Gently, quickly and easily remove paint from wood

When it’s time to repaint an exterior or other surface, it’s important to completely remove all old paint. There are many differet methods to remove paint, and new technology has made it easier. The most common method is to use heat to remove paint using a heat gun that works at a very high temperature. What a lot of people don’t know is that the high temperature damages wood and has a negative impact on the user’s health. That’s why Speedheater developed a method that is easy to use and that doesn’t damage the wood or the user. The solution was the Speedheater IR System, which has now become the unbeatable method for removing paint with heat that’s faster, easier and more environmentally friendly.

Remove paint with an IR light

Heat paint using infrared light

Hold the IR light briefly over the area you want to remove paint from. You’ll see almost immediately that the paint will begin to react.

Unlike a traditional heat gun, no hazardous substances are released from the heated paint. The IR light also penetrates into nooks and crannies easily, which means that even carved wooden furniture can be completely stripped down to its wooden structure. In addition to paint, IR also removes old window putty, varnish, glue, etc.

Scrape off the softened paint

IR radiation penetrates several layers of paint, often all the way down to the underlying surface in one go. The heat is high enough to soften the paint, but not high enough to release toxins from the paint or burn wood surfaces. The softened paint scrapes off almost effortlessly, which means there’s no risk of scratching or damaging the underlying surface with the paint scraper.

Repaint clean wood surfaces

Repaint right away

Since no solvent is needed and because the surface is already dry and smooth after scraping, there’s no need to wait before repainting.

Why is it important to remove old paint?

If you paint directly on top of old, peeling paint, your new coat of paint won’t last very long, and the end result won’t look as good as it could otherwise. By quickly and easily removing old paint using heat, you’ll save yourself a lot of future headache. To ensure your new paint lasts and protects the underlying surface, it’s important to be thorough with all the prep work in order to achieve long-lasting, beautiful results. Remove outdoor paint faster and more efficiently with our unbeatable method, which save you time and energy.
