Think still the best
12 May 2016
By
, Loughborough
" Having not used varnish/paint striper for a long while I turned to what I as a trade person considered the best and was not disappointed. The price at which it is marketed at via screwfix makes buying from internet not worth while ( well done screwfix )
It removed the very hard varnish from a restaurant table top with great easy, but had to wait a while longer that it said but never the less did the trick "

" Does exactly what it says on a tin.
High price is the only issue

does what it says

" decent, does what it says, not too messy and easy to clean. Used it for skirting boards and its probably better for fiddly bits that a hot air gun but the gun was much better for flat surface, MUCH better. "

More EEC rules..
15 Sep 2015
By
, Hertfordshire
" Sadly a European ruling has ruined another worthwhile product, as compared to the old unimproved version, the new remedy is very poor, so much so, I have been in touch with their technical service dept, their reply is that the formula has been altered due to a ruling from Brussels... "

Works but not all that well
21 Mar 2014
By
, Inverclyde
" This did remove silk emulsion paint on skirting boards but it only worked a layer at a time. As there were a few layers it took a long time and used a lot of product to do the job. Not surprised it comes in such a large 4L can
You need a lot to do a little
With a final sanding the skirting boards did come up nice so all in all it's not a waste of money it does work just not a quick as the marketing info suggests "

better off with another produc
6 Jun 2013
By
, east sussex
" having used nitromors before, and had exceptional results, i purchased some to remove paint from spindles on a free standing mirror. unfortunately due to the safe use of chemicals, all the good additives have been removed, what is left is a gel that is useless, better to go back to the hot air gun and scraper.

" tried this stuff on a wooden door, took the top layer off only and took ages to work. I then tried it on a piece of painted metal and it hardly touched it. very week on tough jobs. for the cost I was expecting a better job.

Not 100% stronger
12 Dec 2012
By
, Seaford
" It says in the description that it is 100% stronger than the old Nitromors... I would have to disagree... I have used the old nitromors often and it did a job in one go on two or three coats of paint. This new one needs to be repeated at least once more and at the price it is not worth it. A hot air gun is a much better option these days. "

Side by side test.
8 Dec 2013
By
, Deal, Kent
" I've just had the opportunity to test old and new Nitromors on the same wood with the same paint and I can confirm what others have said here. The new version isn't even have as good as the old. The new stuff dries out before lifting the paint. Frankly I feel like I've wasted my money on this new formula stuff.
I am tempted to order some Dichloromethane and try adding that to the new Nitromors to see if that improves it. "

Near useless paint stripper
4 Oct 2013
By
, Suffolk
" This new 'Advanced super strength formula' Nitromors which does not contain dichloromethane takes twice as long to blister and needs two applications to get the same result as the 'new improved' Nitromors which contains dichloromethane which I used last year.
The same job takes four times as long!

Don't believe the hype...
8 Aug 2013
By
, Glasgow
" ...and if you do not believe the other negative reviews, here is another.
What irritates me most is that claim about being more powerful, I can only assume that tests were carried out on paint/varnish types that would give a positive result therefore justifying the claim.
As someone the once ran a paint shop catering to motorcycle renovation and customising (automotive paint), I used the original product every week for 5 plus years and it would remove the most stubborn of paints, it is now complete guff in this regard.
I cannot comment on it's effects on non-solvent based paint's as I have never tried it, but if it only works on such paint types it should state that on the can.
Maybe it does...need to check that. "

" Compared to the old Nitromors this new formula is rubbish. It takes multiple coats to strip paint whereas it used to take only 1 or 2 with the old formula. I won't be buying this again. "
