Directions for using Re-mov/DSR5

As a rule of thumb, products that do not harden, i.e., most caulks, contact adhesives, labels, decals, tape residue, gum, sap, tar and wax can be removed with Re-mov. Hardened products such as Super Glue, two part epoxies, urethane floor coatings and varnishes cannot be removed with Re-mov.


For silicone, polyurethane, and polysulfide caulks, first cut away any excess caulking then work Re~mov from the edge(s) of the bond with a putty knife or scraper. Re~mov will work its way under the caulk and release the bond. If residue remains, simply reapply to the area and wipe it clean with a clean cloth. If you spray an area by mistake, either wipe it dry or let it evaporate, the caulking will not be affected.

Contact Cement/Glue/Liquid Nails

Coat the area with Re-mov and let it sit. The longer it remains on the adhesive the easier your job becomes. Then wipe the area with a clean cloth. If any residue remains, repeat the first step. When using Re-mov to remove carpet or headliners, spray the surface heavily, wait at least 15 minutes and test a portion of the item to be removed. If the item remains secure, re-apply Re~mov™ and wait an additional 15 minutes before removing the item. With Liquid Nails™ if wet: just spray and wipe, if dry: spray and let stand for 30 minutes minimum then pick up Liquid Nails™ residue and dispose of.

Polyurethane Expanding Foams

Spray the contaminated area with Re-mov and wipe the area with a clean cloth, note once the foam has cured [6 hrs +] Re-mov will not be effective in removing the residue.

Tape/Labels/Stickers/Decals/Pin Stripping/Protective Film

First, apply the item to be removed and let sit for about half a minute. You will notice that Re-mov penetrates from the edges inward. Use a sharp object to work the edges and re-apply Re~mov™. Once there is enough material to grab, slowly begin pulling the item away from the adhesive while applying Re~mov™ to the back of the item. It should pull away with ease.
