A technologically advanced paste, formulated to remove fresh or old silicone.

Product overview

Silicone Stripper is suitable to use on sanitary ware, glass, metal, enamel, concrete, plaster, plastics and textiles. Ideal for removing cured silicone smudges, spills and finger prints from poor workmanship. Silicone Stripper can also be used to remove mould growth from the surface of silicones.

It may stain some metal surfaces so we recommend testing a small area prior to application. May cause wood substrates to darken and may soften painted or varnished surfaces and some fabrics (e.g. Nylon).

Frequently Asked Questions

Cured sealant must be removed mechanically with a sharp knife or chemically with Bostik Silicone Stripper. Always test on a small surface first.

No. Alcohol based cleaners should not be used for cleaning surfaces as alcohol inhibits the cure of silicones. Soaps or detergents used to clean the surface must be rinsed away thoroughly with clean water to ensure that all traces of the soaps are removed before sealing.
