    Peel Away

    Peel Away paint removal system is an ideal material for restoration and renovation applications. Using the Peel Away system to remove lead and Asbestos paint offers a range of environmental benefits which makes it suitable for a wide variety of internal and external use.

    Most other mechanical methods used for the removal of old paint like sand and grit blasting, as well as high pressure blasters, have difficulties with waste containment. If the requirement is the removal of many layers of old lead paint, the end result could lead to harmful airborne particles, soil contamination and finally, water pollution. Peel Away removes these health and safety issues.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What makes it unique is that the product is a thick chemical paste that is applied to the surface and covered with a special laminated paper cover sheet supplied. This allows the product to be sealed in and emulsify the many layers of paint over a time period. The laminated paper cover is carefully removed with the paste and the many layers of paint. All of this is fully contained within the laminated paper sheet and can be carefully disposed of. Since it's inception and invention over 25 years ago, very few products can compare with this proven system.
    Firstly, there are no harsh solvents used in the product. The chemicals used are safe to handle and apply, although as with any chemical product it is always advisable to wear protective clothing. When dealing with higher contents of lead in older paints, the Peel Away product traps all the loose particles in the paste and fully contains the softened layers of paint as well. This ensures safe containment of the waste and complies with the environmental authority's law in registering lead waste. This also contributes to the reduction of lead particles going down our waterways during the washing process as all the paint is fully contained as lead waste. Any waste water can be treated when collected.
