Duck tape on deck

So I secured an item that I was repairing with duck tape on the deck Andover some stainless. Took it off a few days later. Now have the glue from the duck tape to remove. Any suggestions?

Does this work on the lexan without clouding it? I had to temporarily fix a leak on a polycarbonate window with duct tape last season and have the ugly residue to deal with.

For the OP's stainless or FG I would just try solvents you have available on site, acetone or such. For lexan that's not an option. Would be really interested to find a solution also.

Re: Duck tape on deck

3m adhesive remover sounds promising, although probably not available in Grenada.

Re: Duck tape on deck

WD-40 will dissolve the glue without damaging the plastic.

Also works great to clean up recent Sikaflex or similar.

WD-40, shouldn't hurt anything, I'd test it on the lexan to be sure though.
Soap and water to clean off the WD.

Re: Duck tape on deck

Another product is Goo Gone, I have used this with success also. There are also citrus based cleaner/removers...sorry have not tried them.
I do not have experience using either on Lexan as I use plexiglass. I took blue tape off hatch lens with 3m and used soapy water immediately...no more crazing than the rest of lens over time.



3M General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner #08984.

I use WD40 for duct tape glue as well.

Always tickles me when an owner does a really neat AF job.. clears away his tools and goes home with a satisfied smile..
Then next day the cursing starts as he tries to remove the tape.. that humidity in the evening and the morning dew do wonders for the 'Grip'.. and the neat line goes to crap

Re: Duck tape on deck

When Lexan sheet is first installed, glazing compound and masking paper adhesive can be easily removed by applying naphtha (VM &P) or kerosene with a soft cloth, followed immediately with a thorough soap and water cleaning. DO NOT USE GASOLINE. Adherence to regular and proper cleaning procedures is recommended to preserve appearance.
Lexan ® Polycarbonate Cleaning Instructions | US Plastic Corporation

http://www.ameriluxinternational.com...t_cleaning.pdf

VM&P Naphtha stands for “Varnish Makers and Painter,” and is a petroleum solvent similar in strength to mineral spirits (paint thinner).
