HEAT-N-STRIP™ Infrared Paint Remover
The HEAT-N-STRIP™ is an infrared heater that is used to strip paint and varnish from doors, windows, frames, columns, architectural woodwork, soffits, corner boards, fascia boards, hardwood floors, clapboards, shingles, window glazing, metal surfaces, etc…
Just place the HEAT-N-STRIP™on the surface to be stripped for 20-60 seconds and then scrape the softened paint from the surface with a carbide scraper.
The HEAT-N-STRIP™ only heats the paint to approximately 400 degrees Fahrenheit making it safe for lead paint removal.
Standard heat guns heat the paint to over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit which creates dangerous fumes and a fire hazard.
Use the unique hands-free retaining pins to hold the HEAT-N-STRIP™ on vertical surfaces eliminating the need for expensive arms and accessories.
The heating elements last up to 5000 hours and are very easy to replace.
The heating elements are made out of glass and may break if you drop the HEAT-N-STRIP™. We recommend that you purchase an extra set of heating elements to have on hand.
The HEAT-N-STRIP™ is Environmentally Safe and meets EPA guidelines for lead paint removal.
Built-in Thermal Circuit Breaker protects against overheating.

LEAD PAINT WARNING: When stripping lead paint, always use a HEPA vacuum and NEVER use any of our products on asbestos. Lead paint is dangerous, so it is critical that you take steps to insure that lead dust and chips do not get into the soil, are contained in your work area and the area is cleaned up properly. Information on how to safely handle your lead paint project can be found at the EPA RRP website: http://www2.epa.gov/lead/renovation-repair-and-painting-program.
