As many know, stripping paint is not an easy job. And as those of us in the bath and kitchen refinishing industry are well-aware, picking the right paint stripper can be an even harder task.

There are many factors that go into choosing the right paint stripper for your refinishing business:
- How long does it take to start working?
- How many layers of paint can the solvent remove?
- Can it work on a vertical surface?
- Does it work on fiberglass?

NAPCO Sonic Strip paint stripper

Then there’s the element of safety. It’s no secret that today’s consumers are looking for eco-friendly and healthy solutions in their homes. Additionally, now that most methylene-chloride strippers have been pulled from store shelves, refinishers are looking for an effective product that is also safer to use.

This is why NAPCO has developed Sonic Strip, a brand-new, federally VOC compliant, methylene chloride free paint stripper. It’s scientifically formulated for efficient and effective removal of acrylics, urethanes, modern epoxies, enamels, lacquers, and most other coatings without the use of methylene chloride or N-Methyl Pyrrolidone.

We know what many of you are asking— is Sonic Strip paint stripper as effective as traditional paint strippers? Yes, and we can prove it! Check out this video to see it live in action in our recent Training Class. Seeing is believing.

We also outline all the ways Sonic Strip goes head to head with the competition below.

Best Eco-Friendly Paint Stripper for Refinishers

Application: Like traditional solvent strippers, NAPCO’s Sonic Strip can be brushed on and will stay where applied. It even clings to vertical surfaces—not all traditional strippers have this type of cling!

Activity Time: NAPCO’s Sonic Strip softens coatings within 20-30 minutes. Even though you may not see the bubbling and blistering action like with the methylene chloride strippers, with proper application, wait time, and with the swipe of the scraper, Sonic Strip lifts the coating with ease.

Strips and Peels: NAPCO’s Sonic Strip paint stripper is effective for the removal of acrylics, urethanes, modern epoxies, enamels, lacquers, and most other coatings. Sonic Strip can be used on porcelain, ceramic, metal, wood, and FIBERGLASS surfaces. It even has humectant built into it to prevent it from drying.

Cleanup process: Our new paint stripper makes for an easy clean-up! NAPCO’s Sonic Strip lifts the film up from the substrate and keeps the coating more intact. With Sonic Strip, paint comes off in sheets and large sections. Tired of dealing with the gooey mess that accompanies traditional paint strippers? Try Sonic Strip.
