Paint Stripping just got easier AND safer!

The strength and endurance of a paint job relies on the adhesion of the bottom-most paint layer.


Using our Speedheater™ Infrared Paint Remover, hands-free attachments, and unique pull-type paint scrapers, you will realize:

  • Faster set-up, operation, and clean-up time than any other paint removal method

  • One heat application and scraping to create primer-ready, bare wood

  • Safety for users and the environment

  • For contractors, compliance with the EPA’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) law

The bottom layer of paint holds all the rest!

The top layer of paint is often seen as the one responsible for peeling and cracking, when it is really the bottom layer which does not have good adhesion. As paint ages and more layers are added, the thickness of the coats builds up and the adhesion of the foundation layer deteriorates. This 3-minute video shows the Speedheater™ Infrared Paint Remover in action.

By removing all the layers of paint and exposing the bare wood again, strong, long-lasting painting can begin using primer and undercoats which offer good adhesion. We have a 66-minute training DVD demonstrating how to use the Speedheater™ tools on many interior and exterior applications and with lead-safe work practices. You can obtain it here.

Don't be fooled by look-alike copies of the original Speedheater™

The Speedheater™ Infrared Paint Remover is the ORIGINAL infrared paint remover introduced to the USA in 2002. Its innovative technology has been copied by two American manufacturers. Don't be fooled by these copycat models, neither of which has been UL certified (Underwriter's Laboratory certified) nor quality and safety tested as has the Speedheater™. The Silent Paint Remover looks identical to the Speedheater™ but is not the same machine. Read more here.

Listen to MICHAEL JACKSON, Historic Restorationist who compared all 3 competitive products:

"I have used the Speedheater™ as well as the OTHER two knockoff products extensively. I love my Speedheater™! The shock absorbers are fantastic. I have yet to break a tube. With one of the other knock-offs, I went through two sets of tubes in the first three months. UL listing of the Speedheater™ is a big plus when dealing with government regulations. I also love their scrapers!"
