SILICONE SEALANT REMOVER can be used to remove old silicone sealant during renovations. It is suitable for use on brick, concrete, metals, glass, PVCu, melamine laminates and acrylic.
Ensure the surface of the material is completely dry. Cut away excess sealant with a knife or sharp blade. Protect any surrounding paint work with masking tape. Brush the remover over the old silicone, being careful to avoid areas of correctly applied sealant, and allow to stand for at least 2 hours. Wipe clean with a paper tissue or dry cloth and ensure all traces of solvent are removed. Keep some water handy to deactivate any runs. Surfaces should be degreased with a solvent, such as methylated spirit, before applying fresh sealant.
Do not use on nylon, re-enamelled or plastic coated metals. If in doubt, try a small area first.
The gel should be applied to dry surfaces only and under dry weather conditions. If the gel
comes into contact with water, the active ingredients will be deactivated and the gel
rendered un-usable. The gel will not completely dissolve silicone sealant but will break down the adhesion of the sealant to the substrate to facilitate removal.
Store in original, unopened containers, out of direct sunlight. Store between 50 C and 25 C.
