12 yr old SolarLux NGR Disolved plastic cup


I poured a small amount of SolarLux into a plastic cup and begin applying. About 5 min into the job the cup sprung a leak. I sat it down to investigate and in a moment the entire bottom fell out. Just what is in that stuff. It was 12yrs old but I guess it decomposed into something strong. Any ideas?

also seem to indicate it is based on organic solvents. What did it smell like? Yor words "plastic cup" seem to suggest the cup just dissolved, as if you had poured acetone or mineral spirits into it.

I know lacquer thinner eats through plastic. Same result. If you try cleaning with a toothbrush its not long before it looks like you just killed a centipede with a stick. A great cleaner, wire brush, cloths. WIll eat the drain, so run water. Takes off dried paint. Evaporates. Supposed to work for poly-like finishes. I use it all the time. Especially prior to painting, or for brass hardware covered in paint.

plastics don't do well with petroleum distillates, regardless of the age of the chemical.
