STRIPPING paint from radiators can be a notoriously tricky job.

Usually this is because radiators  have two coats of paint. These are a water-based electrocoat primer and a fusion-bonded, powder paint topcoat.

The most difficult layer of these to remove tends to be the water-based primer. This is because most traditional solvent-based paint strippers will not attack modern water-based paints.

How to remove paint from radiators with Biostrip - in just twenty minutes

Method One - in the home

Simply grab a clean brush, and paint the radiator with Biostrip. Be sure to also paint inside all those tricky corners and creases. After around 20 minutes, you will  see that the paint has begun to blister or soften. Leave the Biostrip in situ for a little longer. You should then be able to  easily scrape off the blistered or softened paint. On doing this, you will see that the Biostrip has penetrated both layers of paint. Scraping will reveal a clean, paint-free radiator; stripped back to its original, pre-painted state.

All that remains is to wash the radiator thoroughly with mild soapy water, then give it a final rinse with water only.

 

Method Two - for industry

An even easier method (although not suitable for home stripping) to remove  the paint from the radiator is to dip it in a tank of Biostrip. Heat to around 30C and  leave for thirty minutes, then simply wash off with a power washer using fresh water.
