"EcoClean VpCI-434G” and "VpCI-434L” are biodegradable, non-corrosive, low-toxicity, eco-friendly paint and graffiti strippers that were designed for a wide range of industrial paint removal applications, as well as being an efficient gasket remover. Both products were formulated using benzyl alcohol to replace toxic methylene chloride type paint removers which are now banned.

Using wetting agents to penetrate into coatings

"EcoClean VpCI-434G” is formulated to be a smooth flowing gel that provides vertical cling to surfaces for stripping projects and "EcoClean VpCI-434L” is a liquid solution. The strippers use special wetting agents to penetrate deep into coatings, breaking them down and softening for easy removal of inks, acrylics, 2k and 1k urethanes, alkyds, lacquers, varnishes, and adhesives.

Both products are effective on metal tanks, metal pipes, spray booths, structural supports, spray equipment, machine tools, workbenches, pipes, railcars, vehicles, airplanes, buildings, floors, stairways, pavements, road surfaces, etc. The stripping time varies, depending on the type and number of layers to be removed. The surface should be thoroughly washed with an aqueous cleaner to prevent any contamination of applied coating.
