Adhesive Removers

Adhesive removers are solvents formulated to dissolve and remove adhesives, graffiti and gum from a variety of surfaces. They help to loosen or dissolve substances that are not water soluble, although any residue from the adhesive removers themselves can be wiped away with water. For example, gum removers can remove substances such as chewing gum, can-wax and other sticky substances from wood, plastic, carpets, upholstery and vinyl.

How do they work?

Some products, such as types of gum removers, work by freezing the offending material, making it brittle enough to be easily removed or broken off with a scraper or knife, leaving no residue.Adhesive removers work by soaking into the adhesive, breaking down the substance and transforming it into a liquid or paste. Once the adhesive has softened in this way, it can usually be removed with a scraping tool or even a wet cloth.

Adhesive, graffiti and gum removers are usually low-odour and water washable, with most available in liquid or paste form. Paste products are ideal for vertical surfaces to avoid drips and product run, keeping it focused on the affected area.

What are adhesive, graffiti and gum removers used for?

  • School lockers
