Default How do you get Thin CA glue off Covering



Can someone tell me what to use to get Thin CA glue off of covering? I tried some ZAP D-7 Debonder that Ihad laying around but it didn't see to work well. Thanks.

If your talking about Monokote or Ultracote then fold a paper towel and place over the effected area soaked with acetone, keep towel wet for around 10 minutes and start wiping with wet towel until all C/A is removed.

As Bob said. If it doesn't come off completely then use your finger nail and scrape it off. Sometimes that works, depends on how long it has been on there.

You can get aceton at walley world and it works just fine....plus after you iron down a covering joint or install a patch go over the edges with aceton to help secure the edges.
I have stoped using windex...and started with aceton now I clean with alcohol and I don't have peeling edges on my coverings

If you think it would get through customs i will send you this one.

If i'm being perfectly honest, i think it's just a small bottle of acetone, maybe some other additives, i'm not sure.

Thanks, but like another posted said, I'm going to keep it simple and get a QT. from Home Depot or my local paint store. Thanks for the offer. They are probably filling that little bottle with Acetone and adding 500% to the cost.

Yeah, i absolutly agree, i've only ever used the contents of the bottle to join plastic ABS parts together so i think it is just acetone. Let us know how you get on.
