S-100 Finish Remover is an environmentally friendly water-based solvent that removes many oil and water-borne finishes from logs, siding, and decks. Developed by Perma-Chink Systems using new technology originally developed for removing paint from aluminum aircraft surfaces. It works very well on penetrating oil based finishes like Woodguard and X-100 finishes. S-100 Finish Remover is a ready-to-use gel, it is easily applied with a short bristled brush, paint roller, or airless sprayer. Within a few minutes it begins to soften the finish and since it is a gel, it stays wet and active for a fairly long period of time. Do not allow to dry on the wood surface. Once the finish has sufficiently softened, it can be removed by simply pressure washing.
Unlike sodium or potassium hydroxide strippers, S-100 will not darken or discolor the wood, corrode or discolor metal surfaces, nor will it harm log home chinking or sealants. Although it is effective for removing most log home finishes, there are some high performance coatings such as Sikkens that require a more aggressive stripper like Smart Strip. Made in the USA.
