Details

EVERBUILD SILICONE EATER is a revolutionary product specifically designed to remove all silicone based sealants and surface water repellents - cured and uncured. The product acts by digesting silicone polymers making them easily water or solvent rinsable.

  • Readily digests silicone
  • Ready for use gel - may be used vertically as well as horizontally with no slump.
  • Does not contain halogenated solvents, heavy metals, cyanide etc.
  • Water clean up.
  • Low hazard formulation

 

Areas For Use

 

  • May be used on aluminum* and its alloys, copper and its alloys, iron, steels, glass, ceramics, epoxy composites, most plastics.
  • Has little effect on rubber and other elastomers.
  • Has little effect on most painted surfaces.

                   

Surface Preparation

 

All surfaces must be clean, dry and dust free. Cut away as much as possible of the silicone sealant using a sharp knife. Protect surrounding areas with impervious masking tape

 

Application

 

Cut the tip of the cartridge taking care not to damage the thread. Apply nozzle and cut at an angle of 45o with an opening slightly larger than the gap to be sealed. Apply using a standard sealant gun. Best results will be obtained by keeping an even pressure on the trigger and keeping the gun at a constant angle to the surface being sealed.

 

(a) Removing Silicone sealants from baths/showers etc.

Spread the bead over the entire area which requires treatment (use masking tape to protect surrounding areas) A coating of at least twice the thickness of the underlying silicone should be applied.

 

The dwell time required may be varied between 2 hours to 4 hours depending on primarily on the characteristics of the underlying silicone and the substrate from which it is to be debonded. Repeat application if necessary.

 

Wash off with water after 4 hours max.

 

Note: The product specifically removes silicone products. It may only have a softening effect on acrylics, GP mastics and butyl sealant.

 

NB ALWAYS TEST A SMALL AREA FIRST TO ENSURE COMPATIBILITY (INCLUDING RUN OFF AREA) THE PRODUCT IS IRREVERSIBLY NULLIFIED BY CONTACT WITH WATER. ENSURE SURFACES ARE DRY.

 

(b) Removing  Silicone Water Repellent overspray from windows and frames.

Apply as in (a) to window panes, frames cills etc and allow a dwell time of 10 minutes. Wash off with white spirits or water. Repeat if necessary.
