Industrial Paint Stripping Question


Hey yall. I am about to start removing thick chipped paint chunks and such from two large crown mouldings I have on the exterior of my brownstone. I noticed that here in NYC specifically in soho when they want to strip the paint off of large exterior areas quickly, they apply some sort of adhesive sheet that sticks to the surface and latter gets peeled I believe, loosening all of the paint.

Was this a dream I had last night or do they make something like this? I believe the sheets were yellow with a repeated logo GP?

Any thoughts on where to get them would be helpful as well..

I'm not familiar with the adhesive strips, but a great paint stripper is Multi-Strip. It's fairly environmentally friendly (don't need respirator) and works great. It's not cheap, but works. It is a messy job, so cover everything and put down plastic and newspapers to collect all the dripping paint. (Also, this alleviates concerns about lead paint, as you are not sanding or releasing dust into the air). Good luck

There are a couple of products like that on the market. I've never used them, but I suggest you do a search.

The paper seals out the air, and for an exterior, that's a good idea.

Stripper doesn't work so well in direct sunlight and the wind dries it out too fast.

But, to answer your question, yes they do make a product like that.
