Does anybody know what the best solvents to use for removing residual cured parbond and vulkem(trempro). Choices include, acetone, laquaer thinner, mineral spirits, MEK etc. Would be interested in what U guys are trying. George
Some say for Vulkem the best is Hoppes #9 ( nitro bore cleaner) as in gun cleaning supplies. I have not found that to be the case. I have found W-D-40 to be as good as anything, and still there is alot of work involved. No magic solvent I have read about in lots of these threads.
Maybe some combo of the two would be dynamite.??
I have no experience that I know of with parbond removal. Sorry.
Well I can answer my own post today. MEK takes it off like nobody's buisness. DO NOT use MEK on anything that is clear coated or painted. It acts a paint remover as well. It was OK in my case because I was preparing to get the Argosy painted. Just thought I'd let others know what I learned. G
the "magic" remover is a heat gun...preferably one with a small nozzle that can be carefully aimed. the one I borrowed is used for de-soldering printed circuit boards, and heating up heat-shrink tubing, and such. the nozzle was about the size of a dime. Anyway, the heat softened it right up, and peeled off like magic with a plastic scraper.
