Paint removal

Buildup of old paint on wooden, masonry, or metal surfaces can inhibit the ability of new coats of paint to adhere. Buildup of paint on millwork can diminish the texture and depth of the historic materials. In some cases, excessive layers of old paint can inhibit a building's ability to breathe. Many rehabilitation and restoration projects, accordingly, call for removal of old paint as preparation for new finishes.

During renovation of buildings, contractors face the challenges of removing old paints on the building. There are various ways of removing paints. Common methods to remove paint or lacquer from doors, weather-boards, furniture and window frames.are by scraping, by using chemicals, heat gum method, refinishing wood, etc. 

Paint can very effectively be removed with heat. Special paint removers or heat guns use heat for paint or varnish removal. LPG powered tools including heat plates, heat guns, and open-flame LPG torches, are very effective for paint removal. They destroy the film in the old paint making scraping of the old paint easy. LPG paint shavers can also be used to remove strips, all coatings (including lead paint) from clapboards, shingles, shakes, flat trim, flat windows, flat doors and all other flat wood, concrete, steel and fiberglass surfaces. This is one of the fastest, cleanest, most economical ways for paint removal. 

In the metal industry, LPG can be used to remove e-coats, powder coats, and wet paints from multiple metals without damaging the substrate. LPG paint removal offers many cost, process, and environmental advantages over alternative paint removal techniques.
