    Does anyone have a good way of dissolving or compromising a Plexus adhesive bond? I have an two FRP parts bonded together, and want to minimise the grinding involved. Is there a chemical solution?

    Plexus is designed not to come loose easily and is very chemical-resistant.
    If anyone would know, it would be the inventors and purveyors of the stuff, Illinois Tool Works:
