Removing Poly


Does anyone know of anything other than elbow grease and scraper that will remove poly? I haven't seen a paint remover that will touch it.

I can well imagine that the alcohol-based strippers won't do anything to it. Have you tried one of the methylene chloride based strippers, like ZipStrip?

60 grit on a ROS seems to cut through it reasonably quickly. Less elbow grease anyway.

There is stripper that will cut poly... They sell two types and you MUST get the poly version.

Aircraft-type stripper with methylene chloride is the only type that really touches that shi^H^Htuff, Fred. Now you know just 1 of the -many- reasons I dislike that polyurinestain stuff.
