Bio-Strip Seal n LockBio-​Strip– An Envi­ron­men­tally Friendly Strip­ping Agent

Seal ’n Lock Bio Strip strip­per is a novel blend of envi­ron­men­tally friendly com­pounds for­mu­lated into a non-​toxic, highly effec­tive paint strip­ping sys­tem. This unique prod­uct con­tains 15% bio-​renewable car­bon and its high load­ing capac­ity gives it the abil­ity to strip most sur­faces in one appli­ca­tion. It is an excel­lent alter­na­tive to haz­ardous, low flash point mate­ri­als, such as meth­yl­ene chlo­ride, NMP, and ace­tone; which are com­monly used for strip­ping applications.

All of Seal ‘n Lock’s prod­ucts are cre­ated to be envi­ron­men­tally friendly.


Per­for­mance Characteristics

  • Ideal for remov­ing acrylics, enam­els, epox­ies, lac­quers, latexes, moisture-​cured
    coat­ings and ure­thanes from most substrates.
  • High flash point
  • High load­ing capac­ity makes strip­per last longer.
  • Low evap­o­ra­tion rate allows for long strip­per on sub­strate dwell times and lower
    vol­ume use due to fewer reap­pli­ca­tions result­ing from sol­vent evap­o­ra­tion
    before the coat­ing is removed.
  • Will not harm alu­minum, com­pos­ites, con­crete, metal, steel or wood

Tox­i­co­log­i­cal & Envi­ron­men­tal Profile

  • Con­tains no car­cino­genic or toxic compounds
  • Con­tains no per­ox­ides, meth­yl­ene chlo­ride, NMP or other dan­ger­ous chemicals
  • Con­tains no ozone deplet­ing chem­i­cals, no haz­ardous air pol­lu­tants (HAPs) and no global
    warm­ing compounds
  • No SARA reportable components
  • Read­ily bio-​degradable
  • VOC com­pli­ant per EPA, AQMD, and CARB regulations

Appli­ca­tion and use

Because these prod­ucts are bio-​solvent blends they strip dif­fer­ently from indus­try stan­dard strip­pers like meth­yl­ene chlo­rine or NMP. Bio-​strippers need time to work as the strip­ping mech­a­nism is dif­fer­ent from petroleum-​based sol­vents. Bio-​solvents pen­e­trate paints and coat­ings and work by break­ing the bond between the coat­ing and the sub­strate, whereas petro­leum based sol­vents work by dis­solv­ing coat­ings. As a result it is impor­tant to give the bio-​stripper time to work. For 2part urethane/​epoxies and/​or thicker coat­ings, we rec­om­mend 2 Mils strip­ping to sub­strate fol­lowed by cov­er­ing the area with plas­tic sheet­ing for 12 hours,
then pres­sure wash­ing the strip­per from the sur­face. We believe in let­ting the chem­i­cals do the work.

Flat or ver­ti­cal sur­faces:
Apply 12 mils of strip­per to sub­strate.
Allow suf­fi­cient time to lift paint. Remove with a plas­tic paint
scraper. Typ­i­cally a dwell time of 45 to 60 min­utes is suf­fi­cient for a
water­borne 2 part ure­thanes and other coat­ings. Dwell times needed to remove
coat­ings are depen­dent on the coat­ing thick­ness, type and age as well as the
poros­ity of the sur­face. A sec­ond strip­per appli­ca­tion may be necessary.

Per­for­mance Data: The data below out­lines typ­i­cal per­for­mance for remov­ing var­i­ous types of coat­ings. Coat­ing time will vary depend­ing on coat­ing thick­ness, sur­face tem­per­a­ture, and other fac­tors. In some cases, two appli­ca­tions of Bio-​Strip may be necessary.

  • Acrylic coat­ing (12mils) Strip time = 20 to 30 minutes
  • Acrylic (12 mils) over elas­tomeric (8 mils) Strip time = 3 hours
  • Moisture-​cured epoxy Strip time = 10 to 20 minutes
  • 2 Part water­borne epoxy Strip time = 45 to 60 minutes
  • Oil & water stains, trans­par­ent or pig­mented Strip time = 20 to 30 minutes
  • Oil Based Enamel Strip time = 20 to 30 minutes
  • Polyurethane Strip time = 45 to 60 minutes
