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
