When using the Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper you can and should use one or both additives for certain scenarios as not all stain removal projects are the same. This article is a guide to help determine the best way to strip your exterior deck or outside wood so you can achieve the maximum results.
Let’s breakdown the three Restore-A-Deck Stripping components that can be used while removing your exterior stain.
Note: The Gel and Booster work as additives for the Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper and are not effective as standalone products.
Restore-A-Deck Wood Stain Stripper is a biodegradable, powdered concentrate that is mixed with water. Each RAD Stripper container makes 5 liquid gallons. Restore-A-Deck Wood Stain Stripper removes most oil and latex-based finishes including clear sealers, transparent stains, and semi-transparent stains.
Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper Thickening Gel is a special blend that is added to premixed 5-Gallons of the Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper. With a longer dwell time, Restore-A-Deck Stripper Thickening Gel will raise the effectiveness of the stain stripping by adding the ability to cling to vertical and horizontal surfaces for up to 1 hour. Works especially well on improving the performance of the stripping on vertical wood such as wood railings, wood fences, and wood-sided homes.
Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper Booster Additive is a special blend of solvents that is added to premixed 5-Gallons of the Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper. The Restore-A-Deck Stripper Booster will raise the effectiveness of the stain stripping up to 300% by helping to break down the surface tension of difficult to remove wood stain finishes.
Use the chart below to help determine the proper products to remove your stain.
Note: You must Neutralize after Stripping with the Restore-A-Deck Wood Brightener.
