Glue Bomb de-glueing, help?


Recommended Posts

I have decent Luck with Castrol Super clean. (AKA the purple pond) Its a Concrete Floor cleaner sold at Automotive stores and places like Walmart, or ACE hardware. If the glue is somewhat fresh it works really Fast if the glue is Older I have had it take up to a week and sometime the plastic Can become a slightly Brittle On a scale of 1 to 10 its an 8.75 It also Strip's Chrome.

hope this helps

I buy alot of glue bombs and what I do is put in a freezer bag so that you don`t loose any parts.Than I put in freezer till it falls apart it usally works for me.And that way your parts will all be good and not broken or gauges out of them.I hope this helps you.

Hey fellas, I got a question for you. How do you remove old glue from plastic? I have a glue bomb sbf that has oozed out glue all over it. It looks to be several years old. Thanks o' gurus of styrene.

Kid rule number one. Never do this at home. Rule number 2 never blow your old models up. 3 never use this to deglue a car unless its a diecast. B)B)B) Dang dude. Those work fast. Well just use them on diecast cars atleast something will be left B)

Old glue cannot be softened and removed without effecting all the styrene plastic in a bad way.

However, you CAN seperate old parts by dousing the model in water, shake and freeze in the icebox. The expanding mosture will work into the cracks and pop weak joints apart.

Other than that.... sanding and polishing is the only option for removing old glue blobs.... that I know of.

I know a guy that probably has a lifetime subscription maybe the next issue should have an article on painting in the dark with your feet using only magic markers .

Man, this is funny stuff! Not only did I get the info I needed (greatly appreciated!), but I ###### near laughed myself into incontinence. I do have a couple of M80's stashed away, but my kids make sure nothing lasts long enough to get that far. I love the magazine too! I not only should subscribe, I should see if they have a forum too! I could be in the company of others who glue their fingers together more than parts too.

Thanks again fellas, you guys help keep this hobby fun.

Have a good weekend,

Greg
