Chris,

I would try a paint store to see if they have oil based floor paints and if so a proper solvent to remove that type of coating.

Hope this helps.

Only way to remove paint like that is with a heavy duty chemical. I did a 2,000 sq. foot paint removal project and had to roll on some nasty stuff with respirator, and come back 24 hours to hand scrape the majority, then pressure wash off the rest.

Klean Strip "Premium Sprayable Stripper".  Works well, but must be sprayed in a mist--will be much more effective and faster.  If you put on too much, it will slow the process.  And you MUST wear a respirator, not a P95 mask.  It's a very high VOC organic solvent.

Do you use a pump sprayer for the Kleen strip Jeffrey? I don't have a hot water heater either. If I must on how long should it take before I can blast it.

Any pump you use will be finished when the job is finished.  I would agitate & rinse.  May not need a lot of pressure, but some would likely help.  I used this stuff to remove paint & urethane seals from floors in a former life.  If you use a pump sprayer, keep the pressure mild to medium.  Don't use it as you would for water based cleaning solutions.  When you buy it, there should be a small spray bottle to use as well.  Use that to treat the edges so that you are not broadcasting a large pattern as with the pump sprayer.

Thanks for your help guys. I went back to customer today but they decided to go ahead and paint it over. Guess they felt so bad they said they didn't want me to try and finish. Well first time for everything, but I landed another job next store. Thank God

I second AC's sandblasting. Just make sure you blast over an area many times rapid, not small spot slowly.
