EU legislation is shortly to come into force which effectively prohibits the sale of Methylene Chloride Paint Strippers from retail sale. Decision No 455/2009/EC Of The European Parliament And Of The Council Of 6th May 2009 Amending Council Directive 76/769/EEC, dictates that as from 6th December 2010, we are unable to supply Paint/Varnish Stripper in the current formulation. However, sales to the general public are permitted for a further twelve months, to 6th December 2011, meaning there should be an adequate period for our customer’s shelves to be cleared.

Bartoline has been working on alternative formulations for some time and we believe we will have the best product in the market when we launch our brand new highly innovative TX10 PAINT/VARNISH STRIPPER during the summer.

TX10 is a highly effective non Methylene Chloride formulation, which is not flammable and is biodegradable. As the product is water based, there is minimal evaporation. It clings 100% to vertical surfaces, hence no drips, runs or waste. It is suitable for use both indoors and out, by serious professional and novice DIYers.

A generous coating is applied by brush to the surface to be stripped and left for approximately 30 minutes. For areas where there are more than five layers, a second coat maybe be necessary. Once TX10 has penetrated to the substrate, it can be scraped off leaving the surface clean. The stripped area can then be rubbed down using sandpaper, steel wool or a scrubbing brush.

TX10 will be available in 500 ml, 1 litre, 2.5 litre and 5 litre HDPE containers in a brand new shelf appealing livery.
