Today, a lot of modern building materials with amazing properties have been invented. About most of them, quite recently, we did not hear anything. For example, liquid nails can also be attributed to this category. Although, of course, they are not suitable for the definition of “new products of recent years”, but, nevertheless, this adhesive composition has become widely used relatively recently. On this composition and adhesive, to hold tightly glued things. This is the main function of liquid nails. But, as you know, everything that we once stuck, over time, be sure to unstick. With liquid nails, this situation also happens.
Remove liquid nails. What and how can they be removed?
And sometimes they need to be removed simply because of the erroneous application of some material. It often happens that the tile is glued to this adhesive, and suddenly you decided to change this tile . Again, you need to somehow tear it off. But, liquid nails, when they are completely dry, hold a very serious load. This ability is quite possible to compare them even with bolts, or other similar fixing components. To successfully separate the surfaces that were glued together with liquid nails, and then remove their remnants and remove, you need to know some of the features of this material.
Well, when you come to your senses in time. That is, mistakenly applied liquid nails, and quickly changed their mind, decided to remove them. At the same time they did not have time to dry. Then they can be easily washed even with running water. Another option is to use a mineral solvent for this. Both the water and the solvent are not dried liquid nails quickly enough to remove.
If the liquid nails have already dried up well, and you have missed the time, then you can remove them only with special cleaners. If you did not find such cleaners, take a scraper in your hands, and try to clean the surface with it. But, it is not necessary to press strongly on it, otherwise you will damage the surface to be cleaned.
It is important to know what temperature liquid nails hold. And it is from minus 40 and up to plus 50. The direct sun does not like liquid nails, they are afraid of it. If you have glued some items, you can just leave them under the sun. If it is hot, then this is ideal. When heated and from direct sun, liquid nails move well away from the surface. Here it is most convenient to work again with a scraper.
Precautions when removing liquid nails
If you are going to work with solvents or with any cleaners, then they are all extremely aggressive. In this case, the skin must be protected. So, gloves for this work are required. Also need to work only in protective clothing.
Some more features when removing liquid nails
This sealant is currently made on two bases. It is aqueous (not so aggressive), and when it is based on a solvent. The basis is chosen based on the requirements that this adhesive should meet.

In fact, liquid nails are a very good adhesive, which easily holds serious loads. So, if you have already frozen this sealant, then it is best to look for special compounds that can dissolve it.
