Palace Chemicals is set to pave the way in methylene chloride free paint strippers with the official launch of Langlow Strip Away (formerly known as Langlow Peel Away) and Langlow Strip Away LV.
As the industry comes to terms with the forthcoming EU ban on traditional methylene chloride paint strippers, the firm which offers one of the most wide-ranging portfolios of DIY, tile adhesives, building and construction products has rebranded two of its existing products to fill the huge gap left in the market.
Jim Percival, technical director at the firm said: “The new ban will have far-reaching effects for the industry and almost 90 per-cent of the established volume for chemical paint removers will no longer be available to the DIY market.”
Always ahead of the game, Palace Chemicals has now redeveloped two of its core products to offer not only the same high performance paint stripping properties, but revamped packaging aimed at attracting a broader market share.”
Langlow Strip Away can be used to successfully remove old established coatings from ceilings, cornices, masonry, ornate plasterwork and wrought iron-work in addition to soft timbers. Making use of a water-based thixotropic paste incorporating highly alkaline caustic soda acts as a powerful stripping agent capable of liquidizing up to 30 layers of paint.
Mr Percival added, “Both Langlow Strip Away and Langlow Strip Away LV were showcased at Totally DIY 2010 and the response was fantastic and we were proud to present one of the busiest stands at the show.”
