How to rot silicone sealant?
« on: January 01, 2011, 19:47:21 PM »
I have some massive split rims(16x11J) that will not fit in the oven, i do this normally to elasticise the silicone sealant people use instead of sealing rings, so they will then come apart...

These do not what to budge, i had one in the dishwasher at max temp whilst everybody was in bed the other night but this was of no help as it needed to be hotter, is there a chemical that would be easy to source that will rot silicone over a period of time, i dont mind soaking these for a week or so??

Having used it myself with success, I suspect those negative reviews are by people who didn't know how to use it. It does have limitations - it won't dissolve a massive lump like a bath seal simply by chucking it on top and waiting five minutes! Your meant to pull/cut the majority of it off and use this to clean of the last 10% which is the hard bit to do.
