Seal ’n Lock Bio-Strip

sealnlock-tampa-paver-sealerSeal ’n Lock Bio Strip stripper is a novel blend of environmentally friendly compounds formulated into a non-toxic, highly effective paint stripping system.  This unique product contains 15% bio-renewable
carbon and its high loading capacity gives it the ability to strip surfaces in one application. It is an excellent alternative to hazardous low flash point materials such as methylene chloride, NMP, and acetone; which are commonly used for stripping applications.
Performance Characteristics

  • Ideal for removing acrylics, enamels, epoxies, lacquers, latexes, moisture-cured
    coatings and urethanes from most substrates.
  • High flash point
  • High loading capacity makes stripper last longer.
  • Low evaporation rate allows for long stripper on substrate dwell times and lower
    volume use due to fewer reapplications resulting from solvent evaporation
    before the coating is removed.
  • Will not harm aluminum, composites, concrete, metal, steel or wood

Toxicological & Environmental Profile

  • Contains no carcinogenic or toxic compounds
  • Contains no peroxides, methylene chloride, NMP or other dangerous chemicals
  • Contains no ozone depleting chemicals, no hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) and no global
    warming compounds
  • No SARA reportable components
  • Readily bio-degradable
  • VOC compliant per EPA, AQMD, and CARB regulations

Application and use

Because these products are bio-solvent blends they
strip differently from industry standard strippers like methylene chlorine or
NMP.  Bio-strippers need time to work as the stripping mechanism is
different from petroleum-based solvents.  Bio-solvents penetrate paints
and coatings and work by breaking the bond between the coating and the
substrate, whereas petroleum based solvents work by dissolving coatings.
 As a result it is important to give the bio-stripper time to work. For 2
part urethane/epoxies and/or thicker coatings, we recommend 2 Mils stripping to
substrate followed by covering the area with plastic cover for 12 hours and
then pressure washing the stripper from the surface.  We believe in letting the chemicals do the


Flat or
vertical surfaces
Apply 1 - 2 mils of stripper to substrate. 
Allow sufficient time to lift paint. Remove with a plastic paint
scrapper. Typically a dwell time of 45 to 60 minutes is sufficient for a
waterborne 2 part urethanes and other coatings. Dwell times needed to remove
coatings are dependent on the coating thickness, type and age as well as the
porosity of the surface.  A second
stripper application may be necessary.


Performance Data:  The data below outlines typical performance for
removing various types of coatings. 
Coating time will vary depending on coating thickness and surface


  • Acrylic coating (12mils)                                     Strip time = 20 to 30 minutes
  • Acrylic (12 mils) over elastomeric (8 mils)          Strip time = 3 hours
  • Moisture-cured epoxy                                       Strip time = 10 to 20 minutes
  • 2 Part waterborne epoxy                                   Strip time = 45 to 60 minutes
  • Oil & water stains, transparent or pigmented      Strip time = 20 to 30 minutes
  • Oil Based Enamel                                             Strip time = 20 to 30 minutes
  • Polyurethane                                                   Strip time = 45 to 60 minutes
