Paint on PVC Tubes!!!

I was acting as a safety boat at the weekend for a raft race and had to rescue a raft which had sunk. I now have blue paint on my white tubes and not very happy about it.

I have tried Rib Revie but it has not been able to remove the paint. Was wondering if any one had a suggestion on how to remove the paint?

Hi,

maybe give pro marine Rib shine a go. I wouldn't recommend it on a dark tubed rib but for lighter tubes it's worth a try. But wear gloves as it really is rather strong and powerful stuff.

The PvC glue advises acetone to clean the PVC . It doesn't seem to effect it if just used sparingly to clean off paint glue or dirty marks .

I would try either acetone or a bit of cream cleaner.
