I have tried cleaning those K type blocks off,
I've tried soap and water
sikkens m600 paint prep
prepsol (paint prep)
None of these is cleaning the mold release off. Any ideas on what might
be useful on this plastic?
There's an outdoor furniture cleaner we use that contains a lot of
bleach. It think it's called "Red Max." It works wonders. Look for a
specific outdoor cleaner. The bleach kills the mold and removed the
stains, while the cleaning agents lift it from the surface to be
"Playing is not something I do at night, it's my function in life"
I have found that many 'uncleanable' things come out pretty well after a
long cycle in the dishwasher. The method even works fine with snowmobile
engines once they are disassembled. The combination of uber-hot water and
highly alkaline detergent can deal with some pretty nasty stuff. At worst
you have wasted a couple of hours and $.25 of soap and water.
But on another tack, are you sure that it really is mold release agent you
are dealing with? Some plastics simply have a sort of slimy-feeling surface
finish of their own, particularly when they are cast extremely smooth. This
is just the sort of plastic that a manufacturer might choose in an
application where having glue not stick is important.
It has finally dawned on me that you might be dealing with new clamps.
What brand are they actually?
I bought a set of Woodline clamps and the wood staining goo was not to
be cleaned off and that was basically from the mouth of the owner of the
company. He was fighting with the manufacturer in China to remedy the
problem several years ago.
