Paint stripper

Post by joferno »

I have a Griffon 2 which has at least six coats of paint on the deck and roof. The paint is non slip, probably Interdeck. apart from mechanical removal, does anyone know of a stripper I can use. The previous owner was not too careful when applying the paint and deck fittings are also partly coated with at least one coat. Help!

Be VERY careful with paint stripper as most of it will react with the resin and you will end up with problems. Having said that there are some that are OK to use on resin but you do need to take care. Can't think off hand of any good names I'm afraid.

I think that Caustic based ones will be OK on GRP.

Nitromors, solvent based ones ( dichloromethane/methanol) may not be, but I have not seen any scientific evidence to back this up, what does it say on the tin?

It was Nitromors that I was thinking about. It softened the resin around a bit of the tabbing on the chainlocker bulkhead. Only a small area before Irene realised that something was amiss and neutralised it. The tabbing has since been redone using epoxy. The Nitromors was the old stuff that worked before the H&S people killed it off.

I used Peal-away to remove my anti fouling, it's water based and is ok for fibreglass, great product should be good to use on decks.
Saying that I used a Bosch scraper for my decks

Thanks for the info Bert. My wife got some of that for something or other in the house so I will bear it on mind.
