A paint remover functions by penetrating layers of paint and causing the layers to de-laminate from each other. Once the bond between the paint or varnish and underlying surface is compromised, the paint or varnish becomes easy to remove. METHOCEL™ acts to reduce evaporation rates of solvents and keep them in place, optimizing the time the solvent interacts with the surface.
Advantages of Using METHOCEL™:
- Organic and water solubility
- Used to compatibilize disparate solvents
- Helps softened paint to be rinsed off easily with water
- Can be added directly to solvent under normal agitation, no need to pre-disperse in a non or low-solvent component
- Free flowing powder disperses evenly without lumps
- Fine tune thixotropy
- Stripper remains on the vertical surface
- Longer contact times by reducing evaporation rate
