How do you remove latex paint from a concrete floor?
I would power wash it with a medium jet spray.
Most latex paints state that they should not be used below grade so it's probably not a good idea. The reason behind it is that the moisture from the concrete can make the paint peel.
It depends on whether it is a water (latex) based paint or a oil based paint. If it is oil based paint it may not come out, but if it is a water (latex) based paint use 'Goof Off' or other latex paint removers with a wire brush. I have used 'Muriatic acid' on some concrete appications.
Latex paint can stick to the floor grouting.
I wouldn't recommend it. Some of the chemicals in the alkyd will dissolve the latex and the alkyd won't "stick". It's best to remove the latex using laquer thinner or xylene first.
I spoke to the one paint dealer I have confidence in and was told yes I can do exactly that i.e. put a latex (not sure about alkyd) two part epoxy coating over my concrete latex floor paint. First I sanded the surface to get a better bond and my next move is to clean the floor. As a suggestion be sure you have a concrete paint on the floor. If not you could have… Read More
i have dried white latex paint on car seat. what do i do to remove it?
Muriatic acid will do it,but take extreme care - it can be very dangerous to use
Yes! The muriatic acid will remove epoxy paint on a concrete floor. Usually the epoxy paint will bubble up and will require a flat-blade or wire brush to full remove and.... repeat as necessary. be sure to nuetralize the floor when finished with (1pound of baking soda to 5 gallons of water). I got this reference from http://foundationarmor.com and it worked!
You can. make sure you use a scraper to remove the paint chips that are sticking up, and a sander to roughen the current coat so the new coat will stick.
If I was going to repaint this, then I'd remove both the latex and the old oil base with a chemical stripper. Then re-prime it and paint.
The best way to remove dry latex paint is by using a commercial grade paint remover. These can be purchased at home improvement stores like Lowe's.
Latex paint can be washed off of skin by scrubbing with soap and warm water.
You can not put oil paint over latex paint. Oil is a rigid coating and latex is a flexible coating. When you put a rigid coating over something that is flexible the rigid coating cracks off.
I suggest you either try to power wash it, or if that doesn't work, find the right color paint and paint over the stain
You could try asking the question on the website of a major paint manufacturer, where you will get good but conservative advice. Water-blasting is a simple method, but only for sound concrete, otherwise you could erode loose concrete. Solvents are another possibility, but take care with vapours if indoors, and of fire sources nearby.
No. Muriatic acid will not remove paint from concrete. Muriatic acid will etch bare concrete though.
You should first power wash it to remove all greasy deposits. Next paint it with Garage Floor Primer, then after a day, with Garage Floor Concrete paint. All of these products are available in Rona and Home Depot.
You should never paint an oil based paint over a latex paint. Oil based paints are meant to absorb and dry into the surface. If you were to paint an oil based paint over a latex based paint it would simply dry and flake off. For more information on when to use a latex or oil based paint please see the following article. http://www.ehow.com/how_4713170_between-latex-oil-base-paint.html
Possibly if it's latex paint.
I found out that Rubbing alcohol will remove dried latex paint on hard wood floors.
Yes you can. Substitute 20% of the water for the cement mix with latex paint (Water based paint) and mix slow and thorough. Don't over used too much paint it will damage the integrity of the concrete.
If it is vinyl tile and it's latex paint, rubbing alcohol will remove it. If it is a ceramic or porcelain tile, you can carefully scrape it off or if it is also latex paint, the same thing,,,alcohol will remove it.
Baby oil will remove oil and latex paint from skin. It will not remove paint from most rigid substrates though.
I'm taking a guess that it is Latex Paint. The best and fastest way would be to use a Paint Scraper. Stripper would work but it would take the Final Finish off of your floor. If it is a large area, you could use a Heat Gun...carefully as that also would take the Clear protecting coat off of the floor. I would go with the paint scraper. Not a Putty Knife, a Paint Scraper.
As long as the concrete paint is 100% acrylic paint, it can be used on wood decking. However, it may not be as durable as a floor or deck paint.
To remove latex paint from a bed-liner I would try a decent pressure washer. If you find the latex paint is not lifting from the indentations in the bed-liner then you want to ensure the surface is dry. Use Spray Nine and some elbow grease followed by a final rinse.
brown or white
Garage floor paint, with suitable primer.
The ingredient in glossy paint is acrylic. You cannot remove that ingredient.
Wash the paint with warm water. When it is soaked, use a strong comb.
A sandblaster or sanding disc
Hot soapy water and a sponge.
You can try sandblasting it.
try reading the label.
You can use a product that is called Goof Off to get latex paint off of vinyl siding. You cannot use paint thinner or abrasives because they can scar or damage the siding.
You can remove latex paint with denatured alcohol. (You should be able to find it in a hardware store.) I do not know how denatured alcohol would react on cowhide. I would suggest testing a very small spot to check the results before proceeding with paint removal.
It depends on the type of paint. Lacquer thinner will remove most oil based and latex paints from a paint sprayer, however, spray gun cleaner will remove it better.
Enamel paint can only be mixed with latex paint if the latex paint also has enamel in it. If the latex paint is oil based then it can not be mixed with enamel paint.
Latex paint can go over oil based, but oil based CANNOT go over latex. Oil based paint soaks into the surface being painted (like a wood porch floor) but latex only coats the surface. not true, it's the opposite. See discussion I have been teaching oil painting for 25+years.
yes because latex paint is latex paint
you can paint over latex paint with latex enamel.
use wd40 and with a fine window scrapper scrap off. If you scratch the tile use a hair dryer over it this heats the tile and it remolds its self. Rubbing alcohol will soften and remove the paint.
Scrub it with warm water and a sponge sander block.
No, the weather will remove it in a year or two.
with white spirit. (its a fact)
Most brands have a paint specifically formulated for porches. Generally it is called "Porch and Floor" paint, and is available in latex as well as oil.
If you really want to ... yes. It might cause some issues later but should work for the most part as long as you apply a thin layer of paint. Acrylic house paint is normally a latex paint, so there should be no problem painting over a latex with acrylic. The only exception is if it is a solvent based acrylic silicone type paint. In this case, the coating will melt the latex paint, and… Read More
Answer I would try GooGone, it is orange based and won't hurt the floor. Good luck! Answer I just painted my house and made a mess on the vinyl floor. I tried numerous things and cobinations but found Murphys Oil Soap to the best. It was easy on the skin and lungs to! Simple rubbing alcohol will remove the paint and not harm the tile.
One can use Expoxy floor paint on concrete floors. Typically this would be used in a garage but could be applied to other floors made from concrete. One can purchase it from Home Depot.
If it's latex based, you can try a product called goof-off.
