KBS Strip FAQ's

To achieve expert results, please take the time to carefully read and understand the following directions before you begin your restoration project. These directions are meant to be general guidelines only and do not cover every application or environmental situation. If you have remaining questions or concerns, please call us toll-free for technical assistance.

ALWAYS WEAR PROTECTIVE GLOVES AND SAFETY GLASSES. ALWAYS WORK IN A WELL-VENTILATED AREA. Please heed all labeled warning and caution notices on all products.


Carefully pour Strip into spray bottle (use ONLY in special sprayer provided) and adjust the sprayer nozzle for an even spray pattern.

Spray an even, generous layer of Strip and allow it to work approx. 15 minutes. (heavy coatings may require spraying again to completely loosen surface finish.)

Gently scrape off blistered finish with putty knife and place in metal container. A small stiff scrub brush can be used on corners or tougher areas.

After the majority (90%) of the finish is removed, spray again. After 5–10 minutes, wash with #2 steel-wool or stripping pad dipped in water or solvent (paint thinner, alcohol, mineral spirits).

Wipe completely clean with a rag or paper towel. If not cleaned completely steel wool may leave residue which can cause spots and streaking. Pour unused remover back into container and rinse out both bottle and sprayer with water. Clean up rags, paper and waste promptly. Allow solvents to evaporate, then dispose of in metal container in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.


Carefully Pour entire contents of can into tank and slowly rotate and roll tank until all sides are evenly coated. Patiently work with it for a minimum of 20 minutes but no longer than 1 hour, periodically checking inside.

If an area needs extra attention, prop the tank so that the excess collects on that area. Continue this until the majority of the remaining sealer is loosened and/or removed.

After Strip has been allowed to work, pour out & capture into an appropriate metal container for possible reuse. Rinse tank thoroughly with water. If any part of the sealer still remains, repeat steps until old sealant is removed.

Rinse tank with water and allow to dry COMPLETELY before using appropriate prep products and Gold Standard Tank Sealer.


Harmful To: Tile, Linoleum, Asphalt, Plastics, Rubber and Synthetics.

May soften fiberglass.

Strip should be used within six months of opening or disposed of properly to avoid can deterioration.
