Is rubbish. Its the stuff thats still in the green tin but the actual substance is green now rather than almost clear (jelly like).
I read that an ingredient has been banned from it. Used it to strip my orange patriot frame - now i know this paintjob is going to be good but nitromors used to just bubble the paint off within 5-10 minutes i found (on a kona, a gt, a handsome dog and couple others. So also youd expect decent paint jobs on them).
Now it makes the paint kind of rubbery but after about 1 and a half hours. Rubbish! Taken me ages to get all the little bits off and it not even finished yet.

Hmmm.

Yep, better off with a blankety blank chequebook and pen.

Stripping my Mercian off took an age with Nirtomors. Sacked it and went to a wire brush drill bit.

sounds like fun :lol: Is it cold where you are using it just wonder if it would work better in a warmer place. Not the front room that will just piss your good lady off no end.

Bought mine about 2 months ago.

I remember the old stuff working.. this stuff is just plain cr*p!

I moaned a while back about the fact the tin says not for automotive paint, yet Hellfords sell it in the motoring paint stripping section...

Brake fluid (car stuff) works a treat on car paint.
