Southport, Merseyside, 23rd April 2012 : Paint removal Solutions (www.paint-removal.co.uk) is pleased to announce that it offers eco friendly paint stripper products to the general public. These paint removal products are safe to humans and pets and very effective as a paint stripper on a variety of surfaces. They also meet the new safety guidelines as established by the UK Health and Environmental Risk Committee.
UK residents may or may not be aware that the Health and Environmental Risk Committee reported that exposure to Dichloromethane (DCM) can be unhealthy to humans. DCM is contained in many of the major brands of paint strippers and has been banned for purchase by both individuals and professionals as of December 2011. The committee reported that DCM exposure may be accomplished by absorption through inhalation as well as through the skin. Exposure may cause a narcotic effect as well as cause depression of the central nervous system.
Because of these health risks, new paint stripper formulations had to be created that are safe for both the public and for professionals. Paint Removal Solutions did just that. They spent a considerable amount of time and effort in developing their waterbased paint remover that is now being offered for sale via their online store. Their eco friendly waterbased paint remover is also effective in removing varnish and can be safely used on a variety of surfaces such as wood, plastic, metal, brick, glass, aluminum, and many other surfaces as well.
