Abstract : Conventional alkaline-organic solvent, vertical adherence paint removers have two disadvantages; namely, lack of storage stability and rapid evaporation of the organic solvent component after application of said remover to the surfaces which are to be stripped of paint. These disadvantages are traceable to two commonly used ingredients of such products. This invention deals with compositions of matter which form thickened, alkaline-organic solvent, vertical adherence paint removers. It deals more particularly with thickened brush-on and spray-on paint removers for use on ferrous surfaces comprising highly alkaline detergents, surfactant soaps of fatty and rosin acids, glycols, metallic soap thickeners and water. These materials are combined into stable, mucilaginous, thixotropic gels.
