Is there a solvent or stripper to remove latex paint from wood?

Latex on wood? Many strippers... almost all of them. But what is your aim? Do you want a clean "wood-like" surface, or just to repaint? If the former, you will need to scrape and sand after the intial paint removal and the surface dries... a lot.

the Jasco stripper I have does nothing, maybe it's old. I want to repaint with gloss enamel. Thanks

Hmmm... are you sure it's latex then and not some epoxy paint? Jasco shreds latex.

Yep ... pretty much any paint stripper will pop latex paint off in no time flat.


Try HT-350 stripper. It is supposed to be safe for wood and it will strip urethane and epoxy paints.

Tolulene removes latex fairly fast. It's the main active ingredient in Goof-Off.
