The more layers of paint on concrete window sills the more arduous the task of removing them. That is particularly cogent in relation to the traditional methods of stripping paint which are neither safe nor fully effective. Trade painters have had to live with this unsatisfactory situation for an eternity, spending laborious hours painstakingly removing paint from concrete window sills with these inefficient and unsafe methods.The different methods available have their own particular drawbacks. Heat treatment is a slow process often producing noxious vapours, fumes and smoke that can irritate eyes and the respiratory system. Even with the protection of a breathing mask and goggles you can still experience unpleasant effects. Another traditional method is deployment of mechanical means such as manual or electrical sanding machines. These by their very design emit clouds of material dust and even the more sophisticated models with dust bag attachments still release dust which again causes reactions such as sneezing and eye irritation. The third and probably most used option is solvents. These are a very harsh method which is unsafe and emits strong chemical odours that are not only unpleasant but can cause irritated airways and stinging eyes. The painting and decorating community have long awaited a better solution to paint stripping that is safe effective and fast. A new way to strip paint from concrete has recently appeared thanks to the R&D work of C Tec who have invented a new product that ticks all the requisite boxes for the Construction and Painting industries.
