Because of a design change, I removed an existing 1/2" glass partition that was set in stainless channel along a tiled wall.
My question, what have you guys used to fully remove the silicone residue?
I have scraped as much as possible; tried DAP's silicone remover, to little effect.
My glass company said razor blades, something called acrysol that they carry ($27/pt)--I looked it up; it's basically naptha; or GOOF-OFF.
Anybody had luck w/any of these?
The tile is ungauged slate with many variations in height and flakes easily.
I told customer at the beginning that there may be a parting line; tile is no longer available so replacement is out.
I use denatured alcohol to remove silicone before I refinish countertops. Works great. Given the substrate, you may need to use a firm tooth brush or another type of soft brush to get the silicone out of the grooves.
