Since EU banned Dichloromethane, you may have noticed that Nitromors no longer works in the way it used to, despite reformulation. Unfortunately Synstryp is only available in 5 litre quantities, however it does apparently work in the same old way and does come with one pair of free gloves. This seems to be the cheapest price, you could pay £35 or more

Ebay seller does say :

DATE ON PHOTOGRAPH IS OLD PHOTO, YOU WILL RECEIVE AN IN DATE BATCH.

This product only has a 12 Month shelf life so do check the batch date with the seller.

Heat for good price and the best stripper on the Market.

This is our top seller on our company website but we cannot beat the free delivery.

It is water soluble: old Nitromors used to come in two sorts one only was water soluble (which was the most useful one IMO)

I can't actually see a date on any of the photos he's put there and (apparently) he has sold 1344

I thought Nitromors had been a bit rubbish lately but I had no idea why. Thanks OP
Those awful EU "elf n safety" wackjobs at it again!

"Dichloromethane (DCM) is not without health risks, as its high volatility makes it an acute inhalation hazard. It can also be absorbed through the skin (hence the gloves!).

Symptoms of acute overexposure to DCM via breathing it in include
* difficulty concentrating,
* dizziness,
* fatigue,
* nausea,
* headaches,
* numbness,
* weakness,
* irritation of the upper respiratory tract and eyes.

More severe consequences can include suffocation, loss of consciousness, coma, and death.."

DCM is also converted to carbon monoxide in the body, potentially leading to carbon monoxide poisoning. Acute exposure by inhalation has resulted in optic nerve damage and hepatitis. Prolonged skin contact can result in DCM dissolving some of the fatty tissues in skin, resulting in skin irritation or chemical burns.

DCM has been linked to cancer of the lungs, liver, and pancreas in laboratory animals. Other animal studies showed breast cancer and salivary gland cancer. Research is not yet clear as to what levels may be carcinogenic

Surely DCM is just the ticket to use up a 40ft ladder to strip the paint off of your facias? Or to use in a poorly-ventilated room indoors. What could possibly go wrong?

He never mentioned the 12 month shelf so batch date is a must... I think he is covering his arse saying about dates

This paint stripper is very strong as clancolin states.

Should only be sold to professional users who know how to use.

We have supply TDS when selling this product so the seller should do this as well.

The HSE still licence DCM for Professional use after appropriate training and certification.

I'm gonna use it for stripping so called 'stain' from the grooves in my decking.

Plenty of COSHH style info available online e.g.

I don't see how occasional use, but taking intelligent precautions, is likely to make the product more hazardous to my health than it is for professionals using it frequently.

Well don't use it then. I have used the original Nitromors for a very long time. I seem to be fine. No-one would use the original Nitomors without gloves. You avoided the fumes. Just do it outside. Use the sense that you were given.
Drinking water is not without health risks. Breathing is not without health risks. Doing any physical activity is mot without heath risks

Maybe a useful contribution or don't bother
Been looking into paint strippers over the last few days and this stuff seems to come highly recommended, I recently bought a car with some nice wheels that had been painted to match the bonnet and front grille however the other day I noticed one of the wheels was chipped/flaked away on on the paint and underneath was immaculate chrome WTF? who would do that? They are £5-600 wheels with only a couple of hundred miles at the time I bought the car, I have stripped half a wheel using a full can of nitromors and it was painfully slow as that stuff is garbage.

My question is if I took the wheels off one by one and did them in the garden would I be able to use this and then use a pressure washer to remove the paint rather than risk using a scraper?

It's a bit strange to me. Are they really chrome on steel? Maybe vintage then? Or some alloy finish on alloy?
If they really are chrome on steel then you will have to just use a pressure washer. I've always just used a scaper and then water to remove what remains. If you could find a plastic scraper that wasn't softened by the stripper that would be good. Not an expert sorry.
