If you've already tried those two options, it may be that the original faux paint was applied correctly (using etcher and sealer) in which case you'd have minimal success with this product (in my experience).

However, I used muriatic acid to clean and etch my concrete, but not to strip it (It did nothing in that regard). So, it might be worth trying one bottle of this in a small area (and following the directions exactly) to see if you have better luck. I did find this outperformed the acid in bubbling. A little elbow grease and a wire brush to help this penetrate the paint is also a good approach.

I had the best luck with a product called Soygel, if that is helpful.

Dear Sal,

The Concrete & Masonry Paint Stripper will remove stains, epoxies, urethanes, elastomerics, sealants, latex and most industrial and architectural paints. Below are the recommended steps for using this product:

PREPARATION:
• SHAKE WELL PRIOR TO USE.
• Pour the BEHR® N0. 992 Concrete & Masonr y Paint Stripper into a paint tray or bucket. If water seems to have separated out, stir product until uniform.
• For vertical and glossy or greasy surfaces, scuff sand the surface lightly with a medium grit sand paper prior to application to prevent sagging of paint stripper.
• Test Patch: A test area will indicate the time required to lift coating and the suitability of the product for the paint and substrate.
• Protect grass and any nearby plants by dampening these areas with water and covering with plastic drop cloths.
• Prevent all rinse solution from entering storm drains.

APPLICATION
• Use product when air and surface temperatures are between 50-90°F (10-32°C).
• Wear protective clothing, goggles, acid resistant gloves, and a NIOSH approved air purifying respirator with an organic vapor cartridge.
• Apply a thick, even layer of stripper onto the surface using a paintbrush or an airless sprayer. Stripper thickness should be such that the original coated surface is completely covered.
• Spread rate is approximately 60-75 sq. ft. per gallon.
• Penetration varies according to coating type, thickness and temperature. COATING WILL WRINKLE WHEN THE JOB IS DONE. Most coatings will take between 1 – 6 hours to lift.
• Check periodically during the waiting period, to ensure that the coating is completely covered with the stripper. If the coated surface becomes visible again, re-apply a light coating.
• The stripper should remain wet and active until the coating wrinkles. If hot or windy conditions cause drying, re-apply a light coating.
• Use a scraper, stiff brush, squeegee or pressure washer to remove all coating and residue.
• The stripper is formulated to remove several layers of coating in one application. Some areas however, may require an additional application to remove all layers.
• The stripped surface must be rinsed with water thoroughly to remove all chemical residues before recoating.

DRY TIME
• Surface dry time will vary, depending on air & surface temperature.
• Make sure concrete or surface is visually and completely dry to touch prior to recoating.

CLEAN-UP
• If product comes in contact with painted or finished surfaces, rinse immediately with fresh water.
• Thoroughly rinse all surfaces, clothing and tools with fresh water immediately after use.
• Collect lifted coating and dispose of it in accordance with local government regulations.

Dear Marty,

Thanks for your inquiry on our BEHR Concrete & Masonry Pain Stripper. In order to protect your flower beds and surrounding grass and plants spray them with water first and then protect them with plastic sheeting prior to using the stripper. Please do keep children and pets away from the project area. Be sure to use rubber gloves and protective eye wear. After stripping is complete, thoroughly rinse the surface and surrounding areas. The water helps to dilute the stripper. If possible, wash the surface and the stripper away from the green areas.

Dear Zina,

Thanks for your inquiry on BEHR Premium Concrete & Masonry Paint Stripper. This product will remove most polyurethanes from tile, however it is formulated as a paint stripper so it will likely take several applications of our product and you will need to wait several hours (2-6) hours per application for the polyurethane to wrinkle before removing it. So our recommendation would be to use a product that is specifically formulated to remove polyurethane.
