How long do I let SOY•Gel™ work?

Answer: Remember "Thicker better, longer stronger". Generally SOY•Gel™ can take anywhere from 5 minutes to 8 hours depending on what is being removed and how many coatings are to be removed. Let the product do the work. Test the surface every 20-30 minutes until the coatings begin to soften and are ready to be removed. -- ˆ Top ˆ

How long before SOY•Gel™ evaporates?

Answer: SOY•Gel™ has an extremely low evaporation rate. The product crystalizes when being left on for extended periods of time or in a mild or heavy breeze.

When using SOY•Gel™ in outdoor applications, the surface to be stripped may be covered with plastic to help keep it from crystalizing. -- ˆ Top ˆ

Can I use SOY•Gel™ to paint strip teak wood?

How is SOY•Gel™ removed once the coating has lifted?

Answer: Once the coating has softened, remove it using a scraper or other stripping tool. Use water to rinse off the rest. -- ˆ Top ˆ

Why is nothing happening?

Answer: The most common problem that occurs is, people do not let SOY•Gel™ work long enough. Generally, latex paints will "lift" much sooner than enamels. Because of its amazing staying power, SOY•Gel™ will stay moist for several hours, and as long as it is moist it continues to work on the coated surface. The second most common problem is that people do not put enough of the product on the surface. Make sure to have a thick coating of SOY•Gel™ (approx. 3mm) on the surface to be stripped. -- ˆ Top ˆ

What is the procedure for disposing of SOY•Gel™ after finishing the project?

Answer: SOY•Gel™ is 100% biodegradable. Check with your local landfill or EPA office about disposal of the coatings you are stripping. -- ˆ Top ˆ
