5200 Bond

Has anyone had success in using WD40 or lighter fluid in getting 5200 to release it's bond on porthole windows? I know there is a product out there for this application but I'm just looking for a cheaper alternative.

I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!

Sweat.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: 5200 Bond

Misfits,

Bummer, dude... Now you know why 5200 is almost always the wrong choice for projects.

Anti-bond's probably the best alternative out there, but it's still gonna require a lot of work.

FWIW, for polysufide sealants I've had great success using PB Blaster as a bond breaker and to clean surfaces back to bare (but that probably won't help you for this one.)

Re: 5200 Bond

A buddy of mine claims to have had good luck with a new product called un-hesive. You can get it from Defender here.

I haven't had a chance to try it yet myself so YMMV.

A hammer was too expensive for me to buy to bang in a nail, so I'm trying to find a cheaper screwdriver???

I just don't get it.

5200 is Satan's Glue, and unless it's all dried out and can come apart with sloooow pressure and wooden wedges, anti bond is about the ONLY thing I've ever heard of that works on that crap.

Beats breaking the ports.

Good luck.

Re: 5200 Bond

I pulled a bronze port from a derelict wood boat yesterday. It was stuck in with what I assume was 5200 - if it wasn't it was the same rose by a different name. The port was very heavy & sturdy so I tried a variety of destruction methods - chisels, pry-bars etc.

Chewed up the wood pretty well but no movement of the port - at all.

Finally I tried a razor knife with the extendable segmented blades (Olfa). I slit it around the flange against the inside cabin side and then from the outside around the spigot. Had to repeat this a few times until I was sure I had bottomed out the knife from both directions.

After that it was a matter of prying on the flange and tapping on the spigot until it suddenly popped out onto the cabin sole.

If it was plastic you'd have to take it easier on the prying & tapping but it should work - if the plastic hasn't gone UV brittle.

I knew I'd heard of an alternative & it was for polysufide sealants, thanks.

JimMcGee, thanks for the link. I'll order some in the am & post how it works.

Stu, getting cynical in your old age

SJB, yea it's going to be a slow painfull process. The salon ports are fixed & aluminum frames so I don't want to trash them. The smaller portlights are going to be replaced w/ opening ports but I'd still like to take them out in
a professional maner

Thanks,
Bob

Re: 5200 Bond

When they remove an old car windshield, they use a wire. Thread it through, wrap it around a piece of wood on each side of the window, pull it around, cutting the sealant.

Just saying.
