STEP 1   PREPARE

Before Applying

Because of the variations in coatings to be stripped, it is vital to test CUTEK® Wood Stripper BEFORE starting your project. This will help you determine how much time you will need to leave CUTEK® Wood Stripper on your wood and how much product you will need for the job.

NOTE: CUTEK® Wood Stripper may need to be applied more than once to thick paint or film form coatings with many layers.

Safety and precautions

Before you begin to Prepare and Protect your wood, note the hazards and precautions and ensure that you have obtained and know how to use the correct safety equipment as detailed in the Safety Data Sheet.

When using CUTEK® Wood Stripper, all adjacent surfaces and vegetation must be adequately protected. It is also important to be aware of the potential for wind drift into areas with cars or pedestrian traffic when rinsing. Water flush all equipment, vegetation, paths, concrete, asphalt and other adjacent surfaces before and after contact.

Coverage

Spreading rate of CUTEK® Wood Stripper is approximately 120 sq.ft./gallon.

NOTE: this can vary significantly depending on the type and thickness of the paint or wood coating being removed.

Application

Apply CUTEK® Wood Stripper evenly with a brush, roller or paint pad applicator to dry wood, rubbing into the grain. Reaction time is approx. 30-60 minutes. Keep area wet and activated by applying more CUTEK® Wood Stripper or by agitating the application area with a brush, roller or paint pad applicator.  CUTEK® Wood Stripper makes surfaces slippery so DO NOT walk on the application area until CUTEK® Wood Stripper has been removed.

Test periodically with a paint scraper to determine when the old coat is stripping cleanly off the wood. When this happens, the stripped surface is ready for rinsing. We suggest that you try to strip only 10 square feet first to perfect your technique.

Removal

Once CUTEK® Wood Stripper has loosened the coating, rinse off thoroughly, using a pressure washer set to approximately 50 bar (750 p.s.i.) with a fan jet pattern. REMOVAL WITH A GARDEN HOSE IS NOT SUFFICIENT.
CAUTION must be used to avoid damage to the wood fiber and ‘furring up’. Adjust your cleaning process by reducing the pressure or your operating distance from the wood. DO NOT use “turbojets” on wood.

Clean from the lowest point and work upwards methodically using long even strokes in the direction of the grain. If cleaned from the highest point first, the product below can become sticky and difficult to remove.

After stripping the wood, clean it with CUTEK® Wood Reviver to remove residual CUTEK® Wood Stripper and rejuvenate the substrate and enhance the grain. See CUTEK® Wood Reviver for instructions.

Certain types of wood surfaces may leave a raised grain effect after stripping is completed. Sanding or poly pad scrubbing may be required to smooth out this condition.

Clean Up & Disposal

Equipment may be cleaned with CUTEK® Quickclean or soap/detergent and water. All wash water, containers/contents should be disposed in accordance with local regulations

PROTECT WITH CUTEK® EXTREME

Following the removal of paint or wood coating, revive your wood with CUTEK® Wood Reviver and complete the restoration process by protecting your wood with CUTEK® Extreme.

Designed for and proven to work in the harshest of American environments, CUTEK® Extreme penetrates and diffuses deeply into the wood core to protect against liquid and gas phase moisture and extend service life.

CUTEK® Extreme

  • High performance penetrating oil-based wood stabilizer with a unique self-healing effect that highlights the natural beauty of wood and controls moisture to improve dimensional stability and minimize cupping, warping and splitting.

Maintenance with CUTEK® Extreme is simple, easy and cost effective. Simply clean and recoat – no need to sand or strip.

Not protecting your wood with CUTEK® Extreme after cleaning will result in water damage and a faster weathering/graying process when exposed to the weather.

  • What steps should I follow when removing an existing coating?

    CUTEK® Extreme must be applied to bare, clean and dry wood. This allows the oil to freely penetrate/diffuse into your wood. Wood previously coated with a film forming product such as stains, linseed oil, paint, polyurethane, water-based oils, etc. can inhibit this penetration/diffusion and must be removed using the following steps:

    1. Remove the previous coating using CUTEK® Wood Stripper. It is safe, user-friendly and is suitable to remove multiple layers of most commonly used wood coatings.
    2. Restore the color and enhance the grain with CUTEK® Wood Reviver. CUTEK® Wood Reviver will bring weathered and stained wood back to life.

    After removing the previous coating, it is important to protect your exterior wood with CUTEK® Extreme to repel and displace moisture, and extend service life.
