Madison Chemical introduces Stripper Q-17, a premium, powdered, heavy-duty alkaline paint stripper for ferrous metals. This versatile product can also remove light rust and coatings such as varnish, lacquer, alkyd and acrylic. 

It has cleaning properties and disperses particulate and oily soils as well as paint pigments, making it suitable for a variety of cleaning, maintenance, restoration/refurbishment projects and applications within industrial, manufacturing and metalworking facilities.

For best results use Stripper Q-17 at 12-40 oz/gallon of water at a temperature from 175° F to boiling. Immersion tanks should be steel with a good heat capacity. Depending on the tenacity of the finish being removed, immersion time may vary from a few minutes to a half-hour or more.
