HOW DO YOU APPLY SOY•GEL™?
For small jobs you can apply SOY•Gel™ with an inexpensive paint brush and glob it on to the surface . Be careful not to apply too thin a coat. Apply a 1/16th to 1/8th inch layer of SOY•Gel™ to the coating which is to be removed. For larger applications you can apply SOY•Gel™ with a straw broom or use a piston pump airless sprayer with a 519 tip. Allow the stripper time to work. Check the progress of the stripping action by using a scraper to see if the coating is softened down to the surface. If not, wait longer and recheck. SOY•Gel™ will remain wet and working for several hours. Longer is better. Let the stripper do its work. Once the coating is softened remove it with a scraper, industrial wet vacuum or other stripping tool. Reapply SOY•Gel™ when necessary to remove extra heavy coatings and repeat the steps above. After scraping off the final stripping residue, clean the surface by rinsing with water using a scrub brush or a power washer.
HOW LONG DO I LET SOY•GEL™ SIT BEFORE REMOVING?
Test scrape the surface every 10-30 minutes to see if the coating has lifted. Simple coatings like latex and urethanes take, on average, between 10-60 minutes. Epoxies and multiple layers of other coatings can take a few hours to overnight to lift. If applying outside, it is usually a good idea to cover with a thin mil plastic drop cloth to keep the SOY•Gel™ from drying out over an extended period of time.
WILL SOY•GEL™ RAISE THE GRAIN OF WOOD?
SOY•Gel™ it self will not raise the grain of wood. During final cleanup using too much water may raise the grain of the wood.
