Removing Tube Paint

Is there any way of removing tube paint from fabric impression hypalon? Are there any chemicals that can be used that won't damage the material itself? I am only trying to remove a very thin 'wash coat' that has aged terribly and not the thick tar like finish that is often seen. All suggestions/experiences appreciated. Thanks.

Try thinners with a Scotchbrite pad, but go gently as not to take the surface off of the Hypalon.

If that fails, try the same process with Acetone, but be even more gentle with acetone. It will soften the surface temporarily.
