My friend was trying to super glue acpvc barrel onto a titan and got some into the valve that releases air into the barrel and wants to know how to disolve it. Can anyone help?

Acetone. Sold in hardware stores as a solvent or as nail polish remover. Some nail polish remover is non-acetone, and will not work. So if you use it, make sure yours is.

Ive heard of some people using zippo lighter fluid, acetone is probably your best bet though.

Anything that you use to get rid of the super glue will also most likely destroy the rubber, used to make the tank airtight. As far as we know, that tank is fucked, unless there is a special product specially designed just for super glue.

Helpful info on Super Glue: It will adhere on contact with moisture, so pouring water on a surface or yourself will only make the bond stronger, rather than help remove it.

If at first you don't succeed, add more epoxy.

Like I said, acetone. It will not destroy the rubber.

Nail polish remover. Err... my mom got some from a friend but she never uses it. Also there's this "super glue remover" you can get at ACE.

If it helps I think cooking oil works well for removing super glue. but i would say use nail polish remover.

This cooking oil your talking about is most likely vegetable or olive oil and will not aid in removing super glue. It works well as a lube though. :ph34r:

Maybe you should buy some plastic glue from Games Workshop. That stuff is amazing. It dries super fast.
