Eco-Strip is the exclusive US distributor of Speedheater™ Infrared Paint Removers. Since 2003, we have provided a safe, efficient, and effective paint removal method especially for toxic, lead paint. Our low heat, EPA-Compliant Speedheater™ Infrared Paint Removers soften many layers of old paint in seconds. The Speedheater™ Cobra is the FASTEST infrared paint remover on the market heating paint in 3-5 seconds. Speedheater™1100 heats it in less than 60 seconds. Scraping is easy with our sharp, ergonomic scrapers. Our articulating Classic Arm provides hands-free operation of our Speedheater™1100. Speedheater™ Cobra weighs only 22 oz and is easy to hold vertically, horizontally, or upside down.

The Speedheater™ is the original Infrared Paint Remover and is international Underwriters Laboratory (UL) listed for safety. In addition to UL Listing, the Speedheater™ passed independent testing in Sweden for safe removal of old, lead-based paint. As a result, the Speedheaters™ are the only infrared heat remover brand compliant with the rigorous U.S. EPA RRP (Renovation, Repair and Painting) safety standard. This standard prohibits the use of paint removal tools which are toxic or create lead fumes. https://www.epa.gov/lead/lead-renovation-repair-and-painting-program

Easy. Efficient. Safe. Eco-Friendly

Speedheaters™ use infrared rays to heat paint and wood for easy stripping. In addition, the infrared rays bring the natural wood resins back up to the wood surface and rejuvenate it. The resulting wood surface is bare and immediately ready for priming and painting. This low-heat method reduces the risk of fire or environmental damage and dramatically shortens clean-up time. No other paint removal method can achieve these high-quality results with so few steps.

Speedheaters™ aren’t just for exterior and interior building restoration. They can be used for window restoration, boat varnish and epoxy removal, furniture refinishing, vinyl floor adhesive removal and more.

Speedheater™ is the Most Gentle and Safer Side of Paint Stripping

When you think of paint stripping, most people envision harsh chemicals, flying dust, a lot of time, tons of elbow grease, and a big mess to clean up. With the Speedheater™ Infrared (IR) Paint Remover Kit, you can avoid all of this. Speedheaters™ operating at 400-600° F are the most gentle method of paint removal on wood. Unlike a heat gun, they don’t blow high heat into cracks in the surface or heat deeply into the wood; the risk of fire is minimized. Unlike chemicals or sanding, the paint waste from using Speedheaters™ is easily contained and collected at the end of the day with no spillage of toxic chemicals or flying lead dust released into the air or ground.
