Parking lot line removal


New member
I was wondering if there is a way to remove the lines that are painted on the parking lots?

I have a guy looking to remove the parking lot stripping so they can change the layout.

The parking lot is concrete.

How could this be done? Any ideas??

I have done it a couple of different ways. I don't know how effective others will find it, but I have used just a turbo nozzle on some. I have also soaked the lines with taginator, or another graffiti remover, and then hit them with a surface cleaner. That way I could have my vacuum system operating. Just so you know, you can do about 60 ft an hour of line removal this way.

I have seen them use a 4 inch roller and paint over them. I just did a parking garage and they painted over with grey epoxy paint on the concrete and used a five gallon bucket of black top sealer in the parking lot.


Not sure if it will remove the entire line or not, but soak it in a strong mix of caustic. Might need to apply more then once but I do know that it removes the paint.

Hey thanks for the replies guys!!

I have a parking lot that is roughly 100k sq and they all have to come up, so it could take awhile for sure.

I was thinking about the taganator stripper myself but wasn't for sure if that would do it or not.

I'll do some more research!!

You can always try Sentinel 205 Paint and Varnish Remover. I used their 626 Adhesive Remover to remove carpet glue from a warehouse floor last week and I was actually impressed with their product. Their products are fairly cheap. I think I paid somewhere around $150 for 10 gallons of the 626 stripper.

Try not to use the caustic method as the 1 choice.Its really looks bad on asphalt after it drys.

Still trying to decide if I want to even mess with it or if it will be a bigger pain than its worth.

Thanks for the links guys.

I would like to try some of the worlds best...
