Preparation

The following steps and products are recommended for best results.

  • Removes loose wood fibers without sanding. Not for interior use or on aluminum surfaces. May harm bare metal or painted surfaces.
  • Be sure to have a source for water, hose with nozzle and stiff bristle broom or brush and a product such as BEHR PREMIUM® NO. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner.
  • DO NOT THIN PRODUCT. Do not apply in direct sunlight or on hot surfaces. Dampen nearby foliage with water and cover with plastic drop cloths.
  • Wear protective clothing, goggles, acid resistant gloves, and NIOSH approved Respirator
  • Conduct a small test patch in an inconspicuous area to ensure product performance.
  • Prevent all rinse solution from entering storm drains.

Application

  • Must apply between 5-32˚ C.
  • Pour BEHR Premium NO. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper directly onto surface and apply liberally using a nylon/poly brush or roller.
  • Natural bristle brushes or lambs wool applicators are not recommended.
  • Due to product thickness, DO NOT use pump, paint or other sprayers. Product will clog tip, resulting in leaking and dripping.
  • Always keep surface wet by misting with water and re-apply NO. 64 if drying occurs.
  • Finish will begin to lift from the surface.
  • Repeat process as needed to keep the surface wet during the removal period.
  • Most deteriorated finishes will start to lift after about 5-45 minutes.
  • The coating should easily rinse off when ready.
  • When the finish starts to lift, scrub the surface using a stiff bristle broom or brush.
  • Rinse thoroughly with water from garden hose using nozzle at normal pressure, or use a pressure washer at a low setting (500-1200 PSI or 35-84 kg/cm2).
  • DO NOT USE HIGH PRESSURE as this may harm the wood. If some of the old finish remains on the surface, repeat application procedure or spot sand as needed.
  • Follow up with a product such as BEHR Premium NO. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner to remove stains, rejuvenate natural wood colour and to neutralize the stripping action.

Dry Time

  • Surfaces must be thoroughly dry before applying any type of new finish, except those finishes that can be applied to dampened wood. Allow the wood to dry for a minimum of 24 hours in warm, dry weather.

Disposal

  • Biodegradable. Properly dispose of all soiled rags. To recycle or properly dispose of paint in your community, contact your household refuse collection service. PROTECT FROM FREEZING.
