    I overheated my molded part and the Partall #2 has stuck to the part. What is the best way to remove. The resin is epoxy.

    Partall is water soluble but you need hot water to dissolve it. Haven't tried it with "cooked" partall. How does it looked? Brownish? gooey?

    Greyish and gooey. Will try the hot water and scrubbing.

    Might work. I know the Partall is PVA or Poly Vynil Acetate (or Alcolhol), the type they use in laminated glass.
