Step 1 : Apply stripping agent
Pour a generous amount of Super Remover NEW GENERATION directly on the surface you wish to strip. Always spread the product in the direction of the wood grain, so as not to cause damage. The stripping agent works easily to remove up to 5 coats of paint or varnish.
Step 2 : Spread the product evenly
Apply a layer of stripping agent at least 3 mm thick (the thickness of two 2-dollar coins) over the entire wooden surface using a silk paintbrush. Be sure to add extra product to corners and detailing such as ornaments or moldings, as well as deep wood grain.

Step 4 : Eliminate residue
