Terry Bites:
You can make epoxy fall to bits just by boiling your thing for 10 min untill the whole thing gets to 100 real degrees.
For silicone use Dichloromethane (DCM), this makes the rubber crumbly.
Some people say that an overnight soak in transmission fluid kills silcone. Never tired it myself.


bigfoot22:
might also want to try nail polish remover, but it is VERY fumy. maybe also an exacto knife could be used too to cut large chunks out bit by bit.

I used a pick from a pick tool set to pull the silicone rubber potting material out of a car ignition module with little issues.
