  3. For effective removal leave for at least 2 hours. For thick deposits leave for 24 hours. In some cases a second application may be needed.

  • Items adhered with silicone must be separated before using Silicone Remover. Carefully cut the sealant with a sharp blade or try using a piece of strong thin wire wrapped around two dowels as handles. This can be used like a cheese cutter to slice through the silicone.
  • Selleys Silicone Remover will only remove residues. Silicone must be carefully cut away to a depth of less than 1 mm prior to using the product.
  • Wear protective gloves and glasses when using Selleys Silicone Remover.
  • Some highly porous surfaces may retain silicone oil which will be difficult to paint over even after the silicone has been removed.
  • An oily residue will be left on the surface which can be cleaned with a rag soaked in Methylated Spirits.
  • If Silicone Remover is allowed to dry on the surface a white powdery residue will be left. This is harmless and is best cleaned with a wet rag.
  • If you are applying new silicone refer to Selleys Silicone Sealants.
 
  • Clean up with methylated spirits.
