Usage Summary
  • Pour BEHR PREMIUM CONCRETE & MASONRY PAINT STRIPPER N0. 992 into a paint tray or bucket. If water seems to have separated out, stir product until uniform.
  • For vertical and glossy or greasy surfaces, scuff sand the surface lightly with a medium grit sand paper prior to application to prevent sagging of paint stripper.
  • Test Patch: A test area will indicate the time required to lift coating and the suitability of the product for the paint and substrate.
  • Protect grass and any nearby plants by dampening these areas with water and covering with plastic drop cloths.
  • Prevent all rinse solution from entering storm drains.
  • Use product when air and surface temperatures are between 10-32°C.
  • Wear protective clothing, goggles and acid resistant rubber gloves and boots. Use a NIOSH approved air purifying respirator with an organic vapour cartridge.
  • Apply a thick layer of stripper onto the surface using a paintbrush or a stiff bristle broom to spread evenly. Completely cover original coated surface.
  • Spread rate is approximately 6-7 m2
  • Penetration varies according to coating type, thickness and temperature. COATING WILL WRINKLE WHEN THE JOB IS DONE. Most coatings will take between 1 – 6 hours to lift.
  • Cheque periodically during the waiting period, to ensure that the coating is completely covered with the stripper. If the coated surface becomes visible again, re-apply a light coating.
  • The stripper should remain wet and active until the coating wrinkles. If hot or windy conditions cause drying, re-apply a light coating.
  • Use a scraper, squeegee or pressure washer to remove all coating and residue.
  • The stripper is formulated to remove several layers of coating in one application. Some areas however, may require an additional application to remove all layers.
  • The stripped surface must be rinsed with water thoroughly to remove all chemical residues before recoating.
  • Allow surface to dry completely before recoating.
  • In case of contact with painted or finished surfaces, rinse immediately with fresh water. Product will damage automobile finishes.
  • Properly dispose of old coating.
  • To recycle or properly dispose of product in your community, contact your household refuse collection service.
