Topic tags/keywords: melamine fastedge

I used the fast cap fast edge on this cabinet I’m building and it leaves quite the residue. I’m not sure if they’ve changed the adhesive, but seems way worse than it was in years past.

Anyhow, I’ve tried goo gone, and it worked but leaves a haze, I tried some citrus adhesive remover, and I think it started to remove more than I was looking to.

Thanks in advance!

I’ve always used Naptha to remove adhesives. When I did laminate counter tops I would use Naptha to clean up any adhesive that was on the surface.

I like it because it doesn’t bother most finishes. (lacquers, paint, varnishes, etc.). You can get it at the big box stores like Lowes or Home Depot. It will be with the paint thinners, etc.

Goo Gone is also good.

I couldn’t find any naphtha at my shop or any lighter fluid, but used denatured alcohol and that seemed to do the trick.
