Uses and Applications.
Interior and exterior forms of carpentry - including windows.
The Silent Paint Remover removes quickly heats multiple layers of
paint and varnish. It also heats window glazing at the same time
- making window restoration
quick, easy, and effective. While you scrape, the next surface is
heated up with little work interruption.
Other Applications include:
Wooden boats. This is an ideal tool for removal of varnish on wooden boats. Thick layers of varnish and paint can be removed with a sharp scraper after heating. Thin layers can be removed by heating and buffing with steel-wool. You can also utilize raw linseed oil to soften varnish to be removed. Do not use "turpentine" to dilute boiled linseed oil. Turpentine will leave a residue after it dries that is not recommended and may have negative impact on the adhesion of various paint. Apply the raw linseed oil and let it soak in for 24 hours. Reheat and buff with steel wool. The Silent Paint Remover™ also works on removing bottom paint. Utilize the raw linseed oil, heat and scrape.
Metal. The Silent Paint Remover may also work on thin metal that has
been painted - like metal gutters. Testing is suggested.
Plaster. It may be possible to remove paint from plaster
and using The Silent Paint Remover but you must be extremely careful
when scraping in order not to damage the plaster.
Fiberglass. Heat may damage the gelcoat. You must be careful
not to overexpose.
Brick, marble and concrete. Marble, brick and concrete will
require a much longer heating time. It will also take longer time
scraping off the paint on these surfaces. Consider trying a rental
to test work on your specific application work with this tool.
