Removing varnish from a material surface should be a straightforward process if you find the right product that ticks all the requisite boxes. What constitutes the right product can be defined in terms of safety and technical effectiveness. The starting point in searching for the perfect solution is to look at what has been historically available as varnish remover options. With traditional methods of removing varnish there are reservations both from a safety and technical efficiency perspective. Many products contain Methyl Chloride which is not safe and therefore cannot be endorsed while others simply do not measure up to expectations on the technical front – they do not remove the varnish sufficiently cleanly to allow the material surface to be effectively and smoothly revarnished. If we consider the traditional methods of removing varnish we can appreciate their lack lustre capabilities and inherent weaknesses. Mechanical methods involving electric and manual sanding options present challenges in terms of labour intensity. They also create dust emissions that can cause respiratory problems. With heat treatment there is the inherent problem of scorching which can be exacerbated through the use of a blowtorch- indiscriminately burning a wood surface, causing unpleasant fumes and smoke which can irritate the respiratory system and even sting eyes. Finally, solvents, which are very harsh agents, can damage material surfaces through caustic effects and create unpleasant or even toxic vapours that can all pose a health risk to operatives and third parties. The question on your lips at this juncture is – “ is there a safe effective solution to varnish removal on the market yet?”
