Removing paint from Fypon
I just bought a home. There were painted beams in the living room. As I was cleaning the walls for painting, using TSP, I got some on the painted beams. The paint started to come off and I noticed how attractive the wood look Fypon beams were.

I am not positive that the material is Fypon. Is there an easier way to remove the paint than rubbing them with TSP water? It would take me forever that way.

Thank you!

Hi Joe, Thank you for contacting me about my question. I have attached a photo for you. Please let me know what you think. The foam beams are suppose to look like wood.

Thank you!:)
