Latex Paint vesus Oil Paint

Q: How do I know if my paint is Latex paint and not Oil Paint?

A: There are a number of ways to determine if your paint is latex or oil based. Take denatured alcohol or Liquid Sandpaper and rub it on latex and some paint will be removed and the surface will get tacky/sticky -- but on oil it won't take off paint or get tacky. Also, latex paint will mark easily with a silver coin, oil paint will be harder to mark. Latex paint will soften with a solvent like lacquer thinner or Goof Offas well. Latex paint will probably not be as smooth; brush marks or roller stipple will be more evident. Latex paint may scratch off easier or even chip off, it will also soften in high humidity.

If you are planning to repaint and the initial coat of paint is oil based, you can use Peel Away® 1. Be sure to use Peel Away® Neutralizer after you are done so that the next coat of paint will adhere properly.

Lead/Oil Based Paint

Peel Away® 1 will remove lead/oil based paint from the following: Plaster, concrete, brass, copper, brick, steel, cast iron, fiberglass, stucco, wood, marble, T-111 siding.

After using the Peel Away® 1, you have to neutralize the surface. Peel Away® 7 will remove lead/oil based paint from wood, brick, stone, plaster, metal, fiberglass, graphite and steel. If you are removing lead/oil based paint from wood and want to keep the wood it's natural color without harming the wood, Peel Away® 7 or Smart Strip® is the product to use.

It is especially suited for removal of lead based paints and restoration of old historic buildings. Do not use on wood unless you are repainting the surface. You must neutralize when using the Peel Away® 1. Can't be used on drywall or aluminum.

Peel Away® 1 is a paste that is spread on the surface, then covered with the Peel Away® Paper to control evaporation, after your pre-determined dwell time, the paper is then removed with the bulk of the paste and paint by using a putty knife or trowel to lift the paint, paste and paper. You must then wash and neutralize the surface. Failure to properly clean and neutralize the surface will result in an alkaline residue that may cause an unsightly white haze. The alkaline residue may also interfere with the performance of clear sealers or future paint coatings. Let the surface dry for 24 hours before neutralizing, both interior and exterior.
