600GL: Soy Gel™ Coatings Remover
A longtime favorite of contractors and other professionals, BLUE BEAR® Soy Gel™ 600GL Coatings Remover works on nearly all types of coatings. It clings to vertical surfaces, encapsulates coatings and migrates through multiple layers, down to wood, metal, brick or concrete. Made with American-grown soybeans, it’s low-odor, non-caustic and biodegradable.
- Powerful formula removes topical sealers, acrylics, enamels, urethanes, latex, some epoxies, other single-component coatings and lead-based paint*.
- No methylene chloride
- Average coverage of 125 square feet per gallon on horizontal surface and 75 square feet per gallon on vertical surface.
- Typically provides three times the coverage rate of traditional petroleum-based removers.
*Lead becomes encapsulated in the gel, preventing airborne particles and allowing for safe removal. Dispose of in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations.

APPLICATION: Test in a small, inconspicuous area before beginning project. Apply a thick layer of Soy Gel with brush, squeegee or commercial airless sprayer. Applying too thin will cause Soy Gel to dry out before removal is complete. When coating begins to buckle, check with scraper to see if it is softened down to the surface. If not, wait longer and recheck. When the coating is completely softened, remove with scraper.
Use BLUE BEAR® Emerge™ 700DG Degreaser for quick and easy clean-up of any residue when finished.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q: Will Soy Gel dry out if left on for long periods of time?
A: Generally Soy Gel will not dry out quickly if left on for long periods of time. If it is left in direct sun light, hot or windy environments, this will accelerate the product drying out. Using a thin mil plastic, and laying it lightly over the product will help keep it moist and working for long periods of time.
Q: How much coverage will I get?
A: Coverage is hard to estimate sometimes without doing a test area. Coverage per square foot varies depending on the type and age of coatings, number of layers, and method of application. Average coverage is estimated at 125 square feet per gallon for horizontal surfaces and 75 square feet for vertical surfaces.
Q: Will Soy Gel remove epoxy coatings?
A: Soy Gel will remove some epoxy and other two part coatings. We suggest doing a test area before starting any project with epoxy or similar coatings.
