Rubber cheese - for old glue removal

Been reading through lots of posts.

Seems the folks across the pond use something called "rubber cheese" to remove old glue.

Does anyone here know what the product is called in the U.S. and where I might be able to get some?

There was also a suggestion of creating a block of glue (from a glue gun) and using that for old glue removal...just thought I'd throw that in here in case someone is going through the same thing.

Looking forward to your advice.

Thank you.

That might just be our station that calls it rubber cheese.
It does disintegrate when your using it so may be made of slightly harder glue?

rubber cheese

Thought I'd put this out to U.S. and Canada subscribers to see if they know what it's called here. So far, no replies. Thanks for checking with your contact at Typhoon...Look forward to your reply. Thanks again.

I think you are probably refering to the material called "Crepe". Mostly used by shoe manufacturers for the soles of shoes. It is excellent for removing excess glue if used with a small bit of thinners to soften the glue first. We use it the whole time in the factory.

It is not easy to find, but we can supply if need be. 10 pieces for 15.00 plus postage and packing to USA of 5.00

Rubber cheese - crepe soling

Hi Christopher,

Thanks for the info. I'll try to find it in the states and if no luck can order it through your company. I found a company here that looks to sell that type of product. Their link is

http://www.american-biltrite.com/Gen...Prod_Shoe.html

They have a couple different crepe soling products of various thicknesses, etc.

Do you have more specific info on the specs of the type you use?

Also, while we're at it, can you give me a ballpark estimate to replace tubes on an '85 Novurania...factory believes it to be Italian made vs. U.S. made... Model# MX PKD 01712 MDNA (picture attached).

Thank you for your help.

Cameron

Might also look at Cratex (might be Kratex; don't remember) products; they are an abrasive rubber compound mounted on an arbor, used in Dremel type tools (smaller sizes) or hand-held electric drills (larger sizes.)

They're used in lapidary and gunsmithing shops pretty often.

As with any abrasive material on inflatable boat fabric, go slow if you use them.

Old glue removal - Kratex / Cratex

jky,

Thanks for the tip. I will look for that. I was thinking a dremmel tool used very carefully might work well for old glue removal. Thanks again. - Cameron

Cratex abrasives (link attached) - for glue removal

jky,

found them here: http://www.cratex.com/rubindx.htm

website states they are "rubberized abrasives"...that sounds promising. I'm going to do some more research on their site.

thanks again.

Just an idea for you. There is a product which looks and feels very like crepe rubber. It is used for unclogging abrasive sanding belts and sanding discs. It comes as a bar about 50mm square section and it is used by feeding into the belt, it's grippy and drags debris from between the abrasive. Of course it also gets itself sanded away on the process. I guess it'll be available in other shapes and sizes for various applications.
