It is a dry powder. Mix it with water in a five gallon pail, then transfer it to your pump sprayer.
This stripper is most effective at removing wood stains and sealers. This stripper will not remove latex paint. It will remove some oil based paint. There is a sample test kit available. If you are unsure what is on your deck, it is a good idea to test the stripper for effectiveness, before ordering enough to complete the entire job.
For "normal" stripping jobs, you can make 5 gallons of the stripper. Adjust the strength by adding more or less water. The brightener also makes 5 gallons.
Yes! Wear protective gear when using this product. Read all MSDS and first aid material completely before beginning. Knowing what to do if something goes wrong while using HD-80 will help minimize the risk of serious injury. Keep animals away from areas (confined in home is best) where HD-80 is being used. Keep children and bystanders away while using HD-80.
HD-80 will produce chemical burns on plants and grass and will eventually kill them if precautions are not taken. Spray all vegetation with water that is in the vicinity and cover sensitive plants in close proximity with plastic to avoid exposure.

Not only will the end result be less attractive, most assuredly the finish you apply will fail prematurely.
Use Citralic Brightener/Neutralizer to brighten up the wood. This helps to neutralize any sodium hydroxide after stripping. Citralic also returns the wood to it's natural color.
In most cases HD-80 will easily remove mold and mildew. If there is an extreme build up of mold and mildew you can add one cup of bleach per gallon of product. Please note that bleach can damage the wood and should be rinsed as soon as possible. (NEVER mix bleach with EFC-38)
The best method is the dry scratch test. Use a stir stick or similar item to scratch at the finish. When it can easily be removed down to bare wood it is time to rinse.If any stain is still present, reapply HD-80 again until it is easily removed. We recommend that you perform several scratch tests in different areas prior to rinsing.
Depending on the coating you are removing, it can take from just a few seconds to as much as 15 minutes per layer of finish being removed.
The coating will change color and the wood will turn dark. Use a scratch test to determine when the existing finish has been fully emulsified and is ready to strip.
