Application Procedure

Apply liberally with a synthetic brush or roller.

Do not allow to dry on wood. If product dries, mist lightly with water or re-apply Stripex™.

Wait approximately 5 to 45 minutes for Stripex™ to soften the coating. The coating should easily rinse off when ready.

Agitate where required with a synthetic scrub brush. Rinse in direction of wood grain with a garden hose or pressure washer at low setting (500-1200 PSI) to reduce scrubbing.

If brightening is required, use Simple Wash™ prior to applying Stain Prep™. Wood can be protected the same day using damp wood friendly Natural Deck Oil™.


4.6 to 14 sq.m. per 3.8L (50 to 150 sq.ft. per US gallon).

Application Tips

Stripex™ will strip most semi-transparent oil based wood-stains.

For thick, or pigmented stains use Stripex™-L and for paints use RemovALL™ 220 or 320.

Heavily weathered wood surfaces may look fibrous after rinsing Stripex™. Immediately brushing along the wood grain helps remove the loose fiber.

Wood rich in tannin may darken during restoration. If additional brightening is required use Simple Wash™ or Industrial Blonding Agent™.

Stain Prep™ should be used to balance the pH of the wood surface before re-coating. The result will be a longer lasting, even and natural looking finish.


Dispose of remaining product in accordance with applicable environmental regulations.

Neutralise with diluted acid, Simple Wash™) or citric acid (vinegar).
