Removing coatings, non-silicone based waxes, greases, and other heavily soiled equipment:
1. Spray apply VpCI-414.
VpCI-414 can be applied at full strength or diluted. It is best applied by spraying or immersion. The most ideal dilution, where one would get an adequate coverage of wet film for vertical and under-hanging surfaces, is 40% water to 60% concentrate. VpCI-414 can be sprayed with an airless or pump type sprayer, or used in a dip tank. Let the product stand (wet) for 10-15 minutes, depending on the film thickness of the product to be removed and the length of time that the coating has cured. Reapplication may be required.
2. Removal of product and coating
The removal of the product and coating may be accomplished with a power washer at the following settings or even a common garden nozzle. Pressure: 50-300 psi (3.4-21 bar) Temperature: 115º-160ºF (46º-71ºC).
If coating removed is tacky or remains tacky in patches repeat step 1.
