Application areas and surface suitability

Instastrip is a total floor stripper and coating remover.

Instastrip is safe for use on vinyl and most resilient floors and quickly softens and emulsifies old worn and discoloured finishes for easy removal. Instastrip must not be used to remove sealer and polish finishes from sealed timber floors as it may affect the timber seal, requiring sanding to rectify the floor

Always pretest in an inconspicuous location.

  • Dilute at 1:10 for removing light build-ups

  2. Apply solution liberally to floor area with a cotton mop ensuring that the area is thoroughly wet. (Always work in small controllable area sizes)
  3. Allow at least 5 minutes dwell time and then agitate with low speed rotary scrubber or auto-scrubber fitted with a black, brown or high productivity pad.
  4. Be careful to ensure that the area does not “dry out” on the surface.
  5. After scrubbing, pick up slurry and rinse thoroughly with clean water to ensure that all stripper and sealer residues are removed.
  6. Allow floor to dry before with the restoration process and re-strip any areas that may still have polish build-up or that were missed in the first application.
