PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICS:

We are not aware of any companies sealer coating, of any type including epoxies, that "Premium Stripper" cannot remove - it is that powerful and versatile.

  • If there were a sealer that "Premium Stripper" could not remove, there would be nothing left to try but sanding.
  • Concentrated strength solvents in a semi-gel base.
  • Removes any waxes, cleaner residues, etc. at the same time as removing the sealer.
  • Removes sealer coatings ( and graffiti ) from all the surface types on our web pages - ceramic tile, Mexican and terracotta tiles, stone, brick, concrete block, etc. - floors or walls
ITEMS OF INTEREST:
  • There is nothing stronger or faster on the market
  • A controllable semi-gel that won't run into unwanted areas. An important feature for graffiti removal.
  • Odors are suppressed
  • As it is removing a sealer, it also cleans old stains and dirt. Many times it will remove stains where nothing else was able to work.
  • Economical due to working ingredients being held at the surface and not immediately drying out
  • Ideal for graffiti removal for all the same reasons that it works so well on floor coatings, including minimal running down the wall.

  • All strippers, including "Premium Stripper" do not remove what is below the surface, therefore, test with water drops when finished to determine floors ability to allow sealer penetration. If the floor (including grout joints) beads water you do not need any more sealer. Just use "Lifeguard" on this still nonabsorbent surface.
  • Premium Stripper should remove any sealer that has created a coating on top.  Some thicker, tougher sealers will require multiple and heavier applications of stripper.
  • Premium Stripper removes water base and petroleum solvent base sealers.
  • Each application needs to be tested with Premium Stripper to confirm.
  • If removing an Aldon sealer (and that should never be necessary) - see sealer product page to determine the sealer type. Also see the sealer label for any special considerations.
  • See the "Premium Stripper" label reproduction below for all the information on surface preparation, application technique, drying time, etc. This label reproduction will always be the most current. Because we are constantly improving information and passing on tips from users, this could be more up to date than the label on the container.
We are frequently asked about potential clean up shortcuts not described on the label. To a large extent you can do whatever works for you, but here are some considerations:
  • Power washing: this has the potential to move strong chemicals into risky areas such as vegetation, pet areas, etc. Generally, it is not a good idea unless extremely well controlled and still requires removal of those strong chemicals.
  • Wet/dry vacuuming: this is a technique frequently used on large projects. However, be sure the wet/dry vacuum is either an economically disposable part of the project, or it does not contain rubber or plastic components that will be melted by the chemicals.

TROUBLESHOOTING:

If you do not see the results you expect:

It is not a problem with the product! (They all do what we say they do!)

  1. Your conditions may have been misdiagnosed! (It can happen, even with all the information we provide.)
  2. The surface conditions (absorption rate, contaminents, temperatures, etc.) are other than thought.
  3. And/or - it was not applied per label instructions! (The instructions are designed to overcome items 1 and 2 above, and overcome job conditions of which you might not be aware.)

When you read all the health and safety warnings, you will see we have done our best to make you think about working with any chemicals from any manufacturer. Even household cleaners purchased in supermarkets (many with more hazardous ingredients than we use due to cost factors) should be used with common sense and awareness. People have been injured by not knowing you can create poisonous gases by mixing chlorine bleach with some cleaning products. One of the many criteria involved in Aldon products is that all our products will be used with any other of our products and no normal combination of usage events should be hazardous. Nevertheless, use common sense and don't be in a hurry. Let each step prove itself satisfactorily before proceeding to the next.
