“Have tried 4 coats and it still will not scrape artex...”

Have tried 4 coats and it still will not scrape artex off. Bought a heavy duty scraper and even scored the walls and still only comes of in little bits and is very hard going. We bought the big container at £100. Any ideas what to do next?… Read Full Review

I thought about buying this stuff but decided against it as it could only be bought on the net. It is a lot of money to fork out if, like what happened to you, it doesn't work. We have a problem with textured walls in our house and have been struggling to remove it little by little with a steamer. The largest part we think we may have to plasterboard. So I too would be very interested to see if anyone else has any ideas!

Hi. I saw you had problem with the X-Tex product. I also had a problem in one of my rooms and found that it was because the artex was painted over many times with emulsions.
<br/>
<br/>I had to remove the paint before I could get to the artex. The same product did remove the paint, but I had to leave it overnight and cover it with plastic film. I then used a long handle blade scraper and it came off okay. I had to repeat this once more without using the film this time to get back to plaster.
<br/>
<br/>I have tried steaming and other solvent products and find this to be the best. Stripping anything off is not the same everytime as I sure found out when three rooms cleaned off really easily and one didn't. But I honestly feel that this product was the best bet by far.

I recently purchased a product called X-Tex to remove my awful artex on the walls of my house. I found this product online and am amazed it is not in the big diy stores. I brushed it on and left it over night. The next day came in and scraped it all off with ease. It says that it keeps the artex wet or damp at all times in case it contains asbestos (pre 1985)… Read Full Review

Thanks for that info, it is something we will be looking into soon. Not sure if this is artex or polyripple but some bright spark put it all over the lounge walls and the hall, stairs and landing in our house! Before we bought it of course. We have only been able to paint over it so there&#039;s a few layers of paint to come off with it too! I agree, we have found nothing to remove it in any DIY store. Tried sanding a bit of it once. What a mess! Gave that up! If anyone else reading this knows of a DIY store selling anything like this to remove the horrible stuff, Please let us know?!

Hi Helen. Yes this X-Tex product will remove any type of textured coating. It is not available in any of the big stores and to be honest all other textured coating removers I have come accross have nasties in them. If you type in X-Tex into Goolge you will bring up a few e-retailers that you can buy it from..Good Luck...
