Aqualis Cleaning, Preparation & Stripping

Aqualis Strip-Ease is a ready-to-use, “environmentally friendly methylene chloride free” universal paint stripper for all types of traditional stains and pigmented finishes. It has been designed to effectively remove paint and oil from all vertical/horizontal surfaces.

Its unique formulation is designed to coat the substrate to be stripped and not run off, ensuring its active ingredients work directly only on the coating to be removed. Once stripped, wood is restored to its bright, clean, natural look. 

Using Strip-Ease before re-application of a protective finish or stain helps ensure proper adhesion, penetration and optimum performance of the finish.

Surface Preparation

Pre-test a small inconspicuous patch of surface with Strip Ease to ascertain time required to strip the coating and observe for any signs of discolouration, shadowing, or etching or delamination of substrate. This may take between 15 – 30 min for most freshly coated surfaces. For heavier coated aged surfaces, gel may have to remain for at least one hour. User discretion will be required with intermittent testing at 10 – 15min intervals.


Ensure all safety Instructions are followed as per Safety Datasheet, wear safety goggles and gloves.

Once optimum dwell times have been established, liberally apply by brush or textured roller over areas to be stripped. Ensure it is applied evenly allowing the required time to soften or lift the old coating from the substrate. Depending on the degree of break-down in the old coating or the type of surface being cleaned, stripper may be removed using a scourer pad, plastic or metal scrapper, brush, or high pressure gerni.

Once the old coating has been successfully removed, wash surface down by water jet ensuring no residues is lodged in deep crevices, notches, or timber grain. If needed clean out using hard bristle brush. It is recommended that timber surfaces such as timber decks or cladding be lightly sanded to remove any raised timber fibres. Finally wipe surface down with a clean cloth or squeegee mop and allow thorough drying, surface is ready for painting.
