Removing H&C Concrete Stain

We have H&C Solid Color Water Based Stain Coating on some areas of our concrete our Driveway. It faded, we hate it. We removed about 45% back in 2013 using a very harsh chemical stripper. Now hoping there is a newer reasonably priced, easy to use stain removal product available. Truly hope someone can help.

Thanks in advance.

I've used a good bit of the solvent based H&C stain and it dissolves with xylene but I've never used any of their waterbased concrete stain. Have you tried a pressure washer? I would think that a combination of chemical stripper and PWing would remove it. You might contact SWP to see what they recommend.

I've never done a lot of stripping but when a job comes up that requires it, I've always asked [and followed] the paint rep for advice. I suppose you could try less expensive strippers and see how they work. It's fairly important to follow the instructions that come with the stripper!
