Fluxaf on Fluxaf
a range of products manufactured by Vliegenthart of Holland under a brand name of FLUXAF.
In the 30’s Vliegenthart decided to start with the production of paint removers. We became one of the biggest manufacturers of the methylene chloride based type for the European market under various private label brands, and in our own country we became well known under the name Fluxaf. We started developing DCM-free alternatives in the eighties, in order to find safer solutions for the professional user.
In December 2010 we had to stop the production of DCM based paint remover, at that time we already were producing the Fluxaf Green, mainly for the French market where we remove thick layers of textured coatings from big building blocks. As there was hardly any evaporation of the product in the hot seasons, this product was more efficient than DCM.
The last few years we have had more demands for more types of cleaners, so we created a whole range of Fluxaf products for professional use. Our future goal for Fluxaf is to create more specialty products for the painter and decorator.

Plastics will generally be attacked, can be used on gel coats but a sample is necessary to test the actual gel coat quality. It can also be used under 0°C – interior and exterior use.
