Norton RapidStrip Wire Brush : Hello and thank you for your time. I would like to use this to remove some very a stubborn rubberized type of paint or coating that has been applied to the tread-area of the topside of a fiberglass 24' sailboat cabin.

Not sure... Maybe worth a try. It worked very well for me to strip epoxy paint off fiberglass and roughened the glass for bonding. It tends to roughen the surface of anything not metal.

I did not use the brush to remove rubberized coatings so can't say how well it would work in that application. I used it to remove coatings of hard bottom paint and primer from a max prop. It did a good job and did not damage the prop.

I would definately give it a go !The Norton rapidstrip is good at irregular surfaces and easily controlled - I've used them extensively for prepping areas I didn't want to grind and it's a tool I reach for regularly - holds up well, too.
