The Removal Process

1. Using a Heat Gun

Here is a quick guide on how to use a heat gun to remove paint from uPVC window frames:

1. Begin by heating the paint with the heat gun. Hold the gun about six inches away from the surface and move it slowly back and forth.

2. Once the paint is heated, use a putty knife or other scraper to peel it away.

3. Continue heating and scraping until all the paint has been removed.

4. Once the paint is removed, you can sand the surface smoothly if desired.

2. Using a Sand Paper

If you want to remove paint from your uPVC window frames, you can do so using sandpaper in three steps.

First, you will need to determine the coarseness of the sandpaper. If the paint is thick, you will need to use coarse sandpaper. If the paint is thin, you will need to use finer sandpaper.

Next, you will need to sand the paint off the window frames. You can do this by using a circular motion with the sandpaper.

Finally, you will need to clean the window frames. You can do this by using a damp cloth.
