QCAR30397 – Quart VOC Compliant

Adhesive Remover

Citristrip® Adhesive Remover is a strong formula for removing adhesives from wood, concrete, metal and masonry.  It contains no methylene chloride, is low V.O.C., non-caustic, and biodegradable. Its low odor makes it the right choice for indoor use. Citristrip® Adhesive Remover stays wet and active for up to 24 hours, allowing stripping of large areas in one step. With a thick coat, it can be allowed to work overnight. Removes most mastics, contact cement, floor covering adhesives, asphalt & latex adhesives in 1 to 3 hours. Covers 10-15 sq. ft. per quart.

Directions For Use:

  1. Pull up linoleum, tiles or paneling.
  2. Wear chemical-resistant gloves, chemical splash goggles and appropriate work shoes. Shake well before opening can.
  3. Pour remover onto the adhesive to be stripped. Spread with a long-handled paint roller to obtain a thick even layer at least 1/16” thick. Do not step on the area, as it may be slippery. Leave the area and let the remover do the work. Do not allow the remover to completely dry on the surface as the adhesive can re-adhere.
  4. After 1-3 hours, scrape a small test area to see if the adhesive is softened and ready for removal. If so, use a long-handled sidewalk scraper or floor hoe to scrape the loosened adhesive. Any remover that is still liquid can be pushed onto another area and reused. If the remover and adhesive form a thick gel or solid material, use a broom and dustpan to pick up the material and take it outside to fully dry. Before the scraped area is completely dry, use a mop with soapy water to get up any residue after scraping.
