Piranha 2 is a fast acting, solvent based paint remover. Fiberlock Piranha 2 attacks up to 30 layers of lead-based paint in a single application. Piranha 2 will also remove the most difficult oil and latex paints, varnishes, shellacs, lacquers, and enamels.
Piranha 2 is non-flammable and will not raise the grain of wood or corrode metals. This product does not require anti-evaporation paper like many caustics and other weaker solvent formulas.
Warning! If you scrape, sand, or remove old paint from any surface, you may release lead dust. LEAD IS TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO LEAD DUST CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ILLNESS, SUCH AS BRAIN DAMAGE, ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN. PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD ALSO AVOID EXPOSURE. Wear a NIOSH approved respirator to control lead exposure.
Carefully clean up with a wet mop and HEPA vacuum.
Before you start, find out how to protect yourself and your family by contacting the U.S. EPA/Lead Information Hotline at 1-800-424-LEAD (5323) or visit www.epa.gov/lead.
For indoor application, open all windows and doors or use other means to assure a constant supply of fresh moving air during use. Ideal working temperature is between 65°- 85°F. Avoid direct sunlight. Protect floor coverings and other areas not being stripped. Do not use on synthetic fabrics, plastic, linoleum, asphalt, foam products or rubber tile.
Apply Piranha 2 with brush or airless spray equipment.
Stir well before using. Open pail carefully to avoid splashing. For best results, test a small area to determine the appropriate thickness, and duration of time required to most effectively remove the lead-based paint.
Brush on a thick layer in one direction for best results. Brushing back and forth opens up the anti-evaporation barrier, which forms on the initial pass.
Allow Piranha 2 to work 5-15 minutes before performing a test scrape to determine how much paint has been lifted. Once Piranha 2 finishes removing the paint from the surface, scrape it away with putty knife, cloth or steel wool. Clean substrate with a mild detergent solution to remove any residues. Collect waste in a metal container and dispose of all waste in accordance with existing regulations. Piranha 2 does not require a neutralizer.
Smooth Surfaces: 100 sq. ft./gal.

Clean tools with a mild detergent solution to remove any residues. Dispose of all waste according to all existing local, state and federal regulations.
