    What removes most of it, without attacking the 100 % Nylon outer surface ?


    Thanks
    Richard

    Hi, Richard. http://www.crosslinktech.com/Articles/100 How to remove cured materials.pdf .
    Personally, if it will fit, I'd chuck it in a lathe and shave/scrape off a minimum with a sharp blade. If you can stand losing a miniscule amount of material, bead-blasting will be very quick and painless unless there is buildup of the poly, then there is the risk of digging into the nylon while trying to get it all.
    I'm not going to pretend to know the information firsthand but this company says heating it will work. Now, enough heat will destroy the nylon...but maybe some heat and a scraper. Crosslinked, polyurathane doesn't dissolve well by solvents I know (MEK, acetone, alcohol. thinners, etc.)

    You could simply cut off both sleeves and make your jacket a Vest .

    Or...take contrasting colours of International, load into a paint gun, then blast the jacket. The artistic colour blend with be appealing to many...sell on Amazon dot com

    Or.. My buddy Homer operates the controls at the CERN Large Hadron Collider and has a sideline...weekends stuff...of turning out " black Ho's." Homer told me youre welcome to swing by, jump inside with your jacket on when he will throws the levers down and he will bombard the International Neutrinos out of your jacket. Might work...no guarantee..

    Now, we have the additional question of how to remove drug-abuse induced ramblings without damaging underlying access to free expression forums. Sorry Richard, be patient and somebody might show with a better answer.
    I just thought of something... I don't think that the poly stuck too well to the nylon. Perhaps heat, alone, will swell it and make it easy to peal off.

    I suppose anything is worth a try, what have you got to loose.

    I'm affraid nothing will seperate the two.

    How about sewing a cool patch over it?

    Vaudville & sitdown comedy are doing well.

    I will try the heatgun first.
    I tried www.interlux.com & interluxpaints.com..... both never loaded.

    Heatgun in hand I look down & see the paint has a crack in it.
    Start scratching with my thumbnail. ALL GONE. My thumbnail.

    Took enough off so I can wear it anywhere again.

    Thanks for the " satire ".

    Better to be lucky then know everything. Luck beats knowledge EVERY time.


    MOOOO HAAAA HAAAAA

    Way to go cyclops!

    I was going to suggest calling Interlux help line.

    I've had good luck with it in the past but it sounds like you're on your way.
