||Paint strippers consist of concentrated formulations of varying complexity containing one or the other of the following substances: dichloromethane (50% of paint strippers); sodium or potassium hydroxide (25% of paint strippers are alkaline with a pH>13); phosphoric, hydrochloric, hydrofluoric, nitric or sulfuric acid (90% of pickling liquors and 70% of strippers for ovens). Being mostly caustic and corrosive, these substances can give rise to possibly severe irritation of the skin, and the respiratory and ocular mucous membranes. There is also a risk of inflammation from hydrocarbons and oxygenated compounds, together with the harmful and suspected carcinogenic effects of dichloromethane (classified R40).
