off the timber. After 30 mins, reapply Equisol Strip over the first coat and scrub in to reactivate the stripping formula. Leave on for another 30 mins, keeping moist with water mist.

REMOVAL: Test if finish is loose and lifts off surface with scraper. Timber will turn black where stripper is ready to be removed. Apply more stripper where timber is still light. The type and thickness of finish will affect the time until layers are loose.

Use a high pressure washer set to 50 bar (without turbo mode), working in the direction of the grain. A garden hose is not enough. Heavy finishes with multiple layers may require a repeat application of Equisol Strip. Soft timbers will feel furry due to the high pressure cleaning. Once Equisol Strip and finish has been removed, use a garden hose to rinse off any left over chemicals on the surface. Your timber should look bare but darker. Use Equisol Prime and Equisol Vitalise to brighten timber before oiling. Sand any rough or furry patches with 80 grit sandpaper to restore smooth finish.
