How to strip paint from a metal guttering downpipe.

The major concern with a repainting job in this particular instance is how to strip paint safely and efficiently from a metal guttering downpipe. The first consideration is to find a solution that is compatible with the metal material and will remove the paint without causing surface damage. In essence you need a product that covers all bases in getting the job done effectively. Looking around at all available options there is the burning issue that all traditional methods are both unsafe and inefficient. A solution is required that is easily applicable, will dissolve the paint into an easily removable residue and will provide a paint ready surface receptive to a new coat of paint. A metal guttering downpipe is an essential tool in directing rain water from the roof to a storm drain. To keep this piece of equipment in good working order it is imperative to maintain it, ensuring it is well protected against the elements. The best protection is a good coat of paint which requires renewal on a regular basis to sustain the downpipe’s integrity and prolong its longevity. The main issue with a repaint job is how to remove the old worn paint safely and effectively. If this is not done properly you risk compromising the efficacy of a new paint application. Paint applied to a damaged, dirty or wet metal surface can bubble, hold water and cause metal corrosion which over time will eat through the downpipe. Prevention is always better than cure and is much more cost effective than having to replace the downpipe. The challenge is finding an alternative working solution to the inefficient, unsafe traditional methods of : Heat treatment, Mechanical Sanding and Solvents.
