Question
Options for CA debonders in Australia?

Hey Guys,

For any RC Group members based in Australia what do you guys use for CA debonding?

I'm currently using a combination of the Zap Debonder and Acetone from Home and Hardware. It's OK but it's not great.

Doc Austin has waxed Lyrical about this,

Any ideas where to source this in Australia? However if any of you are using that's just as good I'm all ears.

Thanks in advance guys.

All the Best

Danny

Dan I've used 'glue buster' by deluxe that you can purchase from Christan traders it's the only debounder that I have used and it's OK but I would't say that it's great.

I've rebuilt no fewer than 4 3DHS and EF planes and I still never bought or used debonder. I use acetone with a modeling brush usually used for epoxy application. You just have to be careful with it around covering and paint, but so too with debonder. It's about the same price for a quart than for 4 ounces of debonder. Tower does ship internationally tho.

Yeah, I've always just used straight acetone myself.
Nitromethane is right up there with it. Maybe get a small amount from a racing shop or something?
The de-bonders are likely made using one or the other, or both, with some other ingredients to promote slower evaporation.
(So it will stay active on the 'problem' area for longer)

Careful with all that stuff, of course. (Especially the pure nitro.)

Hey Guys,

Many thanks for this. It's good to know Tower Hobbies ship internationally.

The other night I had a servo screw stuck in and I had some Hobby King Uncure. I gave it a run and it worked. That being said I'll revisit the acetone gig with the modelling brush as well.

Thanks guys.
