Paint strippers use strong chemicals in order to dissolve paint and allow you to remove the paint layers from the surface you have treated. However, with most paint removers, once you have scraped the surface and removed all of the old paint you need to neutralize the surface. If you do not neutralize the surface any future painting will not bond.
The surface that has been stripped needs to reach a certain pH level, pH 7. Neutralizing products are very effective at restoring the pH level of the surface quickly. Ensuring the surface is clean from debris and dirt, you dissolve the solution in water and apply to the surface. After allowing to work in to the surface, you scrub the surface with a brush before rinsing off. You can test the surface with a strip of pH paper to get an accurate reading before proceeding.
Always check the individual instructions for the paint stripper you have used to check the manufacturer's recommendations, if there is no clear guideline and you are unsure about anything please give our sales team a call for advice.
