The original, authentic Peel Away® range is now available exclusively through Barrettine Products Ltd and approved Trade stockists.
The Peel Away® paint removal system is designed for the complete removal of accumulated layers of paint with up to 32 coats of paint removed in one application. Use will not damage profiles or other surfaces where multi-layers of paint are removed. Peel Away® is available in two different formulations; Peel Away® 1 and Peel Away® 7. Both are Methylene Chloride free (Dichloromethane).
The Peel Away® poultice paint removal system was first developed in 1981 to deal effectively with the problems associated with the removal of multiple layers of old lead-based paint, where burning, scraping or sanding would allow lead particles to escape into the environment with the associated health risks caused by such practices. The stripping compound is formulated to turn the lead into lead hydroxide within the paste, so that it can be safely disposed of without endangering the environment or user.
The system is designed to work with the special Peel Away® poultice cover supplied which allows the user to extend the time available so the stripping process can be as complete as possible. This is especially useful where crevices and profiles have allowed the build-up of several times the thickness of the paint compared to flat surfaces.
The system will remove paint from many exterior and interior architectural surfaces, including stone, cement, brickwork, plaster walls and ceilings, plain and ornate fibrous plaster cornices, plain and carved or turned woodwork, plain and cast metal work. Automobile, aircraft and marine coatings are also efficiently stripped with the Peel Away® system.
The Peel Away® poultice paint removal system has been used for very many high profile restoration projects all over the world. In the UK these have included railings and interiors at The British Museum, ornate plaster ceilings at Greenwich Palace, ironwork on the London Underground and delicate panelling at the Victoria and Albert Museum. The system is frequently specified by architects as the only appropriate solution for paint removal, where damage to the surface or risk to the environment is an issue. The chemicals used within the stripping pastes are carefully chosen to minimise fumes and odours and are biodegradable and environmentally friendly.
