Perma-Chink S 100 Finish Remover, 18.9 L

$0.00 / PAIL
Perma-Chink S-100 Finish Remover is an environmentally friendly water-based solvent that removes many oil and water-borne finishes from logs, siding, and decks. Supplied as a ready-to-use gel, it is easily applied with a short bristled brush, paint roller, or airless sprayer. Within a few minutes it begins to soften the finish and since it is a gel, it stays wet and active for a fairly long period of time. Once the finish has sufficiently softened, it can be removed by simply pressure washing. S-100 will not darken or discolor the wood, will not corrode or discolor metal surfaces, nor will it harm log home chinking or sealants. Learn more about Perma-Chink.

S-100 works best when applied at temperatures between 50°F and 90°F and try to avoid working in direct sunlight. Work on small sections (50 square feet or so) at a time. Apply a generous amount of S-100 to the wood surface using a brush or roller. If removing a finish from a wall, start at the bottom of the wall and work your way up. Allow the S-100 to remain on the surface for at least 20 minutes. In cooler weather it may take up to a couple of hours for the finish to soften. If it starts to dry out, lightly mist it with water to keep it active. Once the finish has softened, remove it with a pressure washer. On walls pressure wash starting at the bottom of the area and work your way up. If there are spots where pressure washing has not removed all of the finish, try scraping off the remaining finish with a paint scraper while the finish is still soft. Protected areas under porch roofs, soffits, etc. may need a second application to remove all of the finish. Once the finish removal process is completed, be sure to thoroughly rinse the surface from the top down in order to remove any S-100 residue and return the wood to its proper pH balance. Use pH Strips to verify adequate rinsing.
