Hi Guys,

I have to correct my latest bonding error, no, not my wife. Does anybody know a way to break a joint bonded with aliphatic please ? Thanks in advance.

Soaking in acectone, vinegar and water mix will soften it. Steaming will also soften it.

Otherwise, it's a fine glue

Soak in water usually works for me. Depends how deep it goes!

That, comrade, is going to cost you. I would reduce the damage with an offer of a hairdo, a pedicure ( distraction therapy). Check the terms of your will.

I'd try steam Jason, just use some protective clothing and gloves to make sure you don't burn yourself.

Do not use heat. Aliphatic resin polymerises with heat and then never comes apart.

If one applies the glue to bother surfaces and allows it to dry one can then bond them with a domestic iron.

I have bonded leading edge sheet to a wing by this method which I learned from an American mag years ago

That's interesting Peter, thank you! I presume it could then be used for "iron on coverings" such as litespan?

But when hot, it is plastic. The post asks, how to part a joint.

Andy Hardman still had Balsaloc a week or two back. I still can’t persuade him to tell me what’s in Prymol though.

Possibly.I have never tried that but it sounds logical.

 

I just bought some Balsaloc for something else
