Limitations:  Not recommended for use on veneer, plywood, drywall, aluminum, brownstone, sandstone, limestone, fiberglass, glass laminates, Plexiglass, plastics, rubber and EIFS. Peel Away® Marine Strip will darken hardwoods. Not recommended for the removal of epoxies, urethanes, chlorinated rubber, cementitious paints, baked finishes and other high-performance coatings. Always do a test patch prior to full removal. 


Test Patch:  Always perform a small inconspicuous test area on each type of substrate and paint coating prior to full application. Testing before beginning any project is the best way to ensure product effectiveness. Test patches can determine the proper dwell time and thickness to apply the product for your specific application. Failure to do a test patch can result in need for more than one application, increasing labor and material costs.


Recommended Substrates:  Before applying to the entire substrate always do a test patch. Recommended for use on wood, concrete, cement, stone, stucco, plaster, cast iron, steel, marble, terra cotta, granite, terrazzo, copper, tin, tiles, enamel, clapboard and slate.


Regulatory Information:  VOC compliance - Peel Away® Marine Strip meets all national, state and local regulations.


Preparation:  Prepare surface by pressure washing to remove all loose coatings. Allow substrate to dry before applying Peel Away® Marine Strip. Protect and cover all areas, vegetation and surfaces not designated to be stripped including adjoining surfaces. Solvent resistant polyethylene sheets can be used as an effective barrier.  Wet down all vegetation and cover with Dumond® Catch-N-Cover™ or 6 mil solvent resistant polyethylene sheets.


Surface and Air Temperatures:  To avoid product from freezing and reducing effectiveness do not use below 35° degrees Fahrenheit. For best results, use product in temperatures above 50° degrees Fahrenheit and below 90° degrees Fahrenheit. Product effectiveness is increased in warmer temperatures.


Application & Spread Rate:  Dumond® Chemicals always recommends working in smaller manageable areas when striping unless you are working with many people, only strip what you can rinse before the remover dries, usually a 3’ X 3’ area. Using the enclosed putty knife of trowel apply paste approximately 1/8” – ¼” or according to successful test patch results. For 48-hour dwell time a minimum of ¼” inch is required. When applying onto irregular surfaces use nylon brush to force paste into intricate areas. Cover all paste with Dumond® Laminated Paper while being careful to lightly smooth out most air pockets. Product can dwell 12-48 hours if necessary. Peel Away® Marine Strip provides an average spread rate of approximately 20 Sq. Ft. per gallon; results may vary based on substrate texture and porosity and remover thickness.


Removal & Clean Up:  Remove by inserting a trowel, spatula, or other paint scrapping tool underneath paste and lift Dumond® Laminated Paper while slowly scrapping. Plastic tools are recommended when working on wood substrates.  After all paste has been removed, and while still wet, use a nylon brush or scotch brite pad and clean water to scrub residue off the substrate, paying attention to crevices, grooves, and cracks. Rinse thoroughly with water to remove all remaining residue. For optimal results, low pressure washing is recommended for final rinse when working outside. Remember, only strip what you can rinse before the remover dries, usually a 3’ X 3’ area.  Dispose of paper, paste remover and dissolved coatings according to federal, state and local regulations. For best results, wait until the surface is completely dry, at least 24-48 hours before neutralizing on porous substrates (wood and masonry). 


Waste Disposal:  When lead-based paint coatings are being removed from a substrate, disposal of the resulting waste is regulated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and many state and local agencies. Federal standards for classification, handling and disposal of potentially hazardous wastes are detailed in EPA’s Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) of 1976. Additional, more stringent regulations may be imposed by state and local regulatory authorities.


Neutralization:  Use Citri-Lize™ Neutralizer (included in kit) for neutralization process. Dumond® Chemicals recommends waiting until the surface is completely dry, or at least 24-48 hours before neutralizing porous surfaces (wood and masonry). Neutralizing is required when re-painting or re-staining after paint removal. Failure to properly clean and neutralize the surface as directed may result in alkaline burn that may cause hazing, flaking and/or subsequent coating failure.  Citri-Lize™ Neutralizer can be applied at any point after paint removal, however is most effective when applied to a dry substrate. Follow directions for water ratio on the back of the Citri-Lize™ bag and use plastic trigger or pump sprayer to thoroughly coat entire substrate. Allow substrate to dry, do not rinse.  When the surface is completely dry, test with enclosed pH test strips according to instructions on the Citri-Lize™ Neutralizer, repainting can occur when pH range is between a 5 and 8 and the moisture content is below 12%.


Re-Painting Wooden Surfaces:  For best results on wooden surfaces use a moisture meter before re-painting. Re-painting can occur when readings are 12% moisture or below. Dumond® Chemicals recommends the use of a premium 100% acrylic stain blocking primer on all wooden surfaces to minimize moisture problems including tannin staining, surfactant leeching and peeling. Cedar, redwood and cypress woods tend to bleed resin and/or tannic acids. Extra drying time may be required before painting these surfaces (up to as much as 60 days in some cases) otherwise staining may occur. If this occurs, spot prime those areas with a shellac-based or alkyd based stain killing primer.  Ask your local paint dealer for a premium primer that retards and seals in extractive bleeding and discoloration.


Best Practices: 



  • Always test each type of surface and paint coating for efficacy, dwell times and thickness. Let the Peel Away® Marine Strip dwell at least 12 hours before removing.

  • Never apply Peel Away® Marine Strip and leave it for 24-48 hours without checking on it

  • If product dries or hardens to the surface, remove the Dumond® Laminated Paper and apply a thick coat of Peel Away® Marine Strip on hardened area, re-apply Dumond® Laminated Paper and wait a minimum of 1 hour and remove.

  • Use straight white vinegar as a substitute for Citri-Lize™ neutralizer

  • Use butchers paper or freezer paper as a substitute for Dumond® Laminated Paper

  • Wood bleach (Oxalic acid) can be used on wooden surfaces (after Citri-Lize™ Neutralizer has been apply) to lighten substrate if necessary
