- Carogna Remover should be spread on the whole gluing surface using a small brush. We recommend to completely cover mastic traces with a thick layer (around 1 mm) of Remover. Thanks to its high viscosity, Carogna Remover won’t drip down but stay where you put it, on top of the mastic, dissolving it.
WARNING #1: immediately clean Carogna Remover if any excess goes on rim decals, as some might be dissolved.
WARNING #2: do not apply on the tubular base tape! While it could certainly function on the mastic there, Carogna Remover might weaken the adhesion of the base tape to the tubular casing.
- Allow Carogna Remover time to work: depending on the mastic type, thickness and ageing, more time might be need. Once the old mastic is covered with Remover, the wheel can be hung somewhere and checked from time to time (between 2 to 12 hours), trying to scrape the mastic away using a plastic tire lever or an old rag. If mastic is still holding strong, allow more time.
- When the old mastic is “cooked”, Carogna Remover will have it softened and turned it into gel: it can, at this point, be removed using a cloth or a plastic tire lever.
How many wheels can be done with a 150 ml tube of Carogna Remover?
This depends a lot on how much you put on each wheel. It’s realistically between 4 and 8 wheels.
Does it have an expiry date?
The chemicals used are stable. We warranty it for two years from the date of purchase.
If someone leaves it in his shed and freezes during winter time will it lose it effectiveness?
