Wolman DeckStrip Stain & Finish Remover is a ready-to-use, universal exterior wood stripper for all types of traditional stains and pigmented finishes. In just 15 minutes, DeckStrip will cut through and remove old, weathered coatings including solid or semi-transparent stains, tinted water repellents or other tonertype transparent finishes. Oil-based, water-based and tough-toremove latex stains are easily removed in on application. Once stripped, wood is restored to its bright, clean, natural look. Using DeckStrip before re-application of a protective finish or stain helps ensure proper adhesion, penetration and optimum performance of the finish.

How to Apply Wolman Deckstrip Stain & Finish Remover
Pre-rinse grass, plants and scrubs surrounding the wood structure to be stripped cleaned. Cover foliage to protect against product exposure. Mask off siding and cover all wood surfaces (siding and flashing) to prevent corrosion. Cover any exposed aluminum surfaces to prevent corrosion. Protect adjacent concrete surfaces from rinse water. Sweep away any surface dirt and debris. If the surface is in direct sunlight and hot to the touch, dampen with fresh water to cool. Remove any standing water before beginning application.
Apply - For best results, begin project when the outside temperature is above 50°F (10C) and when 24 hours of precipitation-free weather is expected. No mixing is necessary. Do not mix with any other cleaning products. On a horizontal surface, apply with a synthetic bristle brush or mop. On a vertical surface (siding or fencing), apply with a synthetic bristle brush or deep-nap roller, working from the bottom to the top of the structure. A pump sprayer (with no aluminum parts) may also be used, but Safe Handling directions must be followed to avoid exposure to overspray. Work end-to-end on 5-10 boards (20 square foot areas) at a time, in order to maintain adequate surface wetness to allow concentration of the stripping effort. Allow the product to sit for 10-15 minutes, keeping wet with additional stripper as needed.
