Question Removall 220

Yes I did a search, Does this stuff go thru blue masking tape after a few hours?

I assume the plastic light lenses need to be covered also along with the belt moldings.

What about the Wbcci vinyl numbers?

I already used other paint removers but there is a thin film left in many places how long did you leave it on?

I read that most people just hosed it off, correct?

Do I need gloves and goggles?

If you are worried about the blue tape get some metal tape. Aluminum on a roll. Available at most hardware stores.

It is always a good idea to wear gloves and goggles when working with anything other than food. Seriously.

Naper RemovALL is a water-based paint and plasticoat remover that is biodegradable, non-toxic, user-friendly and environmentally safe. I've used it...it's very mild, yet still effective. You don't need gloves - it doesn't burn, but it's probably a good idea. But then, I didn't wear them...

It shouldn't eat up the tape...but it may be easier to remove the plastic lenses & such rather than tape them all up and then un-tape them afterwards. That way you know they won't get "the goo" on them.

HERE is the Napier RemovALL 220 Material Safety Data Sheet (from the VTS website).

I agree that it would be better to remove rather than mask your running lights.

Have fun!

Great product. User friendly.

Blue tape – I can’t comment on long term but I used the blue painter’s tape in two places: to cover the furnace exhaust after removing the protective screen guard and to wrap the open end of the propane supply line at the tongue. The tape has been there for two months and shows no sign of break down due to the stripper.

WBC numbers? No idea. I would not go to the trouble to protect existing. If they are damaged order another set.

I removed lens (both the ones with screws and some that are reflective and riveted in place) This was more about being able to apply stripper in every nook and cranny and also the removed lens were to be replaced with new.
The Removal product can be applied with a great degree of precision if you use a brush. I used a 4” nylon brush that lasted throughout the project. Just rinsed with the hose after each use.

I did not worry about window gaskets or any alum. trim. It just seemed to clean things up as we went along. Never noticed a “film” or residue but I washed each stripped section carefully. Photos attached are where I started stripping the Argosy’s rear (plastic or fiberglass) taillight housing. After a few hours I decided to remove the darn thing and replace with standard light assemblies.

My suggestion is to start at the top and work down applying stripper to manageable areas. I learned that using a large (4”) plastic scraper to remove the excess and then rinsing off with water and a soft brush worked really well. I never tried to blast off with even regular nozzle pressure just to minimize the chance of forcing water into the trailer.

My assumption is that you are removing clear coat and it may be harder to distinguish the effect as compared to watching paint blister and fall off.

For very stubborn and small areas I have been using the Takeoff Liquid. Use it with a spray bottle and scotch pad. Takeoff has a paste comparable to Removal but it does not cling to a vertical surface as well. Removal clings like crazy.

Yes, wear gloves and long sleeves. Eye protection should be there in case of a splash.

Removal is fairly friendly in terms of being a chemical but it should be handled with care. Follow direction on the can. It is a great grass killer for the areas in comes in contact. Since it is my neighbor's grass this was not a big issue.

If you decided to go the aluminum tape route use the handle of the screw driver to press the edges down. The tape will cut you up like a razor blade.

Wow this stuff works!!!

Left it on 4 hours, hosed it off then wiped it with no scratch pad.

I had used several other brands, but they all left residue.

What temperature is it where you are working? I would like to strip my endcaps but am alittle concerned it's too cold even here in Mississippi.

From the Napier RemovAll 220 product data sheet:

"OPTIMUM TEMPERATURE:
Surface temperatures should be 65 to 95 F (20 to 32 C).
The product performs effectively at lower temperatures
(even at 32 F, 0 C), but the dwell time increases."

I used the 220 to strip my 34' and liked it very well. In very hot weather, like 80's it tends to flatten out on the surface and look like just an oil coating, but it will stay for hours, at least 4 in the shade. I flushed it off with a garden hose and nozzle. Sometimes I would not have enough product on my paint brush and it would spread too thin and after I flushed it off I would let it dry and recoat the misses. I also used non scrathing plastic pads for tough spots. A great product and I found it didn't kill my grass here in Maine or at the AS park in Florida. Charlie E.

I think it was about 55 when I started and 50 when I hosed it off.
