Description: 4008 Restorer is a biodegradable cleaner for removing cured paint from an airbrush, spray-gun and any surface.
Usage: 4008 is used as a bath to soak metallic parts in. 4008 may also be wiped onto paint-covered parts. 4008 partially dissolves cured, water-based paint allowing for easy clean-up with soap and water.
4008 begins to dissolve cured paint upon contact. After a minimum of 10 minutes, cured paint should be easy to scrub off with soap and water. Parts may soak in 4008 for an extended time. It is OK to soak parts overnight after painting, cleaning and rinsing the following day.
Flush with water thoroughly after cleaning with 4008. Even trace amounts of 4008 will affect paint. After flushing with water, spraying with 5618 Airbrush Cleaner or 4011/4013/ will acclimate the airbrush or spray-gun for paint.
Do not spray 4008 through the airbrush or spray-gun. Use as a soak* or wipe onto the cured paint. Use 5618 Airbrush Cleaner or 4011 as a rinse to clean colors from airbrush or spray-gun while painting.
*4008 dissolves soft plastics. Keep away from stencils, soft plastics and O-rings other than polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) coated rings. 4008 is safe to use with harder plastics such as styrene.
