Water Soluble and Dissolvable Tape or Blanket Filled with Paint Remover    

The tape is made from PVOH, A water soluble film (much the same as the soluble plastic you find on a dishwasher soap tablet or the new laundry soap ‘PODS’) but filled with paint stripper.


A completely new and unique way to PACKAGE, DELIVER, and APPLY paint remover, and at the same time, increases operational efficiency. Paint strippers (also known as Paint ‘Removers’) can be dangerous to use, difficult to apply, and expensive. One problem inherent with paint stripper is; the active ingredients tend to evaporate before completing its’ objective. Paint stripper is used in the sun by choice to collect the heat and release any fumes when working on furniture, car parts, aircraft, swimming pools, etc.… Stripper can take up to 45 minutes to work but evaporates in as little as 10 minutes. The solution to all these drawbacks is the patented invention; water dis-solvable tape or a blanket filled with paint stripper. This invention stops vital active ingredients from evaporating while completing the task. It is much safer to handle, easy to apply, convenient, quick, environmentally friendly, and economical - plus, it works!
The stripper filled tape/blanket is made with PVOH, a water soluble film (much the same as the new soluble plastic film you find on a dishwasher soap tablets or the new laundry soap ‘PODS’).
Benefits and advantages of the Invention:
1.The tape or blanket acts as a vapor barrier thus eliminating evaporation of active stripper ingredients. This allows single applications to achieve what only many applications of stripper could have achieved otherwise. Therefore, increasing efficiency greatly, and saving money.
2.The tape application is fast, simplifies delivery, and alleviates spraying, rolling or brushing. It also maintains uniform thickness of stripper being used. This Invention opens up many fields of application for strippers to be used which were previously impossible.
3.Reduces the risk of the user coming in dangerous contact with the stripper.
Selling or Licensing into What Target Market
Who would purchase this technology? Stripper Manufacturers, Paint Companies, Marketing Groups, DOT, Hardware, Tool, Aviation Renovation, Automotive Renovation, as well as, the Swimming Pool Industry. In addition, I have developed a completely new approach to be used in the Retail market which has not been exposed yet. Additional applications are currently being developed, and will be announced in the near future.

Primary Application of the Technology

There are a number of fields of use or applications. Fields that produce tens of millions of dollars of paint removal annually such as: Automotive, Aviation, Marine, Swimming Pools, Removing Road Markings/Painted Lines for the DOT, Graffiti, General Construction (small painted houses to large apartment buildings) Retail (big box retailers) and Government. Note of interest - stripping of aircraft accounts for almost one-third of all paint stripping in the USA. This patented process can greatly improve on these procedures. This Invention increases the effectiveness of using stripper in each of the listed fields of use.

The Problem Solved by the Technology

One of the most exciting developments along with DOT painted Road Line Removal is Swimming pools, Swimming Pools need the built-up paint removed before re-plastering or re-painting. Sandblasting is to be outlawed in many areas of the country (due to the dangerous free silica dust laws) and grinding is costly and is time consuming, traditional applications of strippers are volatile to work around. With our invented (large size) stripper "Blanket", simply spray water on the pool surface, roll the large size Blanket on the painted surface, wait the dwell time (this is the time it takes the stripper to dissolve the paint), and then wash it away, very little handling, no smell, quick, safe (almost No VOC's). Lastly and very importantly, it is biodegradable.

For Graffiti; in the industry of removing graffiti many caustic, volatile products are used, these products evaporate quickly resulting in the reapplication as well as serious damage to the substrate. The stripper tape is very user friendly, it is completely contained in the film package, eliminating evaporation along with reducing the need for additional applications. The stripper tape is MUCH safer to use (no splattering during applications) and when used with the "safe formula strippers" easy on the substrate.

How the Technology Solves the Problem

Paint strippers evaporate in as little 10 minutes but need as much as two (2) hours to work resulting in multiple applications wasting time, material, reducing product efficiency. The invention (Water dissolvable tape filled with paint stripper) is completely contained within the water soluble packaging, it stops the evaporation of the active ingredients and allows the stripper to complete its intended job in 'One' Application, up to 20 layers of paint. At the same time reducing VOC's, application time, and splattering, giving remarkable safety environment to the handler/applicator. The tape filled with paint remover comes pre-packaged metering and distributing the exact/correct amount of material to the target area. In addition, because the Stripper Tape or Blanket is never opened, and the handler does not come in contact with dangerous chemicals, this allows the broadening of the user base significantly, especially with users that have a fear of handling paint strippers and chemicals,

Competitive Advantage

Cost effective and efficient - for example:
In the state of North Carolina alone, approximately 3 to 4 million feet of painted road lines are removed each year. There are only 3 methods currently used, all of which damage the asphalt: grinding, high pressure water blasting, and sandblasting. Paint strippers have been used to remove road lines in the past, however, problems arise because the road surface is typically very warm which causes the stripper to evaporate before it has a chance to dissolve the paint. The stripper tape is made with a protective film, "PVOH", which stops evaporation, allowing time for the stripper to destroy the painted line since the stripper remains sealed in the film. When ready, you simply wash it away. This process costs at least half that of the three previously mentioned processes therefore saving significant dollars. Additionally, there are virtually no adverse marks left on the pavement. This Technology will allow Stripper manufacturers to sell in markets that previously had little success or simply were untouchable.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Dissolvable Film used to package the Stripper Tape Biodegradable, Safe? - Yes, very! it is being used in certain food products on an increasing bases. How many layers of paint can the Tape or blanket remove? - up to 20 in a single application. What is the cost compared to traditional applications? - Much less, even after the added cost of packaging.
Why is water the only solvent that dissolves the Tape/Blanket? - This is because the PVOH film or the "plastic looking packaging" is a Phenol Base material (Nick Name "Warm Solid Water") it does not Dissolve with traditional solvents like Paint thinner, Lacquer Thinner, Acetone, Gasoline, Dichloroethane, Diesel Fuel, Alcohol, NMP, MEK, DBE's, etc... It is Simply safe, and dissolves with the universal solvent - Water (H20). What are the applications? - Anywhere Paint Stripper/Remover is used and more. What types of paint removers does the tape/Blanket contain inside the film? - It is being produced with the newer Biodegradable "Safe DBE" Type strippers, as well as, Methylene Chloride, Potassium Hydroxide Base and Benzyl Alcohol.
