Re: Tek Old Timer Question


As I recall strip-x was basically methylene chloride anyway. Ace hardware
has an adhesive remover that is pretty similar. Nasty stuff - use in a WELL
ventilated area. Flammable and carcinogenic. It'll eat through rubber

Strip-X was nasty stuff, but it worked!
I seem to recall that it did not have a long shelf life, it would lose
effectiveness over time.


Hi Gary,

Strip-X sounds like what I was describing. Now that you mentioned it I do
recall the foul smell. Your description of its physical properties are
identical to what I remember. It is no longer listed in the GC Electronics
catalog but I am hoping I can find a distributor that may still have some
a shelf collecting dust.

Thanks to everyone else who offered their answers to my question.
