Is ok if you want to remove only a few layers of paint. On the plus side is very quick and easy to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dewey Didn't work at all
Bought it to help remove a small amount of old paint that had lead in it to avoid fumes and lead paint dust. Followed instructs to the letter. Didn't seem to do any more than soften the paint very slightly. Waste of money.

Purchased for my sons, one of which is a qualified decorator, to remove paint from an old door. As a result there were (probably) many layers of paint.
Followed instructions to the letter and even watched a video on line posted by Polycell on how to use the product.
Result - waste of time. Possible to remove paint in patches but only the first and maybe second layer. Does not crust like it showed in the video and only bubbled up in patches.
My son DID follow instructions and maybe if a small patch was done it may have worked. Problem is, how long would it take to do an entire door?
Bought instead a decent heat gun and he managed to strip both sides in just over two hours!
Work it out for yourself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TommyTommster Does the trick well
Surprised at how good this was. The gel formulation is nice in that it stick well and doesn't drip
