How to remove adhesive from plastic?

Adhesives hold things together by forming strong molecular bonds, so to separate things, you need to break the adhesive that holds them together. Depending on the type and strength of the particular adhesive, you can usually use vinegar to safely remove the adhesive from the plastic. You need to ensure that the liquid used to remove the adhesive does not damage the surface of the material. It is best to first test the liquid mixture by smearing it in an inconspicuous area. Removing adhesives with vinegar is most effective on surfaces made of plastic. Another way you can try to break the molecular bonds that hold things together without damaging the material is to freeze the material. This can be done by placing objects with adhesive in the fridge or by rubbing ice cubes in plastic bags over the adhesive. This causes the adhesive to harden and crumble, making it easier to scrape off.


What needs to be focused on when removing the adhesive?

① Some removers can remove or damage the surface of some plastic parts. Test a small area first to make sure there are no adverse effects.

② Check the label of the removal product you choose to make sure it is safe to use on plastic surfaces.

③ Do not use emery cloth or scrub pad to scrub adhesives on plastic surfaces. The abrasive surface creates fine scratches on the plastic surface and results in a dull, turbid area.

④ If you can’t loosen the adhesive with a soft cloth, try to blot it dry with a remover and wipe it gently with your fingers (wearing rubber gloves to help protect your hands). Continue to apply more remover and rub the adhesive until it is loose and can be rubbed off.

⑤ Heating the adhesive with a hairdryer can also help loosen it. Keep the hairdryer a few inches away; Don’t hold it too close or you may damage the plastic.
