Recommend product for stripping lacquer from stone floors

hosenemesisJanuary 27, 2013

I have an Arizona flagstone floor coated with Glaze n Seal "Wet Look" Lacquer. The ice machine broke, flooded the kitchen, and now I have ruined flaking lacquered stone floors. I would like to strip it off (one stone at a time) and reseal. What is the best product to use to do this? I can't find any local seller of lacquer stripper, but I can find lacquer thinner. Will paint and varnish stripper work?

Will I have to use lacquer again to reseal the stones, or can I use something that chips less easily, like eggshell polyurethane?

Look into a institutional floor stripper that removes wax, etc.. At full-strength it's sure to remove sealers and lacquers too, but nothing like poly.

Try the Soy Gel stripper. Laquer thinner will also work, but the fumes are explosive.

And for resealing, use a standard stone sealant that is urethane based.
