Best solvent for removing Somos WaterShed resin?

Date: Wed Sep 24 2003 - 13:13:37 EEST

Dear List

A customer has cast a block of filled epoxy around an SL master as part of an
R&D experiment and wants to know if this resin can be dissolved out.

Data sheet on the WaterShed 11120 resin shows Tg of 109degF and HDT of
120degF, so carefully heating may help with any physical efforts to dig it out, but
the geometry does not lend itself to this approach.

Have recommended TPM so far - anybody know of anything more suitable?

Thanks in advance for any help on this one.

Best regards
