For anyone trying to remove paint

Recommended Posts

Well a week ago I bought some tal-strip from Ideal Supply yesterday my buddy let me borrow his miny pressure washer and wow removing paint off aluminium and mainly rivets could not be easier, let the strip set till the paint bubbles and power wash it off, even the tar inside on the floor comes off quite easy :-) Just thought it would be a good heads up for anyone working on there boat this winter

 

 

Cheers,

Great tip thanks. One question is are you going to repaint and if so what are you going to use and how will you prep the aluminum. I would like to touch up my Lund 14ft.

Product works great but just as a warning it is a very nasty chemical use all your personal protective equipment. My company won,t allow that chemical on any of their properties.

Yup the stuff is very nasty and I should have said use all available ppe's, I am not sure if I am going to repaint just the top side or just the bottom yet, I do like the aluminium look but I think the bottom what I will do is strip it right down to bare then 2 part epoxy primer then my bud has some left over marine acrylic enamel to go over top also all that should help seal the bottom

FYI... for anyone doing this.... you really should use Tal-Strip II (Aircraft coating remover) on aluminum....not the standard stocked "Tal-Strip" as it's for metal and really shouldn't be used on aluminum.
