Hello guys,
can you give me advise about RTV silicone rubber?
What what can dissolve RTV silicone rubber?

RE: RTV silicone rubber

silicone oils.

RE: RTV silicone rubber

Uncured silicone will dissolve in naphtha and probably acetone. Once cured, silicone will not dissolve but it will swell and become much weaker and easier to rub off.

RE: RTV silicone rubber

Dichloromethane degrades silicone so it readily breaks up using mechanical means, however it also attacks light metals and almost all organic materials, plus it's a probable carcinogen.

RE: RTV silicone rubber

Dichloromethane do not working

RE: RTV silicone rubber

How long did you leave it? I'm not aware of anything which breaks down RTV immediately, you will need to leave it to soak for an extended period until the RTV starts to swell and weaken.

RE: RTV silicone rubber

@ScottyUK it was about 8 hours. From fisrt 2 hours RTV swell and weaken than nothimk happent.
