Default Found a product that will remove MMM5200.

I found this product online and ordered a can of it. A fishing buddy of mine put his trim tab planes on wrong and he used 5200. I was able to pry the stainless steel mounting bracket off the boat because it had only been on for 2 days. I have tried everything to cut 5200 and as anyone else that has tried it you end up with a slimy sticky mess. Well this stuff works better than anything I have tried before. I found that if I left it on for a few minutes before trying to get off the 5200 it worked better.

Anyway....just a customer service alert if anyone is looking for a product to remove 5200:

Two minutes with a propane torch on the stainless and it would have fallen right off.

Great advice, I wasn't aware that heat would remove 5200. Does it burn off or just become soft so you can scrape it off?

I was just watching Florida Sportsman dreamboat earlier today and the guy used a spray that he said would help with 5200 but of course he didn't mention the name. Thanks for saving me a search later!

How do you remove the 5200 from the boat?

I use a heat gun works great but If I could us a spray without the heat, may work better in many applications thanks for the help.

plastic scraper for most of it while keeping it warm with the gun, then adhesive remover for whatever remains.

FWIW, I have tried debond, and it works, the problem is there are many applications where you can not get the debond into contact with the 5200, i.e. under rail fittings, etc.
You have to loosen the fittings first and that's where the heat gun comes in handy.

The trick is to use some 100lb+ uncoated spectra to "cut" the 5200 then spray more. Worked perfect for a super snug transducer.

Debond has been on the market for 10+ years.
Great that it worked for you.

Too much heat and fiberglass can be real bad juju.
