Speedheater™ Cobra

(2 customer reviews)


This is the infrared paint stripper you’ve been waiting for! With its 20-year-tested infrared technology, the Cobra strips paint, varnish, and adhesives with incredible speed. The concentrated Cobra heat softens the paint in 1-3 seconds without scorching the valuable wood.

It makes easy scraping of hard-to-reach surfaces with curves and details like old windows, spindles, and furniture. It protects our environment by eliminating flying chips and dust and uses approximately 75% less energy than the commonly-used heat gun.

    I called Eco-Stripper about your review as I was concerned about purchasing the product. They explained if the wood is extremely dry (no oil is any longer present in the paint,ususally alligatored paint) then an additional step is required to remove the paint. Go over the area with linseed oil, wait overnight, this will rehydrate the paint with oil and then the infrared heat will take the paint off.

    It *may be possible that I need more practice using this tool, however, at first blush I am not impressed. We bought it because we have a 98 year old home with TONS of oil-based lead paint that needs to be removed. However, when I use this tool on that I either a. get no visible bubbling in 3-4 seconds or b. hold it on longer and set my wood on fire. Either way, the paint won’t budge. Now, on newer latex paint, it works great, but that wasn’t what I was needing to use it for. I am pretty disappointed given how easy it looked in the videos and how expensive it was.
