Anyone know a product that's good for removing/cleaning Sikaflex?
I've got some covered on a knife and few other tools and stuff, and it would not all come off from wiping when it was wet, and I really don't feel like sitting there picking it, just wondering if there's an easier way. A product that disolves it or soemthing?

acetone is the go, we use sikaflex at work and we also use a s**t of acetone and it gets it off good.

Hardware stores, in the paint section with the rest of the solvents.

A lot of nail polish removers have none or very little acetone in them these days.

Thinners will remove it also.
