Unglueing stuff/Solvents
« on: 24.03. 2018 08:57 »

 I couldn't think of a better 'subject', nothing specific to do with bikes or anything but here goes....

 I was struggling to remove the rotor button from my youngsta's 4wheeler Integra, the U-toobes I looked at made it look easy *eek*... soaked it overnight with Lanotec, no go...long story short I squirted in some 'brake cleaner', and it fairly much popped right off....so my question is; Can superglue or Loctite or other be the culprit?
  I only ask in order to bring the possibilitity to attention as a possible remedy for shit situations (I busted the rotor button, but that at least made it accessible for the solvent squirt)

Could it be the “freezing” effect from the brake cleaner that made it pop off?

G'day duTch.
I find carby clean or aerostart (startyabastard) works on most glues. Worked when I stuck my fingers together with superglue  *bash*.

   If the adhesive is Super Glue, women's fingernail polish remover will separate your glued together fingers, or other Items, if your wife is mad enough to glue your body parts together, while you are sleeping, or passed out, from too many Brewskies, you better have some close to the bed.  *smile* *smile* *smile*.

    All kidding aside the acetone is what releases the super glue.  I do not know any one who has not almost or completely
accidently glued their fingers together with that stuff ! ! ! !
