So, after you all gave me a bad time about the title of this thread...I'm not sure I want to revive it. However, I did find a stripper that works on latex paint and leaves the Zolatone alone...Motsenbocker's Lift Off #5. It actually works very well...I'll post some pictures later this evening of the test patches I tried - it works great on latex paint.

The problem I have is about 50% of the paint I am trying to remove has a "glaze" over the latex paint (very uneven yellowed patches) andthe Lift Off #5 unfortunately doesn't get through the glaze...but the areas with latex only - it's awesome! I may try one of the other 3's that's more for paint & varnish...although I'm afraid they will eat the Zolatone too - we'll see.

I didn't think that was legal in Texas!

Thanks Leo...let me know how it goes, I have lots & lots of stripping to do, I'm still looking for suggestions. Somehow I'm having a hard time rationalizing the cost Napier stripper plus shipping, not knowing if it's going to work for what I want. Let me know if you have success ~

Motsenbocker's #5

Hi Sheri,

I have a question about Mostenbockers #5 for Latex. I see that you have recommended it in another thread too and wondered how extensively you ended up using it. Our zolatone is painted with latex which is either flat or an eggshell finish at most (yay!) Based on your recommendation, I picked up a spray bottle at the local DIY store. I tried it in two spots in the closet as a test and it worked awesome.

My question - how agressive can you be after spraying on and letting it work for a minute or so? Does a scrubby pad or other paint stripping texturized sponges work OK or do you need to be more gentle with the zolatone finish? I tried a paint remover "sponge thing" similar to a green scrubby pad and it didn't seem to damage the zolatone, but again, it was about a 12 x 12 area that I did. I think this is a project for the upcoming winter, but I'm so excited at how well it worked, that I'm dying to know.

Thanks for your advice in advance!! If you have this in one of your other threads, I apologize for missing it.

Tina

Tina ~ Sorry I missed this question

I'm sure you have answered it yourself by now, but as you know, we ended up changing directions and stripping our trailer down to the ribs, replacing some aluminum panels & re-Zolotoning the whole thing. However, I would say that Mostenbocker #5 worked well - but I wouldn't want to go that route on an entire trailer - re Zolotoning is so much easier! An end cap or partially painted one would be enough work. I also wouldn't use too much pressure with a scrubby pad because it will abrade through the Zolotone. I used as little pressure as I could to still be effective and let the product do the work.
