Product Description


Eastwood DOWN TO METAL® Stripper is non-flammable and strips most finishes from metal surfaces quickly and cleanly.

  • Strip finish while still wet or allow to dry for quick, easy cleanup and disposal
  • Simple and direct brush-on application
  • Contains Methylene Chloride
  • Works great wet or dry.
  • When allowed to dry, it becomes a simple strip and discard process.

Eastwood DOWN TO METAL® Stripper is a fast, efficient and economical method of removing all types of finishes from metal surfaces of aircraft, automobiles, and trucks-wet or dry. This nonflammable stripper will remove acrylics, enamels, lacquers, polyurethanes/urethanes, and waterborne coatings while being non-corrosive to metal under normal exposure time. When allowed to dry, will not allow the old paint to re-adhere to the metal surface. This eliminates the undesirable and messy job of scraping wet paint remover from surfaces and the old method of washing wet stripper down the drain, which is hazardous to the environment. The dry mass, after scraped from the metal surface, can be swept from the floor and the biodegradable mass discarded in accordance with local, state, and federal laws.


Using a brush, apply stripper in one direction using thin coats since heavy or thick coats may cause old finish to run into unwanted areas. Thin coats work best for wet stripping while medium coats are recommended for dry stripping. On vertical surfaces it is recommended to start brushing from the bottom of the panel and work upwards.Should be used when the temperatures are between 65-90F and away from strong breezes and sunlight for best results.


Less Mess - Less WorkReview by Shorty
Put to use same day arrived - “Down to the metal” Eastwood paint remover - pickup cab stripped in a couple hours over 2 nights. Is very mess free - went in and watched TV while it did its thing - then scrapped it off dry after a couple of hours. Most def took off the 5 year old - roller applied - matte black Rustoleum and the red “rusty metal” Rustoleum primer under that easily all at once. That got me back to rusty metal to work again. Actually worked best on the vertical - spreading from the bottom up as recommended. (Posted on 01/06/2018)
It Works!Review by quietguy
I decided to try this stuff out because I hate the sloppy mess of most strippers. I am stripping a 65 mustang that has 2 paint jobs on it, the factory one, and some junk that looks like MAACO or Earl Schieb. Probably 30 years old. When applied correctly, this stuff really strips the paint! And the dry feature works pretty darn good for me. I put this stuff on per directions, then walk away for 30 - 60 min or whatever. Paint comes off easily, does not re-adhere when the stuff dries, and even on heavily painted, primed, and re-painted areas, this stuff gets down to the metal quickly. Never had to do more than 2 applications. (Posted on 01/06/2018)
