I've never heard of this product. I'm in CA - do you know if its a national brand? Will it damage the cultured marbles' finish?

Thanks

Yes it is available where ever paint is sold and no it should not( test a small area to be sure)

"Cultured marble" is more of a plastic product than stone, polyester I think, and therefore has little to do with 'marble'. It may contain marble dust, but either way won't be affected by paint strippers. Solvent blend removers shouldn't penetrate into the product but test to make sure.
