RE: Wood/furniture paint stripper

There is an EPA document that may be of use:

Nonprocess Solvent Use in the Furniture Refinishing and Repair   
Industry:Evaluation of Alternative Chemical Strippers

February 1996

You may be able to get this through CERI (513) 569-7562 or NTIS (800   

Alternatives evaluated contained NMP, DBE, d-limonene, Dimethyl adipate.

Subject: Wood/furniture paint stripper

We are searching for what is currently considered the better
wood/furniture paint strippers that do not contain methylene chloride or
e-methyl pyrrolidone (EMP). So far candidates may be Citristrip, Star 10
and Ready Strip. Are these products effective? Are there others that may
be better? Would appreciate all suggestions.
