Thread: How to remove dried superglue on ABS plastic?

    Question How to remove dried superglue on ABS plastic?

    While trying to repair my camera with superglue today, I accidentally spill some on the plastic body. I tried 80% alcohol and lighter fluid, none of them can remove the dried glue. I avoid using nail polish remover on plastic.

    Now, there is a big "blotch" on the plastic surface. Very unsightly!

    Can anybody suggest an effective and safe method to remove the glue?

    Thanks in advance.

    At the DIY shops, there's a superglue debonder. I am not sure if it will work but it claims to be able to remove dried superglue. Test on a small area first to be sure it doesn't "attack" the ABS.

    Yes, the debonder works in getting rid of superglue. Unfortunately, it "eats" the ABS too.
