Removing Spray Adhesive

Hope everybody is keeping warm up North. I am working on a boat which I have removed a heavy vinyl liner from the interior hull. I plan to use an epoxy primer and paint but need to remove the spray adhesive residue, I do not know what adhesive was originally used.

I have tried paint thinner with minimal results. I have been told to try WD-40, lighter fluid, and kerosene. Any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Lighter fluid will work, but don't spend your money buying it as lighter fluid. Go to your local hardware store and look for "Naptha", it is the same as lighter fluid and you can get a gallon of it for around $10.00 witch is cheaper the a can of lighter fluid witch is around $2.00 - 3.00 for a small can. I use it to clean dirt and remove adhesives from vinyls. It will not harm the vinyl and it evaporates quickly.

This should go in the Contact adhesive wiki article. I've added a link to this thread in the article. Please add/update accordingly. Thanks.

Xylol available at Lowes or Home Depot.

Xylol or mineral spirits will take off most contact adhesive. Xylol is more expensive but works a little better. You'll have to work at it if it is old and very dry.

I have found Krud Kutter (from Home depot) to work on all the items on it's label which are Adhesive, caulk, foam, mastic, silicone, roofing tar. It states it's biodegradable. Best to wear gloves when using the product. For me it worked great for removing old labels and adhesive from double sided tape.

You can try anything you want, but the solvent for Top and Trim contact adhesive is mineral spirits or Xylol. Nothing else works better.

I strongly recommend NOT to use any oil based product for removal. They will affect the adhesion of your impending paint job.

If the residue is hard and/or brittle scrape it off. Heat will soften it some so it can be removed easier by this method. BUT, be cautious with heat around fiberglass, or it may burn to the ground!

Good luck

While you are correct, we are talking about removing Top and Trim Contact adhesive from fabric, vinyl, leather, and Ultraleather. There isn't going to be any paint sprayed on a car seat.
