Solvent strippers remove paint by dissolving or softening the bond between the film and substrate, causing the coating to bubble up. The most common solvent is methylene chloride (also called dichloromethane), but alcohol, toluene, acetone, and ketones are often also present. Methylene chloride-based strippers work very well.
For some strippers, it also helps to lay sheets of plastic wrap over the wet stripper. This prevents rapid evaporation of the solvent, and helps speed up the chemical process. Tip: To make it easier to remove the paint or varnish once the chemical has had a chance to soften it, sprinkle sawdust on the wet stripper.Author: DIY Network.
