Default de-bonder for c/a

what is the chance of getting a C/A joint loose without damage to the parts using debonder, when the joint was made weeks back ? I have never tried or needed the debonder, and can just make a few new parts.

Just thought I would ask

Cheers Bob T

You can try pure Acetone. Works for getting CA off my fingers....don't know if it will work on the material you need to debond.

It will debond. You just need patience and some time. A sharp razor blade is also useful. Good Luck, Dave

Hi!
The best way to remove (loosen up)
Ca glue is using nitro.
Debonder and Aceton is not working especially well compared to pure nitromethan.

I'd use a debonder and let it sit for a bit and then take a razor blade to it.
Jaka, not everyone has access to straight nitro or nitromethane. To use easily obtainable fuel, you soak the structure with oil, destroying it anyway. Debonder is readily available, it works and is easy to store.

Well guys a fellow club member told me to get finger nail polish remover from the dollar store, as that is what he is using so I figured for a buck why not. guess what it works great what I found is you have to keep it wet about 20 min, and it comes loose with no problem. Then let the parts dry for about an hour and you are good to go..

Nail polish remover is diluted acetone. That's why it took as long to dissolve it as it did. I'm glad you got it fixed.

I have to admit when I took chemistry way back in hi/school I did not do to well. So I don't have a clue what this stuff is but.

I tried plain acetone and nothing ? will try again and keep it wet longer. The nail polish remover I got has 1% acetone and dimethyl carbonate, dimethyl succinate, dimethyl adlpate/caycerin, and benzoate and water all in various amounts so don't know what worked.
But now it is over and I am moving ahead again
