Silicone Sealant Remover Tips.

Estimated read time 2 min read

If you’re working with an oil-based lubricant, such as hydraulic fluid, transmission fluid, or engine oil, chances are you’ll need to do a silicone sealant removal at some point. Unfortunately, even if you are using an oil-free fluid, it can still be necessary to remove the sealants by means of a rubber suction bottle or by hand. Here are a few things you should keep in mind when doing your Silicone Sealant Removal:

First, in order to effectively remove the sealants from plastics and rubber materials (such as rubber roof tiles and interiors), you need to find a good quality silicone sealant remover. This type of solid compound cleaner is easy to find online, and is a relatively inexpensive alternative to many chemical cleaners. Silicone sealant remover, like the ones from CT1 aren’t just effective, safe, and handy – it’s also remarkably affordable. A standard glass block-like gel based sealant removers can only be applied and then left on for only a matter of minutes to nearly an hour, because the solvents used in these applications will begin to degrade quickly.

Second, when using a gel-based sealants remover, it’s crucial that you apply the solution with care and only to the crevices that are actually affected by the moisture. Using a solvent that’s too harsh will damage the sensitive plastics used in these areas. Also, be sure not to leave the solvent soluble; this will result in it being left behind on the affected surface. If you do apply the gel based sealants remover too frequently, there’s a real possibility that the moisture will penetrate the wood underneath, weakening the support beneath the skin’s surface, causing the wood to expand and contract unexpectedly. A low quality silicone sealants remover will not do this – it will cause the wood to warp, or crack.
