Surface Preparation: Ensure that the surface to be stripped is clean & dry before beginning. Always test each type of surface and paint coating for suitability, dwell times, and thickness. Protect and cover all areas from drips, runs or overspray such as vegetation and other surfaces not designated to be stripped.

Surface & Air Temperatures: To avoid product from freezing and reducing effectiveness do not use below 2°C. For best results, use product at temperatures above 15°C degrees and below 35°C. Product effectiveness is increased in warmer temperatures however product dry out faster in warmer weather so wrapping in plastic film such as cling wrap or pallet shrink wrapping is recommended.

Able ECOSTRIP provides an average coverage rate of 1L per square meter. Results may vary based on substrate texture & porosity and 1L per m3 is an approximation.

Applying: Stir product before use and use as received (recommended) or dilute with up to 20%v/v with potable water for spray applications (i.e. add up to 1 part water to 5 parts ECOSTRIP). If you are diluting the product ensure to mix the water in well before applying with a stirrer. Apply product using a trowel, brush, roller or airless paint sprayer. Apply the Gel at a thickness no less than 3mm. For heavy duty stripping (ie polyurethanes & epoxies) which may take between 3 to 24 hours dwell time we recommend a 6mm application of the product and a “film wrap.” When applying the stripper onto rough surfaces we recommend using a nylon brush to force paste into recessed areas. To work; allow the product to dwell on the surface at the recommended thickness from between 10 minutes & 24 hours if necessary. Product stripping times vary greatly according to the material to be removed. For stripping applications that require more than 15 minutes of dwell time it is essential that the applied product (either 3mm or 6mm) be completely covered with a thin plastic film such as “kitchen film (ie glad wrap),” “pallet wrapping film,” or “rubbish bags” to keep the product from drying out. Apply the film gently so as to not disturb the paste and secure it with tape.

Spray Application: Able ECOSTRIP may be sprayed with an airless paint sprayer. Use neat or dilute 5:1 with water (ie 5L of Able ECOSTRIP + 1L of water). The sprayer pumps output should be at least 3 litres per minute and all gun and manifold filters should be removed prior to spraying to avoid blockages. Hose size should be at least new 1/4” ID. It highly recommended to use a new hose as old paint in the lines will dislodge and cause clogs during application. Keep a clean bucket of water on hand, as an occasional flush of the pump may be necessary on hot days to alleviate clogs and the pumps inability to build up pressure. Do not leave the product in the sprayer or spray lines overnight. Flush the sprayer and hose thoroughly each day and upon completion with warm water and dish liquid.

Removal & Clean Up: Once Able ECOSTRIP has worked (ie jellied / wrinkled / dissolved or softened the coating) the resulting paste paint can be removed with a pressure washer or plastic scraper. After all paste has been removed, immediately use a plastic brush and clean water to scrub residue off the surface. Rinse the surface thoroughly with water to remove all remaining residue. Dispose of dissolved coatings and plastic films according to local regulations.

Limitations: No usually recommended vinyl, laminates or rubber.

Test Patch: Always perform a small test patch in an inconspicuous area prior to full application. Test patches are the safest and easiest way determine the proper dwell time and thickness to apply the product for you specific application. Failure to do a test patch can result in need for more than one application, increasing labour and costs.


  • Always test each type of surface and paint coating for suitability, dwell times, and thickness.
  • Let Able ECOSTRIP dwell for at least 5 minute to 24 hours before attempting to remove; you will see if it has worked as surface will wrinkle and become soft. 
  • Never apply and leave it for 24 hours without checking on it.
  • Consider Wrapping Gel coated surfaces with plastic film to stop the product from drying out and to improved economy and speed of stripping.
  • If product dries or hardens to surface, apply a thin coat of Able ECOSTRIP over hardened area and wait ~30 minutes the remove and clean up.

RISK: Irritating to eyes and skin

SAFETY: Keep out of reach of children. Do not drink. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre on 13 11 26. Wear suitable gloves and eye/face protection.

SPILLS & LEAKS: Contain spilled material. Absorb onto inert material such as earth. Collect and seal in properly labelled drums for disposal. Wash area down with excess water. Small spills may be diluted and washed to drain with plenty of water. .
