Paint stripper Paint Remover, is the common name given to solvent mixtures manufactured to eliminate paint along with other finishes and also to clean the underlying surface. The principal active ingredient is usually dichloromethane. Formulations with orange oil (or other terpene solvents), N-methylpyrrolidone, esters such as dibasic esters (often dimethyl esters of shorter dicarboxylic acids, sometimes aminated, for example, adipic acid or glutaamic acid), aromatic hydrocarbons, dimethylformamide, and other solvents are known as well. The formula differs according to the type of paint and the character of the underlying surface. Nitromethane is another commonly used solvent. Dimethyl sulfoxide is a less toxic alternative solvent used in some formulations. Paint strippers normally come in a liquid, or a gel (“thixotropic”) form which clings even to vertical surfaces.

The principle of paint strippers is penetration of the paint film by the molecules of the active ingredient, resulting in its swelling; this volume increase causes internal strains, which will, along with the weakening of the layer’s adhesion and the underlying surface, leads to the separation of the layer of the paint from the substrate.
