Compared with sandpaper sanding, the use of paint remover to remove the old coating film has the advantages of safety, environmental protection and high efficiency.

Advantages of using paint remover
High efficiency, use at room temperature, low corrosion to metals, simple construction, no need to increase equipment, the disadvantage is that some paint strippers are toxic, volatile, flammable, and costly. In recent years, a variety of new paint remover products continue to emerge, water-based paint remover is also produced, paint removal efficiency continues to increase, environmental performance continues to improve, non-toxic, low-toxic, non-combustible products have gradually occupied the mainstream market of paint remover.
