Etex removel

Rate this topic

10 posts in this topic

Well, the "accepted" method is a propane torch to first soften and then burn off the etex, and this works well, just like taking built up paint off your house, but may be detrimental to the health of your plastic plug. I am not aware of any solvent or agent that will remove cured epoxy, other than fire or sandpaper.

Since it is a plastic lure, you might be screwed as anything you do will damage the lure. But, you could probably just scuff the Etex really good with sand paper and prime over it and repaint. that should adhere, but not really sure.

What about using a paint stripper like Klean strip? I haven't tried it myself, I'm going to try it out on an old bomber I'm refurbishing.

 

Maybe that would work?headscratch.gif Anybody done this before?

Put the propane torch down or you be looking at a piece of crumpled sludge.

 

For plastic just sand it up, primer, repaint, and put your finish on.

Thanks for all the help guys,I did use a knife and it came off surprisingly easy by chips ,I did not sand it before applying the etex so that's probably why it was not a big deal to remove.

 

Oh ,and Winch,...I'm too cheap!!to buy another.

Acetone, which you can buy at any good painting supply outlet.

 

Soak it in acetone for a day or so and the epoxy comes right off. Spray paint comes off too. Works like a charm.
