Glue removal

Removing Tactiles Glue

We were asked by a contractor to a council, what could be used to remove glue residue used to fix tactile units to a pavement. Solvents are the answer, so we provided samples of D’Limonene, Bituclean & Citra Force – all worked well.

The process was to apply the product, and let it work for around 10 minutes, then aggitate the surface, and then rinse off with a degreaser (U Beaut) & water.

Citra Force

Glue residue requires a solvent based product to break it down. In the photos below we used both Citra Force & Bituclean . The process involved applying the product and then scrubbing with a stiff bristle broom. Once the residue had been broken down, we rinsed with water and a clean rag.
