Usage Summary
Preparation
  • 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 40-90˚F (4.5-32˚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). 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 color 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.

BEHR PREMIUM® Wood Stain & Finish Stripper is rated 1.9 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nasty Stuff with Below Bar Performance After applying a Behr transparent deck finish to our new deck 2 years ago with a reapplication last year, we realized was subpar and began to peel within 3 months of application. We finally decided to use Behr Wood Stain & Finish Stripper to strip the deck and start over with an oil based deck finish. There is nothing about this product that is easy and even with considerable hard work the effectiveness is way suspect. We applied the product according to instructions and left it on for 30+ minutes. We then had to brush aggressively several times during the rinsing process to get about 70-75% of the old finish to budge. We also used a plastic paint scrapper to try to remove the stubborn spots, still with less than satisfactory success. Following complete rinsing of the nasty, toxic stripper, we rented a drum sander to remove the numerous old finish spots on the deck. This was followed by sanding under our metal deck railing with a orbital sander and good ole elbow grease hand sanding. The final step was applying the Behr Premium All-In-One Wood Cleaner (another nasty, toxic product) that appeared to work satisfactorily. So after 3 long days of removing the existing finish and preparing the deck, we were finally ready for applying a new coat of transparent oil-based deck finish (not a Behr product this time!). The moral of this drawn out story is that we should have just rented the drum sander in the first place and forgotten about using the stripper and wasting our valuable time and effort! Never More!!!
