Simple green soak duration for styrene

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'd love to avoid a warped/meltdown scenario.

Whats the safety limit in terms of soak time for styrene parts in Simple Green?

Not sure if there's much difference but I've let parts and bodies soak in purple power for over 2 weeks with no issues.

Ok cool, thanks JT.

I'm paranoid after my first mishap on the 908.  I know its a diff beast and all but still.  I check the parts daily.

I had been using Simple Green for paint stripping, but sometimes it just didn't seem to have any effect at all, even after an overnight soak. I just tried Super Clean, and in a matter of minutes, I could see paint color floating around in the mix!

No, not if it's rubbing alcohol. If the paint you're trying to take off is lacquer alcohol might be your best option. My last paint removal required separate soaks in both Super Clean, and , 91% rubbing alcohol.
