Removing Loctite 518
- This is the best stuff I've used for putting together aluminum cases, VW and otherwise. But if you have to split a case, it can stick like crazy and is hard to remove.
I emailed Loctite, and they said to use their proprietary material "Chisel". Well, couldn't find it at Lowe's. Went back to my computer and took a look at the materials list for the stuff and found it had methylene chloride. My chemist background told me this was key.
I used an aerosol paint remover that had methylene chloride prominently on its materials list, and the stuck-on 518 came off like poopie off the baby's bottom! Oh, what a happy baby!
So, a quick tip for you guys.
