How does it work? Simple!

10 second can save you thousands!
  • Just Tru-Swipe the painted surface back and forth 3-4 times and examine the pad to see if paint was removed.
  • If paint is removed where Tru-Swiped, you know you have a water based coating that does not need to be primed before painting. Saving you time and money, while knowing you have the right paint for your project.
  • Oil based painted surfaces will not break down or degloss when using our specially formulated Tru-Swipe. A clean reading shows the the painted surface is oil based and will requiring sanding and a oil based top coat, or sanding, priming and a water based top coat. When water based paints are painted over oil based paint you end up with unsightly catastrophic failure as shown.

So before you or your painting contractor get started painting, Check it before you wreck it!

Do not use if the surface was sanded or is badly cracked. Clean painted surface of dirt or debris prior to use.
