The Silent Paint Remover™ is a high quality tool for removing paint, varnish, adhesive, silicone caulk etc. The tool uses infrared heat to soften paint and varnish adhesive, silicone caulk etc. After the substance is scraped off with a high-quality pull scraper, you can paint immediately. Use Organic Linseed oil based paint for the absolute best results and minimum future maintenance, no cracking or peeling paint: www.solventfreepaint.com. The Complete SPR System includes scrapers, accessories, Hands-free attachments that eliminate work interruption on trim, wall, and soffit applications and more tools to make your projects go smoothly.

All Silent Paint Removers™ operate with the same principal of heating the mass of the wood releasing the bond between the first layer of paint, varnish or glue. When can the coating be removed? The variables are heating time, ambient temperature and the thickness of the surface that is heated. Thicker layers tend to be more sensitive to infrared heat and therefore easier to scrape off.

NOTE: For stubborn paint, varnish or old window glazing add our Organic purified RAW linseed oil onto the surface (allow a few days for the oil to soak in) and the old stuff will react to the infrared heat for easier scraping. The oil will also bind the small amount of dust you my may create with the scraper. NOTE: After removing paint, use Organic 50 year linseed oil paint to prevent any paint failure in the future. No cracking or peeling paint. Easy to maintain by adding the organic purified linseed oil every 5-10 years. Savings over time is gigantic. Find these organic products on our website www.solventfreepaint.com.
