Clean & Green Technology - No Chemicals!
The Speedheater Infra Red Paint Remover uses infra-red heat to soften multiple layers of paint and varnish quickly and easily for removal from window sills, doors, siding, trim, molding, boats, window shutters, and any many other interior and exterior surfaces. Infra-red heat penetrates deep into the many layers of paint, simultaneously warming all the layers of paint to a consistent temperature, so you can remove many layers in 1 movement.
Safer than old-fashioned heat guns, it heats the paint and varnish to the optimum temperature for removal, approximately 320 - 500 ° F, much cooler than a heat gun's 800 ° F or more.

Place the Speedheater Paint Remover over the area you want to strip for 20 - 60 seconds. When the finish is soft, move the Speedheater to the next area that you want to strip. Scrape the paint and finish from the softened area. When you are done removing the finish, the next area will be soft and ready to scrape, so there is no waiting between areas. This results in very quick and efficient removal of multiple coats of finish.
The Speedheater Method is more than a tool, it is a system for paint and finish removal that has been used for house restoration and boat refinishing in Europe for years, where environmental and safety laws are very strict. Speedheater System accessories include 2-handed scrapers that are designed to be pulled toward the user rather than pushed, resulting in much less hand and arm strain. For vertical and overhead surfaces, there are 2 models of movable arms that hold the Speedheater over the area while it is heated.
