Moment glue is often used in everyday life for minor repairs of various products. Sometimes the mixture remains on hands, clothes or other objects. The composition quickly sets and hardens on the surface, which complicates the task of its removal. It is useful for everyone to know how to wipe off the glue moment without spoiling the contaminated thing.
Features of the composition
The Moment universal glue has a very complex composition.
Let's highlight the main components that are contained in the adhesive mixture:
- polychloroprene rubbers;
- dimethyl ketone;
- ethyl acetate;
- phenolic-formaldehyde resins;
- aliphatic hydrocarbons;
- special additives that make the mixture inert to chemicals;
- colophon resin.
Due to this composition, the material has high technical characteristics. The solution is able to glue almost any material. The mixture dries quickly on the surface, forming a strong bonding film.
In the modern building materials market, there are several modifications of the Moment glue , which differ in certain qualities, composition and field of application. If we talk about a universal mixture, then it is suitable for repairing any small items. It is the universal glue "Moment" that is most often used in everyday life.
This composition has unique characteristics.
- Versatility of application. The mixture can bond almost any material.
- Water resistance. The glue can be used to repair items that are exposed to water and moisture during operation.
- The solution can be used after it has been frozen and thawed. The adhesive will not lose its technical characteristics when exposed to low temperatures.
- It is flammable. It is necessary to work with it away from sources of fire. Products treated with this product must not be exposed to high temperatures.
How can you wash it off?
Superglue is appreciated by many consumers for its excellent technical characteristics. The mixture quickly and reliably glues a wide variety of materials. The advantages of this tool become its disadvantages when it comes to how to clean the surface of the glue.
Superglue has good moisture resistance, so the mixture cannot be washed with plain water. An exception may be fresh traces of the solution, which have not yet had time to dry.
In building stores you can buy a special cleaner "Antikley". This mixture can be used not only for cleaning various objects, but also for the skin of the hands. "Anticle" does not cause allergic reactions and does not damage the skin, but you should not keep the mixture on the body for too long.
In addition to special formulations for removing glue, you can also use available tools at home. When choosing one or another cleaning method, it is worth considering the type of surface from which the remaining adhesive must be removed.
You can remove traces of superglue using the following folk remedies:
- cosmetic product for removing nail polish;
- refined gasoline;
- White Spirit;
- oily cosmetic cream or edible oils;
- food salt;
- soap solution;
Contaminated surface areas can be acted upon not only chemically, but also mechanically. The mechanical method must be used with extreme caution, especially when it comes to the skin of the hands. To remove the glue using this method, you will need fine-grained sandpaper or a piece of pumice stone.
Cleaning methods for different surfaces
The adhesive mixture can leave marks on a wide variety of surfaces. Hands, floors and clothes are most susceptible to contamination. Despite the fact that superglue is a fairly durable material, it is quite possible to clean it off. It is only important to choose the right product and the right method that will be suitable for the material that needs to be washed.
Superglue leaves quite noticeable marks on clothes and shoes. However, if a drop of the mixture gets on the fabric, it does not mean that the thing can be thrown away. Fresh traces from the adhesive mixture can be removed in warm water. The contaminated area must be abundantly moistened and rubbed with laundry soap. After which the item is thoroughly rinsed out.
If the fabric is of high quality and dense, then for the best result vinegar essence is added to the water. Jeans or trousers made of rough fabric can be exposed to hot water (80 degrees) in order to soften the glue better.
Dried marks on clothing or fabric covers can be chemically wiped off. For this purpose, refined gasoline, a special agent "Antikley", oils of vegetable and animal origin, "Dimexidum" and various solvents are suitable. The contaminated area is moistened with the chosen product and the stain is rubbed thoroughly.
The adhesive "blots" on the jacket can be exposed to cold. It is important to make sure that the mixture does not spread over the fabric, but rather sticks to the area as a thick layer. Clothes with a frozen glue drop are placed in the freezer and left for several hours. Small cracks should appear on the surface of the glue, after which the item can be removed from the freezer. The stain is cleaned with a metal brush.
It is not recommended to use solvents on delicate fabrics. In this case, it is better to use the most gentle methods to remove traces of glue. A solution of 20 grams of citric acid and 200 milliliters of water can cope with such contamination.
You can remove superglue from suede with ammonia or nail polish remover. For the best effect, before applying ammonia or acetone to the contaminated area, suede items should be held over steam for six minutes.
You can remove dried glue from the surface of the carpet with petroleum jelly and hand sanitizer. The contaminated area is impregnated with liquid paraffin, after which an antiseptic is applied. On the treated glue spot, you need to put several paper towels, previously soaked in water. After thirty minutes, the napkins can be removed, and the contaminated surface can be rinsed with warm water.
During repair work, glue drops quite often fall on the floor surface.
The dirt remover must be selected based on the material with which the floor is covered or covered.
- Adhesive traces on linoleum can be washed off with White Spirit.
- You need to be more careful when cleaning parquet flooring. Dimethyl sulfoxide, a varnish remover or Antikley will help to remove the Moment glue from such a surface.
- The safest way to remove adhesive from laminate flooring is DMSO.
Use nail polish remover to remove adhesive from wood furniture and other wood surfaces. Care must be taken when working with varnished surfaces. Such material must not be exposed to alcohol-containing agents and solvents. The lacquered table can be cleaned with vegetable oils. The stain is well saturated with oil and left for several hours, after which the glue can be easily removed from the surface.
Plastic and glass
If glue gets on the window panes, it can be removed with a conventional glass cleaner. The rest of the mixture can be gently cleaned off with a utility knife or razor. Superglue marks on glasses are removed with a cosmetic nail polish remover that does not contain acetone.
It is possible to effectively and safely wipe off the Moment glue from the surface of the screen of a phone, laptop, personal computer monitor and other equipment using dimethyl sulfoxide. Wipe the contaminated areas with a cloth soaked in the solution, after which the surface must be cleaned with special napkins for equipment or with a dry soft cloth.
From metal surfaces, Moment glue can be cleaned with acetone-containing liquids, denatured alcohol, vinegar essence, nitromethane and refined gasoline. Solvents can have different effects on different types of metal. Therefore, before removing the adhesive from the surface, it is advisable to test the selected solution on an inconspicuous area of the surface.
If the selected agent does not completely dissolve the glue on the metal, then the residues must be cleaned off with a knife or blade. It is not recommended to subject stainless steel products to mechanical stress. Such a surface is easily scratched.
When working with Moment glue, traces of it most often remain on the nails or skin of the hands. To remove such contamination, it is necessary to choose the most gentle product that does not cause irritation and chemical burns on the skin.
Glue stains can be treated with vegetable oil. The oil needs to be rubbed a little into the skin, after which you can gradually peel off the glue.
To remove superglue from your hands, you can prepare a special solution of soap, water, and table salt. In the resulting mixture, the skin is soaked for fifteen minutes, after which the dirt is easily cleaned off with a sponge.
When carrying out minor repairs using Moment glue, you should take care of some measures to protect your hands and various surfaces. When carefully gluing objects, there are no traces of the product. But even if you handle the adhesive mixture with extreme care, there is still a chance of getting dirty.
It is necessary to work with such a mixture with rubber gloves. Cloth gloves must not be used, as the material can react chemically with the adhesive. Large amounts of heat can cause burns.
The work area must also be protected from contact with the adhesive. The surface of the table must be covered with an old plastic tablecloth or cellophane. An apron can be used to protect clothing from glue.
