Mostly it remove paint except primer. Its hasn't harm plastic at all. And it only took 2 hour or less to remove paint. Very quick
So tell me what paint removal ya used?

Well, what type of paint are you you using that cleaner on to remove?

I use Purple cleaner for anything not lacquer
I use 91% or hight alcohol for lacquer
I use easy off oven cleaner sometimes, but I found that it only works on Chrome, I have not yet had it remove paint.

I use 99% Isopropyl Alcohol‎. Strips paints like lacquers and primer back to bare plastic quickly and cleanly.

ditto. and you can leave clear parts in the IPA bath for months (yes, that did happen to me) and the clear parts are still good as new.
