Removing 5200

The genius who owned my boat before me apparently sealed the chainplates with 5200....anyone have suggestions for removing this stuff without destroying the gelcoat?

Thanks in advance

Removing 5200

There is a 5200 solvent that you can get from Westmarine called "Anti-bond 2015". It comes in a little spray can and is supposed to work on things like 5200.

Take a look here

Removing 5200

It appears that with their 5200 line Rule has gone up over the mountain and is sliding down the other side! They''ve created a product that works too well and it is cursed as much as a product that doesn’t work well enough! I''ve heard that gasoline works to soften it up although I''ve never tried it.

Removing 5200

I have used 3 m 5200 with great results. I have had few problems removing it. If you have a problem you use a heat gun and heat the 3 m 5200 and peal it off. Be carefull not to use to much heat as you will damage your gell coat.

Anti-Bond WORKS!!!!!!! Spray it on and let it soak 5-10 minutes. Then remove the 5200. But if you let it dry it will reharden, so work while it''s still soft. Amazing stuff.

Anti-Bond is probably the way to go...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Stormer: I'm curious; can you elaborate on why 5200 would not be good to "seal the chain plates". It seems to seal everything else so well... does this cause some sort of problem?

Chain plates are subject to wear, damage and stress. As such, they will occassionally need replacement or re-bedding.

If the chain plates need replacement, removal or rebedding and were sealed in place with 5200, trying to get them out is almost impossible, due to the tenacious nature of 3M 5200, which is often considered a permanent adhesive.
