If it's urethane foam, not really.

What us the frame made of and is it painted?

Re: Spray Foam Removal


Maybe someone knows how to get it off of vinyl easily. It could be there is a solvent for it that doesn't attack vinyl.

Re: Spray Foam Removal


Scrape very carefully with a new knife blade then some denatured alcohol to finish it up.

It might be worth a quick call to the manufacturer, they may have a support line or an answer for you.

Re: Spray Foam Removal


You should be able to scrape most of it off pretty easily after it sets up.

I can't remember if I have used these on vinyl, but brake clean/ carb cleaner will both remove it
