How to remove double-sided adhesive tape
Adhesive double-sided is an adhesive tape with a fabric or polypropylene base. On both sides it has a special adhesive composition. One side is protected by a strip made of waxed paper.
Most often this tool is used for a variety of installation and repair work. In particular, with the help of this adhesive tape you can glue anything on such smooth surfaces as suspended ceilings, linoleum and tiles. Many builders note that the use of such an adhesive tape is highly economical and reliable. Most often, the length of the adhesive tape is 3m. Double-sided adhesive tape is easily fixed, but it is not so easy to eliminate it.
How do I remove the adhesive tape?
To do this, you will need a building or conventional hair dryer, vegetable oil, sponge, thinner, office knife, high-quality glass cleaner or eucalyptus oil.
Use a hairdryer to warm the tape thoroughly. Then take a solvent designed to remove the acrylic adhesive. You need to remove the foamed fabric or polypropylene base. Next, take a sponge, apply a solvent on it and clean off any remaining adhesive.
You can also try using white spirit, acetone, kerosene, gasoline or solvent 646. The technology is the same - two-sided adhesive tape needs to be preheated, remove the substrate, and remove the remaining glue with a sponge agent.
The best effect is achieved by using a construction hair dryer, but you can apply and household.
You can and do not heat the entire surface of the adhesive tape. Simply perform a directed action on the edge. This will be enough to pick up and remove the scotch.
Another way to remove residues is to use fatty oil. Under its influence, the acrylic adhesive leaves easily from the surface. And this does not even require any effort. Simply take any vegetable oil, apply it on the sponge and properly lubricate the double-sided adhesive tape. Leave it for 12 hours. Then you can simply remove the adhesive tape. You do not even need to use a hairdryer. Oil residues can easily be removed with any solvent.
To remove the double-sided adhesive tape from the glass surface, you can use a simple stationery knife instead of a solvent. First you need to remove the base, and then gently scrape off the remnants of the glue. Then you will only need to apply a super cleaner for the glasses - it can be purchased at any car dealer.
Do not use cleaning or detergent to remove residual acrylic adhesive. Double-sided adhesive tape does not get wet, so it's useless to try to clean it with ordinary water and detergent. If the surface with which you need to remove the glue, varnished, do not use dissolving agents and thermal effects. This can damage the surface. Lubricate the scotch with ether or eucalyptus oil and leave for a few hours. Then remove the substrate. Remains of glue can be removed with the help of a glass cleaner.
