BLUE BEAR® Soy Gel™ Paint & Urethane Stripper

  • $24.95

A tried and true customer favorite for more than 25 years, BLUE BEAR® Soy Gel™ Paint & Urethane Stripper works on nearly all types of coatings. Soy Gel paint remover is a gel formula that 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 a home-improvement essential!

  • Removes paint (including lead-based coatings*), varnish, urethane, enamels and more 
  • Convenient to use indoors and outdoors
  • Begins work in as little as 15 minutes
  • Great for DIYers and professionals

Ideal for lead-based paint removal. The lead becomes encapsulated in the gel, preventing airborne particles and allowing for safe removal.  Dispose of in accordance with all existing local, state, and federal ordinances.

DIRECTIONS: Coverage per square foot varies depending on type and age of coating(s), number of layers and method of application. One gallon covers approximately 125 square feet on a horizontal surface and approximately 75 square feet on a vertical surface. 

Use a plastic drop cloth to protect floors and surrounding areas, and/or landscaping if outdoors. Open windows to maintain ventilation of work area. Test Soy Gel in a small, inconspicuous area before beginning full project. (Concrete surfaces may darken with use.) Use a paint brush to apply a thick layer of Soy Gel over the treatment area. Thickness of stripper should exceed thickness of coatings to be removed. Key to success is to apply thick enough. Allow Soy Gel to work until all layers of paint or coating have thoroughly softened. Remove coatings with scraper or wet vacuum. Repeat as necessary.
