Application & Removal


Use a natural fibre brush to apply an even coat as thick as the amount of coatings you want to take off.


Maxistrip™ is made to be sprayed through our specially designed INDUS 20, available for hire or purchase from our distributors. This is the recommended way to apply Maxistrip for best results.


  • Scrape off with a tungsten carbide scraper.
    firm plastic spatula.
  • A stiff bristled nylon brush works at removing denatured coatings from deep crevasses.


If no lead is present a water blaster with INDUSTRIAL FELT to trap particulate residue also works. Water blasting can be effective but it is messy and requires care and skill to keep residue contained.
