RemovALL™ 330 is a water-based paint remover that is biodegradable and user-friendly. It has the same strengthand patented technology as our other strippers, but in the convenience of a spray. It will remove the toughest coatings from a variety of surfaces. It is extremely effective in removing tough coatings like latex, urethanes, powder coatings and alkyds from concrete, brick, wood and metallic surfaces.
RemovAll 330 has proven it will effectively lift urethanes, lacquers, latexes, alkyd paints, lead based paints, elastomerics and varnish as well as most graffiti from all types of substrates, including wood, masonry, brick, concrete, steel and other porous and non-porous surfaces.
Typical projects include:
RemovAll products are powered by the patented SARA Technology. This technology utilizes the physical forces released by chemical reactions to break the bond between the paint and the substrate. Coatings just lift off cleanly, and float off the substrate, for easy collection and clean up. RemovAll products are powered by the patented SARA Technology.

Always prepare a test patch prior to full application. This will indicate the time required for project completion and suitability of product for the paint and substrate.
EQUIPMENT AND TOOLS:
This product is engineered for spray application. Airless sprayers or HVLP spray equipment are recommended. Even the smallest airless sprayer is capable of spraying this product. Equip the sprayer with a tip size of 0.019 inches or larger. (Example: a 519 or 425 tip). Other equipment: brushes, rollers, scraper, masking tape / polyethene sheet, pressure washer, electric drill with mixer, empty pails for clean-up, running water, rags.
(a) MASKING: Cover / protect areas where the paint is to be left on. This includes adjoining surfaces where over spray may travel. Polyethene sheets make a very effective barrier. If using masking tape, apply two layers of tape and remove the top layer immediately after application as the remover may soak through the tape, damaging paint under it. Plants should be covered or washed thoroughly with water before and during application.
(b) MIXING: Shake the can thoroughly before use.
Apply a thick, even layer of stripper onto the coating being removed. An airless spray machine is the most effective means for application. Always start the sprayer pump at the lowest pressure setting and slowly build up the pressure till an adequate fan pattern has been generated. High pressure is neither required nor desired. High pressure and narrow tip sizes will break the stripper's emulsion and will destroy its effectiveness.
When trying to build up films thicker than 30 mils (600 microns), or when trying to apply the stripper on a glossy or greasy vertical surface, it is advisable to build the stripper film in two separate applications. First apply a light coat of approximately 10 mils (250 microns), allow it to dwell for about 30 minutes and then build the rest of the stripper film thickness in a second application. Once applied, leave the stripper alone, as agitation slows down penetration.
Do not attempt to spread the stripper with a brush.
The product is engineered for thick film build up on vertical and overhead surfaces. The desirable wet film thickness of stripper is approximately one and a half times the dry film thickness of the paint. Minimum wet film thickness should be 15 mils (300 microns). Coverage is approximately 40 to 90 sq. ft. / US gal (1 to 2.2 sq. m / L)
The time required for penetration varies according to the type of paint, the thickness of the paint, and the temperature. Most paint systems require between 1 to 6 hours. Leave the stripper overnight for best results.
When there are multiple layers of paint, it is quite likely that there is poor inter-coat adhesion between some layers. Premature lifting may occur at this interface. If this happens, remove the lifted layers and re-apply the stripper. Do not allow the stripper to dry out. The stripper is designed to remain wet and effective over extended periods of time (up to 48 hours), but excessive sunshine, windy conditions or insufficient stripper thickness can cause early drying. If the stripper starts to dry, reapply a light coating and allow extra time for completion.
REMOVAL AND CLEANUP:
Removal of lifted paint can be completed by scraper, squeegee, wet/dry vacuum suction system or by high pressure (2,500 - 3,500 psi) water wash. The stripped surface must be rinsed with water to remove all chemical residue before re-painting. Collect lifted paint and dispose of in accordance with local government regulations. Do not collect and/or store removed paint and stripper waste residue in metal containers. Clean up spray equipment by running water through the equipment soon after the spraying has been completed., but the dwell time increases
Surface temperatures should be 65° to 95° F (20° to 32° C). The product does perform effectively at lower temperatures (even at 32° F, 0° C), but the dwell time increases.
Proper safety procedures should be followed at all times while handling the product. Refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet for important health / safety information before use.

Received several spray cans of RemovAll 330 and found an old piece of redwood siding that had been removed from our circa 1905 house to test the product on - there were approximately 4 layers to deal with [2 x paint, 2 x primer, I suppose]. I followed the instructions. But in order to get a sense of the effectiveness of the product I applied a section with the thicker application advised by the directions for use; AND, I applied a slightly less thick coating; AND I applied a thin coating. Then I checked after just 30 minutes; this was premature, in that the entire four layers had not been penetrated etc. so that my putty knife did not scrape down to the wood; however, it was clear that the "thin" or light application would probably not be effective. I returned in another hour, and the area that had received the thicker application easily was scraped down to the raised-grain of the wood I waited for an hour, and I felt that more time would probably increase the effectiveness, but if I had intended to apply a second application this would have been the time to scrape the siding, then reapply. I actually resprayed a thin layer of the RemovALL; I returned after another hour, and the wood scraped essentially clean - this time I used a sharp bahlco scraper. The scraped paint turns into a sticky thick putty like substance [i.e. it generally sticks together]. Therefore, my test suugests that, believe it or not, its a good idea to follow the manufacturer's directions for use. So, then following the instructions to a certain extent, I used just a wet paper towel and wiped the wood to remove any residue of the RemovAll - this worked fine. Even the odor was apparently absent in the morning.
I have some eaves painted on the underside, and it is a sensitive place to work etc.; so, after this test as described I am hopeful this product will allow me to remove all paint from this "upside-down" surface without release of dust or flakes or particles. [of course I will lay out plastic tarps to catch anything on the ground.] Looks like it will work. This product [or a similar product by the same company] has been reviewed by the This Old House House - folks some time ago, and received positive marks. By the way, the temperature during my test was in the mid seventies F.
Now reading another earlier review, I'll add that I did notice that if the pproduct dried, the paint really wouldn't scrape off- this happened in only the areas where I had applied the thin coating [one quick pass of the spray can]. Based on my test, I really feel that this product will work for me.

I used this recently October in Norther Michigan. I sprayed in on and left it for the required time. When I went to scrape it off it was some dry some wet yet. It did not come off well. I did then take one piece indoors and tried again. It still did not do any better than what I had tried before this product. I am a bit disappointed.
