sikaflex removing agent

Hi folk, made a right mess today trying to stick bow/anchor warp rubber onto bow rubbing strake, i used black sikaflex which i know will bond once cured but i got some on the orange hypalon so its now a wee bit smugged after trying to remove it.
Will the sikaflex do any harm to the hypalon? and what is going to be best solution to remove excess?
Regards gramas

Your best bet is to try and get it off before it's had time to fully go off. Cold slows it down so you should be ok at the moment. Acetone will get it off (and a rag). If you don't have any use nail varnish remover - same thing. Failing that, I'd be tempted to use some petrol on a rag - won't damage the hypalon. Get it before it goes off!

Swarfega Blackbox: Swarfega Black Box Heavy-Duty Trade Hand Wipes (150) | eBay Will deal with it within the next couple of weeks and not damage the hypalon or you, fantastic versatile things!

Other than that, 501 glue thinners will do the job but I prefer black box.
