E6000 is a powerful industrial multi-purpose adhesive. Its strength, flexibility of use and good adhesion have made the product the main glue in jewelry, everyday life and craft. However, you need to be careful when using it, as it is difficult to remove and contains toxic substances. E6000 adhesive removers also contain irritating or toxic solvents.
Method 1 of 3: Remove glue from skin
Step 1. React immediately if your skin hardens from the glue
This can irritate her.
Step 2. Wipe the area with glue remover
Use an exfoliating scrub if you can't remove the glue with just liquid.
Step 3. Dampen a paper towel with benzine thinner or acetone nail polish remover and apply to the area for a few minutes
Try removing the glue again with glue remover.
Please note that prolonged skin contact with acetone or benzine solvents can also cause irritation
Step 4. Wash your skin thoroughly with soap and water
Method 2 of 3: Removing glue from items
Step 1. Isolate the area to which you will apply the solvent
Place the item on top of a stack of newspapers in a well-ventilated area.
Step 2. Put on rubber gloves and protect other skin areas with thick clothing
Step 3. Brush the area liberally with acetone nail polish remover or benzine thinner
E6000 hardens by evaporation of the solvents. And adding solvents back to the adhesive should weaken it.
If you are worried that these substances may ruin or break the object, then test them on an area of the object before removing the adhesive
Step 4. Wait 10-30 minutes
You better not breathe in these substances: leave the room. Go back and see if the glue has removed.
Apply more acetone or WD-40 in case the solvent runs off the item. Use a small amount of gasoline if the item is durable and will withstand the solvent
Step 5. Wash the item in water using a dishwasher
Repeat as necessary.
Method 3 of 3: Removing the Industrial E6000
Step 1. If possible, separate the part to which you will apply the solvent
For example, if you want to remove the E6000 from a part of the machine, try removing it from the machine to avoid splashing solvent on other parts.
Step 2. Put on rubber gloves, a respirator and go to a non-flammable area, such as concrete
You should remove the E6000 in a well-ventilated area.
Step 3. Pour some gasoline into a container
Dip the item in the container for 10-30 minutes. You can use Chevron 1000 oil based product.
Be careful when lowering the item into the container. Splashing can cause fire
Step 4. Do not bring the heat close while the glue comes off
Step 5. Pull out the object and try to peel off what you wanted from it
If it still holds well, soak the item in the container for another half hour and try again.
Step 6. Flush the part with mineral solvents or other cleaning agents
Remove all water, oil and solvents with harmful substances. Do not pour this into drains or drains.
- Dry cleaning solvents can also remove E6000. Most of these solvents are banned for private use because they emit CFCs that deplete the ozone layer.
- Try scraping off the glue with a knife if you can't dip the part in the solvent.
