New Product is Methylene Chloride-Free

paint stripperWe are pleased to announce that our brand-new paint stripper, Sonic Strip is now available. Sonic Strip is specifically formulated to contain zero amounts of the chemical methylene chloride, so often found within products in the refinishing and coatings industry. This new, solvent-based paint stripper is both safe and effective. 

Sonic Strip, developed primarily for use on ceramic surfaces such as tubs, tile, showers, and sinks, can also be applied to other substrates. The stripper is formulated with strong vertical cling, so it will easily remain on any surface upon which it is brushed or poured. After 10 to 15 minutes of processing time, the stripper can be chipped with a razor in order to strip the film from the substrate. For ease of use, there is a humectant built into the stripper to prevent it from drying. A lighter coat may need to be applied if it has been sitting for many hours.

“We are very excited to be able to offer the product to our customers,” said Steve Coven, CEO of NAPCO. “This is a product that we have been working on for quite some time. The safety of our customers and their clients is of the utmost importance to us. With this methylene chloride-free paint stripper, our refinishers can be confident that they are safe to carry out the work their clients need.” 

In addition to the benefits listed above, our new paint stripper makes for an easy clean-up! Sonic Strip will lift the film up from the substrate and keeps it more intact, ensuring that it comes off in large sheets instead of small chips. 

As an industry leader, we will continue to formulate low-VOC products to ensure of the safety of their refinishers and their clients. Offering more products that are methylene chloride-free is a goal we continue to work toward as a company.
