Injectable Safe-Strip provides never before technology by allowing a deck/wood stripper to be injected by a pressure washer at up to 1,000 square feet per concentrated gallon! Use 100% Biodegradable Safe-Strip to remove unwanted sealers or semi-transparent stains. Safe Strip revitalizes wood while preparing it for any type of re-coating. Be assured that Injectable Safe-Strip will not harm pets, vegetation, shrubs, and flowers.

INJECTABLE SAFE-STRIP PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

  • New application technology allowing pressure washer injection
  • Removes oil-based and water-based semi-transparent stains and sealers
  • Restores weathered wood to natural color
  • 100% biodegradable - will not harm plants or pets
  • Does not contain chlorine bleach that may damage wood fibers
  • Use on all exterior wood surfaces including decks, fences, and fascia

Surface Preparation:

Injecting:

1. Put injector hose into undiluted Injectable Safe-Strip container. Inject desired working area (200-300 sq. ft. recommended). Injector ratio 12:1 or lower.

2. Although Injectable Safe-Strip has little or no dwell time, 5 minutes of product working time is recommended. Pressure wash, working area thoroughly.

Ready-to-use:

1. Pour Injectable Safe-Strip into container. Add 4 parts water (1 gallon makes 5 gallons, 5 gallons makes 25 gallons). Apply liberally to wood surfaces. Best application results are with a Deck Sprayer. After application, always keep working area moist during surface preparation.

2. Once applied you may begin to scrub (NO SCRUBBING NECESSARY WITH USE OF PRESSURE WASHER). When scrubbing applied area, use synthetic, stiff bristle brush; do not use a wire or natural bristle brush.

3. Rinse thoroughly with hose or pressure washer. A pressure washer will show the best results.

* Use caution when using Safe Strip. Wet surfaces will be slippery.

Coverage Rate: Approximately 500-1000 square feet per gallon.

RE: Safe Strip 1 Gallon
Quoting humphriesjm:
I ordered (3) single gallons before but after this weekend of stain removal, I found that I need more of it. I thought I could use it as an injectable product but my pressure washer only does 20:1 and not 12:1 as your instructions suggest. So I am spraying it on using a manual pump sprayer and then letting it soak for about 10 minutes. I then power wash the fence to get the stain off. It seems to work very well. Your website only shows that it comes in 1 gallon containers. Does it also come in 5 gallon containers? I have a lot of fence and a large patio cover. All of it is cedar. Would I also need the brightener product after using this Safe Strip product? Thanks in advance for your reply.

Hello, the Safe Strip only comes in gallon sizes. Using a wood brightener would be beneficial for the final appearance.

We used Helmsman spar urethane water based clear finish on the exterior of our barn. It is now peeling after only 1 year. I want to use the oil based TWP and want to strip off the urethane finish. Will the Gemini stripper remove the water based urethane?

No, it will not. You will have to sand it off.

we stained our hose using twp semi transperant stain . it started to darken and change color. what caused this. we bleached and stripped down to wood using pressure washer. we want to use again the twp brand again. it has stayed on for 12 years , pleased with how it lasted except for color change

TWP does not darken on its own so there had to have been an outside contaminant that caused this. Mold feeding on pollen dust, excess dirt in air, etc. A lightly clean to remove dirt would help every year or so.

I have a large home with cedar siding on it. We put a clear coat of a varnish like material on it and peeled a lot within a couple of years. I have used a sodium percarbonate product to clean and strip it. Worked pretty good but is not taking it off completely. What do you suggest? My hope is to get it off and then finish with a TWP stain.

Stain strippers will not remove a varnish like product. Corn cob blasting is probably your best option.

You cannot apply TWP over the SW so you will need to remove it. This can be done by stripping and you may need to sand as well. After you will need to brighten the wood. Use Restore A Deck Stripper and Brightener.

22 x 14 deck pressure treated 2 x 6 with Behr Semi Transparent Latex 3 years old. 300 square feet Vs. the suggest coverage of 500 to 1000 square feet.

Safe Strip failed to remove the majority. I used 1 gallon on the deck applied with pump sprayer followed with pressure washer (2500 PSI). I allowed the 5 minute then gradually longer dwell times to no benefit. I reduce the dilution gradually as I went to attain better results.

The pressure washer did the majority of the work - there are areas that Safe Strip was totally ineffective at making any progress.

I'll be using a drum sander now to remove the balance.

I like the TWP stain - but this product was a complete loss in terms of money and time.

The issue is the Behr stain you are trying to remove not the stripper.

I power-washed and applied Australian Cabot oil to the deck on the home I just bought last year. I had to replace some of the wolmanized boards that were cracked and warped. The deck looked like it hadn't been done in years - very dry and gray and green-mossy in some areas too. It appeared that I had gotten all the gray and green off after power washing and it looked nice after appling the Australian Oil. Now the wood looks dry, gray and green in some areas again. This deck gets full sun all day long. Your products are highly rated, what can you suggest to get my deck back in shape so I hopefully won't have to replace it and hopefully won't have to re-do the stain annually? I would also like to be environmentally -friendly if possible.

I have a deck that (I believe) was treated with Woodsman semi-transparen t oil deck stain. I have an empty can the previous homeowner left that appears to be the same color as the deck, so I assume that\'s what it is. However, it\'s more paint-like than stain-like (it was color matched to the house) and while it says oil deck stain, parts of it are peeling like a paint, leaving gray wood underneath. So I\'m not really sure what\'s on the deck.

Anyway, from your previous responses, I was going to purchase your Solid Strip to deal with this, but I can\'t find Solid Strip on your website. Is that product still available? If not, can you recommend something that would adequately prepare the deck for your TWP 100 series?

Thanks much!

re:Restore-A-De ck or Safe Strip ??
Neither will remove the Behr. The Restore-A-Deck is a cleaner and the Safe Strip will not remove the Behr. The Behr must be removed as TWP cannot be applied on top.

This would be your best choice:

Restore-A-Deck or Safe Strip ??
Hi, I have a stained deck that is not in very bad shape.
I stained with Behr products 2 years ago, it\'s starting to peel off in some areas, but most of the deck is still in quite good condition.

Wha t would you recommend to prep the deck for TWP-1500 application??
S afe Strip, or the Restore-A-Deck product?? Or both??

Thanks,
John.
