Product Description

Soy Gel is a safe industrial strength and consumer friendly paint, varnish, and urethane remover made with 100% American grown soybeans. It is non-flammable, non-caustic, nearly odorless and is effective on wood, concrete, stone, brick and metal surfaces. The low evaporation rate of SoyGel and its gel formulation make it possible to remove several layers of paint in one application. During the removal of lead based paint, lead becomes encapsulated in the gel, preventing airborne lead particles, allowing for safe and easy disposal. SoyGel does not discolor nor raise the grain of wood. The gel formula also allows for use on vertical and horizontal surfaces. SoyGel contains no methylene chloride, is not an alkaline based stripper and cleans up easily with water. Unlike more traditional paint strippers SoyGel lets you work without the odor. Indoors or outdoors, you can be guaranteed a safe restoration process with SoyGel.

It has a very mild odor and it doesn't irritate my skin.

Soy Gel Pain and Uretahan Remover/Stripper is by far the best product I've ever used.
Deborah Ortega
Best to apply a thick coat with a paintbrush and wait a few hours.

My boyfriend and I recently bought a house that has a brick fireplace that was painted. We really enjoy the warmth of a fire all winter long and want to put in a wood stove insert. We had a chimney inspector come and among other things flagged the paint on the fireplace as a fire hazard for the wood stove! I couldn't believe it.

I have to tell others what worked for us. After the removing process, we learned that there were 5 layers of paint on the fireplace! White, Mint Green, Creamy Yellow, Brown and another new layer of white paint.

I selected SoyGel becuase we needed to be in the house while it was working We did a test spot first to see how long we could leave this gel on before it hardened. Well it still hasn't hardened and the longer we leave it on the easier the paint comes off.

The first layer wrinkled up and peeled off just like a layer of latex. Looked kind of like Chewed Gum. The next 4 layers were easily removed with a small putty knife by scraping the brick.

Then we took a wire brush and brushed our hearts out to reveal some really nice red brick with a few black bricks throughout.

The process went much faster than I anticipated and we did apply the gel every time we were done peeling and scraping for that session. The more you put on the more effective it was.

It is very messy so make sure you have everything well covered.

Hope this helps.

First of all, the shipping was quick. And since the USPS was able to ship it overseas to an APO box, it isn't that dangerous.

Second, very low odor, no irritation of the skin or lungs - a big difference from methyl chloride, MEK strippers.

Third, water soluble. I haven't noticed any drying problems that wouldn't be associated with putting water on wood. And clean up is a dream compared to Zip-Strip, among others. I'd never put the rags in the washer otherwise. (They're clean.)

Lastly, it doesn't need continual watching. It stays wet while you have lunch! Seems to "re-activate" easily, should one have to wait overnight. I covered it with Saran wrap (which didn't dissolve) and went right to work in the morning.

I tested this on the paint used on refilled natural gas bottles. After ten minutes the paint looked new. After half an hour, the metal was clean. A light sanding and it was ready to paint.

I used a wet tooth brush to clean varnished window mouldings after 20 minutes with the stripper, and wiped up with a rag. After drying it was ready to paint.

Too good to be true...has to be. I am still skeptical, but ordering two more gallons ASAP. Hope this helps.

I love this product! I am stripping all the wood in my 100+ year old house. I don't need gloves, there is no odor so I can work even in the middle of winter with the house closed up. It is very easy to use. I wouldn't use anything else.

That's why I only gave it 2 stars. I normally use Citristrip but decided to try SoyGel. The SoyGel ate through two coats of paint and one coat of primer on some wooden cabinet doors/drawers. I left it on the different pieces anywhere from 8 to 24 hours with a thin plastic drop cloth draped over everything to keep the stripper from drying out. After scraping most of the paint off on the first try, I was left with a gooey/oily mess the texture of runny eggs. This was the remainder of the primer coat plus the soy gel. I had to use a new rag/paper towel with each wipe. Otherwise, I was just smearing the leftover primer coat plus soy gel back across the wood again. There is no way that this stuff can be removed with just water like the container says so I purchased some degreaser (not Franmar's). Even with the degreaser applied, I still could not get enough of the mess off of the wood for it to not feel oily. Maybe this product would work well for something that you could hose down afterward (although that probably would not be good for wood) but that was not an option for me. This product is much different than Citristrip. It has an oily base that does not irritate the skin and does not dry out and also a thicker viscosity than the Citristrip (all of which are good qualities). However, I found it MUCH more difficult to clean it off of the wood. The Citristrip can be removed with odorless mineral spirits - not my favorite thing in the world but at least it cleans the wood off. It seemed now matter how much degreaser and/or water I applied afterward, the wood still felt like it had an oily residue on it.

I have been in preservation for over fifteen years and have tried all manner of chemical and mechanical stripping tools for paint removal. Although soy-gel is not as fast as the methelyene chlorides it is by far the fastest "natural" stripper available. It is the safest for the user, altough gloves are recommended it does not burn on contact and does not melt plastic tools. I found that if a surface has a mixture of paints i.e. oil, and latex, usually the latex is ontop the soy-gel softens the latex first, pulling it away from the underlying paints preventing it from softening the oil/lead paints below. After this is removed another application of soy-gel removes the rest of the paint. Clean up although messy is simple, just water I recommend 3M pads. Be sure to collect the waste water and dsipose of it in accordance with local regulations regarding hazardous waste, especially if you are removing lead paint. This is where most chemical strippers shine it contains the lead paint in the gel keeping it wet and thereby eleminating friable particulates that one could breathe in, or have settle on ones clothes. It does have a chemical smell so if indoors be sure the space is ventillated, I am not aware if the smell has any side effects. On vertical surfaces be sure to protect the floor below with plastic sheeting, (soy-gel will run a bit), this also helps with cleanup during the process and at the end. In all an excellent product with few short comings. Happy stripping.
