Test Patch:

Before general use, test on a small area to determine compatibility, required dwell time, and coverage
for desired results. For an estimated 5 or less coats, scrape a section of the area with a stripping tool
after one hour of dwell time. If not easily down to wood after one hour, leave on longer and test again
hourly. For 10 – 15 coats of paint, cover with plastic and wait 24 hours to test. For best results, cover the
stripper with plastic and do not allow to dry.

  1. Shake well before use. Protect all areas not being stripped with plastic sheeting. Rubber gloves
    and safety glasses are recommended for eye and skin protection.
  2. Pour into a container and apply with a brush, roller (best applied with a 1 1/4” nap roller), or airless sprayer. Apply liberally - the stripper should cover the color of the stain. For best results and extended dwell times, cover stripper with plastic. Do not let stripper dry out, mist with water if you notice any dry areas. Refer to test area on dwell time before stripping. Test stripping a small area to ensure you are down to the substrate. If not, leave R-A-D™ PaintStrip on and let it do its job. R-A-D™ PaintStrip may or may not bubble. This will depend on the type of paint or sealer being removed. One gallon covers approximately 50-100 sq. ft. Best results are achieved when R-A-D PaintStrip is applied at temperatures between 60F and 80F.
  3. For best results, agitate with a stiff bristle brush and then remove by either scraping or pressure
    washing. Always pressure wash at an angle so that the water jet acts as a chisel.
  4. Let surface dry completely before refinishing. Clean all tools with soap and water.
  5. Dispose of paint or sealer waste in accordance with local, State, and Federal regulations.


R-A-D™ PaintStrip covers approximately 50-100 square feet per gallon of product. Coverage will vary on application method and substrate.

    I used RAD wood stripper and power washed the deck. Do I need to apply anything else before staining? Which satin product would you recommend?

    How long does it take for the RAD stain Remover to take off 2 to 3 layers of solid deck paint.  Can I leave it on for 12 hours, won't it dry out? Or should I reapply after minitial layer come off.  Thanks, Lisa

      1+ hours. You can test if it is working fully down to the bare wood with some mild scraping prior to pressure washing off. You can leave it on for up to 24 hours.
