    Default Removing Baked On Door Rubbers

    Between my 2 projects I have 6 doors that look like this.

    I'm waiting for a real hot day to leave them out in the sun before tackling the job.


    Does anyone know of any magical techniques or solvents to expedite the procedure?

    Back to the Rubber Chemical resistance chart.

    Pick your rubber and look down the chart to see what dissolves/softens it

    Do a test area first

    Thank you!

    Well going on the no. of 3's & 4's they get, it looks like acetone and/or toluene (GP thinners) is the go once I dig out what I can with heat & a plastic chisel.

    Heat gun for stripping paint. They have settings these days. So you don't smoke yourself out. Either way what a horrible job. Maybe wear some nitrile gloves with those chemicals.

    I'd try some orange oil solvent first. Not nearly as toxic as the Vocs listed.

    I noticed that some cabinet makers have changed from MEK as glue cleaner to orange oil solvent.

    Commonly sold in Oz as Sceney's citrus solvent. And available at art supply houses.

    Hot air gun till the rubber starts to drip.

    Plastic chisel to scrape off as much as possible.

    Dremel with wire brush.

    Brush/wash with lots of Prepsol & wipe clean

    Crappy job!
