Perspex/Plexi/Acrylic

Postby Ms Wolffie » Sun Dec 07, 2014 6:23 am

I have finally got my machine going and did an edgelit piece.
However, it looks like my perspex has been standing for too long an I can't get the paper off.
Anyone know what I can use to dissolve the glue without damaging the material?
TIA
Wolffie

Heat gun works ... Or maybe a blow dryer in a pinch !

Wolfie, saturate it with Shellite (naptha). That is pour it on and spread it with a rag then peel off. If that does'nt work throw it out. You can use Metho too.
