No More Scraping, Scrubbing or Incinerating Stuck-On Adhesives

LORD LokRelease 800 and 810 adhesive stripping solutions are special chemical cleaning formulas designed for removing adhesive products used in chemical and product manufacturing tanks, storage vessels, reactors, baths, fixtures, masks, pumps and transfer lines. This cleaning solution takes advantage of Hansen Solubility Parameters, balancing dispersion, polarity and hydrogen bonding to swell dried-on adhesives for easy removal and reducing hazardous waste.

Chemical Cleaning Solution Applications

LokRelease 800 and 810 adhesive stripping solutions can be used where Chemlok, Flocklok and other adhesive products are used. 

  • Tanks, Baths, Storage Vessels & Reactors
  • Fixtures & Masks 
  • Pumps
  • Transfer Lines

How to Use Adhesive Stripping Solution

  1. Expose dried-on LORD adhesive to LokRelease 800 or 810 and agitate solution for faster results
  2. Filter out chunks of media that slough off into the stripping solution
  3. Re-use stripping solution

Typical Chemical Cleaning Solutions
 
Typical solvents dissolve adhesive product into a slurry that must be disposed as hazardous waste. Solvents can remove stuck-on adhesives but dissolves into bulk solvent. However, they are also highly aggresive that require heat and manual scrubbing.
LokRelease Chemical Cleaning Solutions

LokRelease 800/810 causes caked-on adhesive to fall off in large chunks that can be filtered out, so the solution can be re-used. The solution works by swelling dried-on adhesives and is much less aggressive than typical solvents. Using the adhesive stripping solution is a quick process, especially if you agitate the fixture while immersed into the solution. 

Watch LokRelease in Action

This demonstration shows the process of removing Chemlok adhesives using LokRelease 800 adhesive stripping solution. You'll see that just after five minutes of soaking in the cleaning solution, the adhesive starts to swell and with just a little bit of agitation the adhesive begins to peel off.
Get Unstuck: Removing Adhesives from Fixtures
Epoxies, urethanes and Chemlok® adhesives aren’t designed to be removed. Our high-performance rubber-to-metal adhesive sticks to parts, fixtures and mixing equipment – even before they are bonded.
