Directions for use

1. Wear chemical-resistant gloves, chemical splash goggles and appropriate work shoes. Shake well and open can slowly to relieve pressure.

2. Pour 2-3 cups over a small area (up to 9 sq ft). Cover the applied area with a heavy plastic drop cloth. Use a long-handled paint roller on top of the plastic with very little pressure to spread the stripper under the plastic, just to the edges. Do not step on the covered area as plastic may become slippery Leave the area and let the stripper do the work. Do not allow the stripper to completely dry on the surface as the adhesive can re-adhere.

3. After 15-30 minutes, scrape a small test area to see if the adhesive is softened and ready for removal. If so, remove the plastic sheeting. Use a long-handled sidewalk scraper or floor hoe to scrape loosened adhesive. Any stripper that is still liquid can be pushed to the next 9 sq. ft. area and reused. If the stripper and adhesive form a thick gel or solid material, use a broom and dustpan to pick up material and take it outside to fully dry. Before the scraped area is completely dry, use a mop and water to get up any residue after scraping.

4. Continue onto the next small area using the same procedure and allowing time between each application for fumes to dissipate.

HELPFUL TIPS: Do not mix with any other product. For best results, use in temperatures between 65°F and 85°F and away from strong breeze and hot sun. Protect surrounding areas with a heavy plastic drop cloth. Do not use on linoleum, plastic, rubber, asphalt tile, fiberglass or other synthetics. Stripping any large area such as floors has the potential to result in high levels of potentially hazardous vapors. Working within a small area at a time makes the job easier and decreases hazards. Vapors tend to collect along the floor, so do as much work as possible using long-handled tools to avoid bending and crawling.
