Crown Paint and Varnish Remover is designed to strip old, loose and wrinkling paint and varnish. When used correctly it will remove all types of oil-based paints such as gloss and eggshell enamels, undercoats, primers etc in addition to Nitrocelloluse and a number of industrial finishes. Crown Paint and Varnish Remover can also be used on water-based paints. Its efficacy will be greatly reduced when used to remove old coatings, Stoving and 2-pack paints, where more than one coat may be required in sound condition.
Crown Paint and Varnish Remover is non-inflammable, is entirely free from caustic or alkali and, when used on timber, will not injure the grain. It should, however, be used with care especially in confined spaces, and kept away from naked flames or red-hot surfaces which would cause acidic fumes, unpleasant to inhale.
Apply the paint remover generously with an ordinary brush, avoiding unnecessary splashing of the skin or other surfaces. Leave for at least 15 minutes then remove the paint with a scraper or shave hook. When removing several coats of paint, additional applications may be necessary. The paint remover will continue to be active for a considerable time after application.
After all paint has been stripped, the surface should be wiped clean with Crown White Spirit and then allowed to dry thoroughly before overcoating.
Avoid contact with skin. Shake the tin well before use and open carefully, away from the face. Store in a cool place, away from light, out of reach of children and animals.
