Paint Strippers To Be Banned? - Nitromors No More

Paint strippers including Nitromors will soon be banned in Europe if the EU legislation gets their way. Due to a key ingredient used in many paint strippers and graffiti removers, DCM (Methylene Chloride), the European Union has put forward a a proposed legislation to ban DCM and therefore all products that contain it.

The European Commission have failed to properly research the technical requirements and experience of businesses that use paint strippers and removers, and of those in building care and conservation who rely on the services of such businesses. Virtually none have been consulted.

Currently over 90% of all paint strippers and graffiti removal products on the market today contain DCM and banning all of them would leave a rather large hole in the market.
