Professional Quality Artex Remover

Instructions for Removing Artex

Apply generously over the Artexed areas with a brush.
Leave until Artex has completely softened (This can take several hours depending upon ambient temperature and thickness of Artex)
Remove softened Artex with a scraper. 
Repeat process as necessary. 

NOTE: If the Artex is heavily painted, it is advisable to remove the paint first with Biostrip PLUS prior to using Artex Remover.

Allow to dry thoroughly before refinishing.

500g will cover up to 2-3 sq metres.

Durostrip Artex Remover is suitable for use on walls and ceilings

TIP: Let Durostrip do the work, cover the treated surfaces with cheap polythene dust sheets, to prevent drying out, and leave over night. 

NOTE: Although this product is effective at softening artex, by its very nature artex removal is a fairly physical job. This should be taken into consideration before starting any project of this type.

Great product.
Just tried this out. Really happy with the results. Review by Ged / (Posted on 16/10/2015)
An easy fix
I had a leak a year ago that left a patch of artex looking really nasty. I brought a small pot of this stuff and it got it off really easy. I then just patched it with some filler and painted it again. Looks a lot nicer now. Review by Nick / (Posted on 28/09/2015)
Very good
We get through a lot of Artex removal as part of our asbestos removal services. Have used a number of alternative softeners and strippers over the years. This one is very good. Review by PR Andrews / (Posted on 03/09/2015)

Easier than I thought
I had a patch of artex under the stairs that was really irritating me and with a spare weekend coming up I ordered the product. I didn't know what to expect, but when I opened the tub it was a clear slightly sticky liquid. I painted it on and then left it. Came back the next day and it just scraped off. I used a scraper and a brush to get it all off. Satisfied and looking for my next job, this was easier than expected Review by HIckey / (Posted on 24/08/2015)
Works well
I had used the paint stripper before on a couple of jobs and it worked well. This product didn't disappoint Review by Mr Talbot / (Posted on 21/08/2015)
Did the job
I didn't know what to use for artex until I looked on the internet and found a confusing array of options. Having used paint stripper before this looked the easy choice I didn't fancy steaming it off. did the job, I bought 5 Litres and it did my ceiling Review by Teddy / (Posted on 20/08/2015)
