Powerclean Special Paint Remover dissolves and removes aqueous lacquers (acrylic based), 2-component paints, adhesives, epoxy, synthetic resin paints, oil paints (conditional) and elastic coating systems.


Development of characteristics:

Powerclean Special Paint Remover is a paint stripper based on slowly evaporating solvents that dissolve the binder system of the paints to be removed so that they can be easily stripped or washed off. In order to enable the full development of the dissolving characteristics, make sure that enough material has been applied. If too less Powerclean has been applied, the surface will become dry and whitish-yellowish. In this case, do not remove with water, but apply Powerclean again; the dissolving process will be reactivated. The dissolved coatings should always be removed at the optimum dissolving point (saving cleaning time, minimises costs).


Disturbing influences:

Damp substrates, rain, draughts, low temperatures (cold), very highly absorbent substrates, insufficient ventilation during application, insufficient application of material.

Supportive influences:

Warm temperatures, covering the stained surfaces with thin PE film (not a must!); indoors, this significantly minimises the development of odours. Sufficiently long exposure time (test areas).


Exposure Time:

At least 30 minutes up to 1 hour, days (under foil). Determine the optimal exposure time by creating a test area.




Preparatory measures:

The object conditions or ambient conditions must be checked (see property development). If the dissolved coatings are removed with a hot water high-pressure cleaner, collection devices must be planned as part of the scaffolding installation (see removal procedure). The object must be registered due to the responsible authorities. When Powerclean Special Paint Remover is applied using the airless method, it is recommended to suspend the scaffold with tarpaulins and to pay special attention to the safety instructions.

Powerclean Paint Remover is ready for use and is not allowed to be modified. Open the container. If liquid has settled (this is not a defect), stir the product well.

Apply Powerclean Special Paint Remover evenly with an airless applicator, brush, trowel, roller, spatula, trowel or smoothing trowel (no plastic bristles).

Application by airless method: completely remove filters and sieves in the unit

Standard nozzles: mm/inch 0,530/0,021 bis 1,070/0,043

Working pressure: 40 - 80 bar depending on the nozzle used

Air-pressure operated airless device: working pressure approx. 2 bar


Removal of dissolved coatings:


The removal of dissolved coatings should always be carried out directly at the optimum time for dissolution. The longer the already dissolved coating remains on the mineral substrate, the more the wash-off behaviour deteriorates, which may lead to longer cleaning times or longer times for removal. The solvents penetrate deeper into the substrate on soft and open-pored substrates. The evaporation of the solvents from the substrate can therefore take several days.
