What is adhesive remover and what can the product be used for?

Adhesive and glue removers are products specifically designed to remove adhesive and glue residue from various surfaces including metal, plastic, wood, glass and floors. The products contain chemicals specifically selected to dissolve and remove glue and adhesive.

There are various techniques available for removing adhesive and there is a wide choice of adhesive removers or similar products. Each technique and each adhesive remover has its own advantages and limitations. It is important to choose the right technique and product, depending on the type of glue and the material on which the glue residue is located.

Different types of adhesives

Cyanoacrylates.  Used to solvent weld plastics such as polycarbonates. Once cured cannot be removed.

PVA (Poly Vinyl Acetate). Generally known as wood glue. Used to glue non-porous materials such as wood and some cardboards. During curing excess can be removed with soapy water, but once cured cannot be removed other than mechanically.

EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate). Known as hot melt glue. The best known, most versatile, and most efficient adhesive. EVA does not cure.

Removing adhesive residue from plastic

Removing adhesive residue from plastic can be a challenge because plastic materials are often sensitive to damage from chemical products. It is important to know which type of plastic you have and which products and techniques are suitable, as some types of plastic can deform or discolour if treated incorrectly.

Removing glue from wood 

Removing glue residue from wood requires a specific approach. It is important to choose products and techniques that are specifically designed for removing adhesive residue from wood. Wooden surfaces can also be damaged by heat treatment, so it is advisable to handle this with care. It is important to know what type of wood you have, and which products and techniques are suitable.

Floor adhesive remover

Floor adhesive remover is a specific product designed to remove floor adhesive from various types of floors, including tile floors, wooden floors, and concrete floors. It is an effective way to remove adhesive residue without causing damage to the underlying floor. However, using most floor adhesive removers requires quite a few precautions, as the product often contains chemicals that can be hazardous to health and the environment.

Hot melt remover.

Hot melt or hot melt adhesive is an adhesive made from thermoplastics. The adhesive bond is created by cooling the molten adhesive mass. An important feature of hot melt adhesives is that they do not contain solvents.

Remove carpet adhesive. 

Removing carpet adhesive is a common problem that causes unsightly adhesive residue on your carpet. It is important to choose products and techniques specifically designed for removing carpet adhesive, as some products and techniques can lead to discoloration or damage to the carpet. In some cases, floor coverings and carpet adhesives still contain asbestos. It is important to quickly remove these asbestos-containing adhesives and/or carpets. This may only be done by a recognized company. Eco-Point has a suitable product for this that ensures that asbestos fibers are not spread in the room to be cleaned.
