The first step in this process usually involves removing the old paint.
Various methods have been used to accomplish this task, and until recently they all had a very negative environmental impact.
Sanding and sandblasting are one of the most widely used techniques to remove old bottom paint. This technique almost always produces a toxic cloud that is difficult to keep from drifting into the nearby waterways, and of course the atmosphere.
Heat guns have been used with varying degrees of success, however, heating a substance like paint to the melting point produces all sorts of noxious fumes.
Applying chemical compounds designed to weaken and dissolve paint so it can later be scraped off is another frequently used means of removing old paint.
Needless to say, these traditional strippers were designed with very little thought to how they would affect the environment. The active ingredient in most of them is methylene chloride, a known carcinogen.
Using good old fashioned ingenuity, however, a group of folks have harnessed compounds crafted by Mother Nature to create a product that works as well or better than the toxic, synthetic versions.
Made in America by the good people at Franmar, Soy Strip Marine Coating Remover is a soybean-based liquid that does a nasty job with ease.
More importantly, Soy Strip works without causing harm to the environment or those folks using it.
Practical Sailor magazine had this to say about Soy Strip in their November 2006 edition.
"In 2000, we tested Franmar’s Soy Gel stripper, and found it slightly less effective than our two favorites from Peel Away. This time(2006) we were given Soy Strip, which has 10 percent more active ingredient than Soy Gel. It is not a new product: just one that we missed. Like Soy Strip, Soy Gel is advertised as a “natural” solution to removing anti-fouling paints, urethanes, and enamels from boat hulls. It has no odor, and a very low evaporation rate.
While not as thick as some of the other strippers, Soy Strip still had excellent cling and remained moist during the entire six-hour test period. After just 30 minutes, it removed 90 percent of the paint in a small test scrape, and at the six-hour mark, it removed approximately 95 percent of the bottom paint from the test panel.
Bottom Line: Soy Strip is powerful. It removed move paint faster than any other stripper, even the “fast-acting” ones. Impressed, we tested it a second time and after one hour the section treated with Soy Strip scraped off almost effortlessly."

A Story of Invention and Innovation…
More than anything else, Frank Sliney is a problem solver.
From his early introduction to the screen printing industry at trade shows, and in the normal course of building a business, Frank realized that the existing chemistry used by screen printers was not only unhealthy and unsafe, it was not good for our environment.
Frank's awareness of soy's ability to replace the highly toxic and expensive petrochemicals used by screen printers gave him the vision of a providing a safer, more economical workplace.
With the assistance and support of his wife, Marilyn, the couple started down a path of chemistry and innovation, seeking natural products that could do the job, safely and affordably. Their implementation of their vision proved that safe cleaning with natural products was possible and their actions have helped fuel a change- for the better - to cleaning techniques and philosophies throughout the world.
The first product Frank formulated, BEAN-e-doo®, replaced the use of mineral spirits, xylene, toluene, even gasoline, in cleaning screen printing cleaning operations. As all screen printers will tell you, it was an amazing innovation. BEAN-e-doo® was born! And from that exciting first innovation, product after product, supporting industry after industry, has emerged.
Throughout all of the innovations, all of the research and development, Frank and Marilyn have guided Franmar's growth with this simple principle: provide an efficient product that is economical to purchase, and safe to use. Today, many call this "Green." At Franmar we refer to it as doing the right thing!
Franmar has now gained worldwide acclaim for its effective, economical, and safe product lines—all developed to benefit workers and their environment.
Owners Frank and Marilyn are still very involved in the company. They work closely with their executive team to keep the deep-rooted values of hard work and service excellence as a company priority.
Throughout its 25-year history, Franmar has worked closely with the United Soybean Board, even occasionally receiving some USB research and development funds.
Farmers participate in the USB soybean checkoff, whereby they collectively invest a portion of their profits to fund soy research and promotion.
With assistance from USB checkoff funds for R&D, combined with Franmar's own R&D and marketing funds, Franmar has very successfully increased the market for products made from soy oil.
