Carlow paint hub paint stripper test

Part I – The Test

Yesterday we tried out, and compared, every paint stripper available in the Irish market. 

What we learned so far:

All paint strippers are not equal: there is a huge difference in performance, speed, effectiveness, smell, solvent emissions, etc. If it’s called a ‘Paint Stripper’ then it will strip paint but some strippers will leave a spotless surface while others will require a fair amount of elbow grease and scraping to remove the paint.

Some strippers are still quite toxic and contain a lot of solvents, while some new stripper brands are totally eco and just as effective, if not more effective, than the old market leaders.
