Just wanted to drop you a note about a product I purchased from you. I have never written regarding a product before, but I had to
send a note about Soy-Gel. This has to be the most amazing stripper I have ever used!! We are building a house and I have an old kitchen
table (grandmothers) that I wanted to refinish. I have kids that are involved in a lot of activities so finding a time and place to work
on this kind of project is tough. Last night, I stripped the top of the table in no time flat (in the kitchen) while cooking supper and doing
laundry! No Odor!! Stop and go as often as you like. I even made a trip to the store. WOW! Didn't have a mess, no fumes! UNREAL!!
Everyone should try this! This stuff is really something! The Best!
Thanks a lot!
Before and After
I used your soybean stripper on my brick floors (just a test - pictures attached). I will shortly be placing an order for quite a bit to finish the house.
An old house, brick floors are 22 years old. The first coat of sealer applied to these floors was an OIL based sealer. Then 20+ years of various polyurethanes.
I used your soybean stripper - had to apply it quite thick because the brick is uneven. Covered it with a single thickness of household plastic garbage bags, left it for 6 hours.
Check it out! An estimate (3 years ago) for a professionally done refinish was at $2700.00+ for about 700 sq. feet (the kitchen/dining
room/living room area). I figure I can do the entire house (1375 sq.ft) for around $1200. I can do it in small sections (have 4 dogs) according to my schedule.
Thanks for a great product - I have a bird and they're very susceptible to chemicals. No problem with the soybean stripper. Feel free to use
these pictures (taken with an old, low resolution digital camera) if you'd like. --Jan F.
Soy-Gel is an industrial strength and consumer friendly paint, varnish, and urethane remover made from 100% American grown soybeans. The lower evaporation rate of Soy-Gel and its gel formulation make it possible to remove several layers of paint in one application. During the removal of lead based paint, lead becomes encapsulated in the gel, preventing airborne lead particles, allowing for safe and easy disposal. Soy-Gel contains no methylene chloride, is not an alkaline based stripper and cleans up easily with water. Unlike more traditional paint strippers Soy-Gel gets you through the paint removal process without the odor. Indoors or outdoors, you can be guaranteed a safe restoration process with Soy-Gel.
Soy-Gel is safe to use on wood, brick, stone, concrete, metal, plaster and many other surfaces. Do not use on plastic, PVC,
rubber or dry wall. Soy-Gel may be used indoors or outdoors. When used outdoors, protecting plant and vegetation with a plastic
drop cloth is recommended. Soy-Gel may be used on vertical as well as horizontal projects.
For paint removal, apply a thick layer of Soy-Gel™ to the coating to be removed by pouring, brushing or airless sprayer. If applying by brush do not
apply as you would paint. Lay on a thick even layer up to 1/8 of an inch. Don’t brush or scrape the surface until the stripper has had the
time to work. Check the progress of the stripping action by using a scraper to see if the coating is softened down to the surface. If not,
wait longer and recheck. Soy-Gel™ will remain wet and working for several hours. Longer is better. Let the stripper do the work. If Soy-Gel™
is left to sit for long periods of time outdoors, cover with a light plastic poly to prolong the stripper’s wet time. Once the coating is
softened, remove it with a scraper or other stripping tool. Always wear protective clothing, rubber gloves and glasses. Avoid skin contact.
Reapply stripper, if necessary. Repeat steps above. After use, clean remaining thin residue with water, using a scrub brush, cloth or
fibrous scrub pad and rubber gloves. Allow surface to dry before further preparations. If residue is difficult to remove with water then use TSP (trisodium phosphate) and water. Scrub the surface and wash with clean water. To remove dark iron stains or pet stains use Oxalic Acid once
the wood is dry.
