The Speedheater Rapid Slim makes paint removal fast, safe, and easy on indoor and outdoor surfaces. This model is designed with an optimized heating area to make it easier to access corners, mouldings, trims, and other tight spaces. Everything is designed to achieve the best possible result in the shortest amount of time.

Infrared heat makes it fast, safe, and environmentally friendly to soften and remove old paint from most surfaces, including wood and concrete, without producing dangerous lead fumes. The infrared heat also lets you remove glue and varnish, and it even works great on putty, no matter if the putty is old and hardened or fresh and rubbery. Protect window glass from exposure to long wave infrared heat with a reflective heat shield to prevent cracking due to thermal shock.

With the Angle Support Bar included, you can lock in the position of the tool to direct the heat and work hands-free, scraping one area while you heat another.

With scrapers also included, the Speedheater Rapid Slim IR Paint Remover kit gives you everything you need to get started right away.

The Speedheater Storage Box also comes included with this model for protection and easy transport to a worksite or when stored in the workshop.

Made in Sweden.
