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.

Moffyrr when did you buy yours? Looks like it may have changed around the start of last year!

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.

Post subject: 

yup.. any of the glycol based will do. :D DOT 3, 4, 5.1 ...

Takes a while though. not a quick stripper.

How long is a while? I tried it once overnight, nothing!

Its more of a 'stripper' that you'd apply or soak the thing in, then forget about it for a week.. it's quicker with nitromors!



just :wink:

It depends on the paint to be honest. It also works better on things you dont want to strip. Accidentally pour some over a cop car and it will strip in seconds. but pour it over something you really want to remove the paint off and it'll take forever. guaranteed!

The environment.. and health 'n safety.. is an ass.

Things were so much better when you could proper hurt yourself with the stuff out of your shed.

Haha. Not many people did though. I read its an eu ban.

Theres one.

The new nitromors is a fa*ny. I was doing it with my bare hands. Before that would have burnt. I could probably put it in my bloody eyes now!

New brake fluid is rubbish too, for stripping paint that is.
Paint stripping discs from frosts are pretty good and leave a finish you can prime.

Looking to polish.

I bought some generic stuff from a hardware shop near me in September (ish) which worked a treat, a little runnier than nitromors but still effective, worth hunting around for perhaps? Hopefully they're not enforcing that Dec 11 ban on selling old stock to harshly....

Yeah it is rubbish stuff.
Also more expensive , wilkinson's have the old stuff ,well in Liverpool they do.

Also i got the aerosol version for £1.00 a tin and yet to try it.

Interested to see if the aersol one works.

Havent had a look round for old stuff yet but i think i may know a place.

Whats the distinct differences on the tin?

Frosts do a couple of paint strippers, one of them you leave overnight but works very well.

You need to find a decent local hardware shop and get some of there generic stuff, new nitromoors has been poo for years, best bet is soda blasting though at a local blast co.

Does anyone know how to differentiate the new Nitromors vs. the old one? My local DIY shop says he has old stock out back (whihc I am planning on buying a job lot of) but want to make sure I buy the right one!

Think the new stuff is a different colour, think cyfa mentions it in the first post. Yep the new stuff is green rather than clear.

Where does it say on the tin? I havent got an old vs new one to compare unless its that obvious?

On the back, 3rd tick down.. 'Green Coloured - see where applied'

and on the front 'Non drip formula with colour indicator'

:D

Colour indicates that its crap!


Cheers for that!

Post subject: 

Perfect - thanks for that. Thought the friendly DIY shop owner might become less friendly if I tipped out the contents of each bottle to find out if it was the "good stuff"!

How much does he have?

Isnt it illegal to sell now? mention that and barter with it!

Author:  muppetman [ Wed Jan 11, 2012 6:23 pm ]
Post subject: 

Dunno how much he's got out back - I'll find out when I go in tomorrow. I only want a couple, so if there are any more, I'll try and buy them all and offer them on here for cost.
