Variation of Method of Vinyl Removal
We did a test of the Jasco stripper on an interior vinyl clad skin. The results are under the previous post. We ended up changing up a few parts of our removal method and I wanted you guys to see our results. Any advice or comments would be appreciated.The steps, results, and photos are listed below.
1. We layed interior panel on its side.
2. Sprayed with Tilex. (Bought large container with hose sprayer from Lowes).
3. Left Tilex on for 15 minutes.
4. Sprayed with water hose to remove any Tilex and dirt/grime. (We did have to respray a couple of times).
5. Let panel dry in sun.
6. Layed panel onto makeshift table (in shaded area) to apply stripper.
7. Measured off lengthwise sections a little narrower than the cling wrap. Needed allowance for overlap. See below.
8. Applied stripper with a 2 inch throwawy brush (Wally world multi pack). Poured small amount of stripper directly onto panel in narrow line down length of panel staying in measured section. Brushed stripper down measured off section to have a thin layer brushed on.
9. Covered with Cling Wrap pressing cling wrap down so that the wrap will grab and stick to the Jasco remover.
10.Put panels on side (easier storage), left stripper on overnight.
Below are pictures of our results. Two people make this an easy job. The wide cling wrap/film from Sam's or Costco would have made it an easier one but we just used what we had on hand. It took about 1 1/2 gallons of the Jasco Premium Paint and Epoxy Remover to do all the panels. The hubby was in charge of putting the Remover/stripper on and after the first few pieces, he decided to just use a little more on the edges and right under the egdes to ensure they lifted up. After he brushed stripper out, I held cling wrap box and I pulled out edge of wrap, he grabbed edge of wrap from me, then I put my fingers inside of box and into the edges of tube. This helped the wrap roll out easier. Basically from here, he went to one end of the panel and I walked down to other end of panel pulling out wrap as I went. We did not lay down the cling wrap until I got to the end of panel. Then he layed his end down, walked down beside panel pressing down as he went. First piece of wrap had about an inch overhang which we just tucked under. After first wrap section we just made sure we overlapped each section from our allowance measurements.
The vinyl almost FELL OFF the skin!!!
