Peel Away™ Neutralizer

After using the Peel Away® 1 Heavy Duty Paint Remover, the pH level of the surface that was stripped can rise to above 8, which is highly alkaline. The Peel Away™ Neutralizer will help lower the pH to a safe level, anywhere between 5 and 8 on woods that are extremely difficult to neutralize, such as cedar, redwood, and cypress. This pH neutralization is especially important if the paint-stripped surface will be repainted in the future.


Once a surface shows a pH over 8, it should be treated with Dumond’s non-toxic Peel Away™ Neutralizer and left to dry thoroughly. Wait a minimum of seven days before testing the pH levels again and applying any wood finishing product, coating, or paint. To be sure the surface is dry, you can use a moisture meter to test that the moisture content is below 15%, which is then suitable for painting. The best painting can be done when the moisture content is at 12%.


Special Neutralization Precautions for Specific Surfaces:

Cedar, redwood, and cypress have higher water-soluble content than other woods and will need more time to dry between pH neutralization and repainting. If proper care isn’t taken, the delicate wood may stain. For best results, use a high-quality, breathable, waterborne primer that seals in any extractive bleeding discoloration, slowing the threat of moisture problems. Drying time can take up to 60-90 days or longer in some instances, depending on the moisture absorbed by the wood. A moisture meter is the best tool to use in testing the surface before applying any coating to the treated surface.


For masonry surfaces like brick, stone, and stucco, the directions above still apply. In most cases, a single application of Peel Away™ Neutralizer will be sufficient, and a low-pressure wash should be used for cleaning after the Peel Away™ Neutralizer has been applied.
