Surface Preparation

  • Remove any loose and flaking paint.
  • Brush off any physical surface contamination e.g. moss, general dirt etc.



  • Apply a uniform layer of DSP 800, according to the coating to be stripped.
  • Allow to work.
  • Periodically test with a scraper to see if finish is softening. When coating has softened, blistered or cracked and can easily be removed then the optimal working time has been established.
    If after 45 min there is no result, apply again and continue test.


  • Apply a uniform layer of DSP 800 according to the coating to be stripped.
  • Allow to work in accordance with the test carried out above.
  • Remove stripper and coating with a scraper or scrubbing brush. On delicate wood use a soft brass brush. On interior wood use a scraper or soft brass brush.
  • Caution: If the coating being stripped is an acrylic do not allow DSP 800 to dry, as this makes scrubbing and removal of the coating difficult.


  • DSP 800 is also recommended for use on old oiled or waxed wooden floors. The use of DSP 800 prevents clogging and unnecessary changing of the sanding sheets.
  • DSP 800 may also be used for “dry stripping”. Allow mix of coating and DSP 800 to dry 2 to 3 hours before removing. Not recommended on wood.

Paraffin Warning

The paraffin in DSP 800 creates a film on top of the stripper to avoid evaporation of the active ingredients.
Once the stripper has destroyed the old coating, it starts to attack the paraffin, this can lead to particles of paraffin being left on the surface, which can affect the adhesion and appearance of the new finish. It is therefore important to treat the surface as directed in “After Stripping” below.

After Stripping

Rinse surface with warm water, White Spirit, Acetone or by mechanically sanding (80, 100 or 120 grit paper) to remove any paraffin residue.
