The 4008 Restorer is not only effective but also highly economical. It is completely reusable, making it a cost-effective choice for artists and professionals.

4008 Restorer is a biodegradable cleaner for removing cured paint from an airbrush, spray-gun and any surface.


4008 is used as a bath to soak metallic parts in.  4008 may also be wiped onto paint-covered parts. 4008 partially dissolves cured, water-based paint allowing for easy clean-up with soap and water.

4008 begins to dissolve cured paint upon contact. After a minimum of 10 minutes, cured paint should be easy to scrub off with soap and water. Parts may soak in 4008 for an extended time.  It is OK to soak parts overnight after painting, cleaning and rinsing the following day.

Flush with water thoroughly after cleaning with 4008. Even trace amounts of 4008 will affect paint.  After flushing with water, spraying with 5618 Airbrush Cleaner or 4012 will acclimate the airbrush or spray-gun for paint.

Do not spray 4008 through the airbrush or spray-gun.  Use as a soak or wipe onto the cured paint. Use 5618 Airbrush Cleaner or 4012 as a rinse to clean colors from airbrush or spray-gun while painting.

4008 dissolves soft plastics.  Keep away from stencils, soft plastics and O-rings other than polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) coated rings.  4008 is safe to use with harder plastics such as styrene.

Pot-Life & Storage

4008 does not have a pot-life.  It may be used multiple times for repeated cleanings as a bath even after the liquid has become discolored.

Keep in a metallic or ceramic container, such as a coffee mug, with a cover.  For long term storage, keep air tight in a cool dry box or cabinet away from sunlight.

Health & Safety

Use in a well-ventilated area.  Avoid contact with eyes. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and warm water after use.  Do not ingest.
When spraying or sanding, use a properly-fitting NIOSH approved respirator per the manufacturer’s instructions.
Skin contact: Thoroughly wash with soap and warm water. Wearing gloves is recommended.
Eye contact: Rinse with clean water for 15 minutes.  Seek medical attention.
Inhalation: Use in in well ventilated areas and wear a NIOSH approved respirator.
Refer to 4008 SDS for additional information.

great product.. about once a month or so I tear down and clean my airbrushes and this product is amazing

Richard Voss
Restorer #4008.

Your airbrush internals will appreciate this as a daily final wash out. This product should not only be used on those mornings after when you forgot to flush your brush and paint has dried in the fluid cup.
As a daily cleaning use, more dried paint ring around the needle causing a sticky trigger. Rinse with water. . Good stuff.

Michael Quintana
