CrystalTek Vinyl-Off Vinyl Decal Remover
Vinyl Decal Remover
Environmentally Safe Vinyl and Adhesive Remover
Vinyl-Off is a safe, ready to use product designed to assist in removing vinyl graphics from multiple substrates: metal, glass, canvas, FRP, painted surfaces, gel coat, fiberglass, etc. Vinyl-Off is a productivity enhancement tool (up to 90% less time!) and its benefits are the most obvious on older, difficult to remove vinyl graphics and decals. Used properly it will remove vinyl and 90-98% of the adhesive at the same time.
Just wipe it on, wait a few minutes, and peel off the vinyl and the adhesive, in one step! Take up to 90% less time.You'll save HOURS of labor!
And a surprise bonus...it's about as safe as bath soap! CrystalTek only makes products that are environmentally safe and biodegradable. VINYL OFF is also non-flammable and water soluble.
One Gallon typically covers approximately 1500 square feet of vinyl.
1. Wipe Vinyl-Off onto ONLY the vinyl you want to remove using: a pad, sponge, foam brush, fine nap roller, paper towel, etc.
A little goes a long way. “Less is More”
2. Allow a few minutes dwell time, and then begin (very little waiting needed). Vinyl-Off penetrates the vinyl and attacks the adhesive behind it. You won’t usually see changes to the vinyl. Dwell time will vary based on vinyl thickness and age.
3. For best results, warm surfaces immediately before removal. Warm to the touch. Sun warmed on a warm day is perfect!
Non-Flammable and no toxic fumes! So you can use a heat gun or propane to warm the surface even indoors!
4. Lift an edge and pull. The vinyl will come off in larger pieces because it has been rejuvenated. Most of the adhesive should come with the vinyl. If it leaves the adhesive behind, Vinyl-Off is being too aggressive! Use less heat or shorten the dwell time if this occurs.
5. Remove any remaining adhesive by either re-applying Vinyl-Off or applying Adhesive-Off. Wipe off.
Test – Test – Test A little planning can save you a lot of effort!
We also recommend starting with a small area and determining the best method of dwell time, amount of heat, and angle of pull.
What about paint?
VINYL-OFF will not harm properly catalyzed automotive paint. If there are concerns of Vinyl-Off effecting paint, wet the area around the vinyl selected for removal with water prior to applying Vinyl-Off.
A1. Occasionally temporary softening has been reported mostly on recently painted equipment and aged surfaces with heavy oxidation. Painted surfaces returned to their previous condition when Vinyl-Off evaporated or was gently rinsed with water or both.
A2. Some non-primed, non-catalyzed paint may be seriously affected by this product. E.g. Do not use this on Aluma-Lite substrates unless you pretest or want the paint removed as well. Properly catalyzed paint is generally not affected.
A3. Paint that was not correctly cured prior to graphics being applied (common in aftermarket repair work) may be an issue no matter which method of vinyl removal is used.
Is it vinyl?
Vinyl-Off only removes vinyl. If the product you are removing is not vinyl, or if it is coated in such a way that the Vinyl-Off cannot get to it, it may react differently, and sometimes not at all.
If your graphic’s ink gets slimy, decrease the amount of Vinyl-Off you’re using! Remember that a little goes a long way.
When should you use Vinyl-Off?
Crews report that Vinyl-Off speeds removals, but few use it on the easier jobs, (“removable” vinyl). Vinyl-Off is particularly touted when the job is difficult or almost impossible to remove.
