Items are dipped in a warm caustic solution then the residue is removed by pressured jet washers.
Caustic paint removers typically sodium hydroxide (also known as caustic soda) works by breaking
down the chemical bonds of the paint.
- chemical stripping gives the best possible result, can be the most gentle on the wood
- caustic stripping will remove most finishes, especially good on thick paint build up
We neutralise your item with acetic acid – sodium hydroxide also known as caustic soda is alkaline
in nature so we recommend your item to be neutralised to a neutral PH level.
The items will be cleaned and sanded by hand for a smoother surface ready to
apply the finish.
After cleaning and sanding the item, a quality wax or oil is applied by hand to protect and bring
out the natural, original colour of the wood
