Glue Removal From a Connector
« on: July 08, 2016, 04:53:12 pm »
Guys I am trying to remove a connector which is glued to a PCB the connector is coming form a small LCD display unit. What is the best way to remove the glue before de-soldering the connector from the board.

Thank you very much

Cyanocrylate, epoxy or silicone?

Looks like ABS to me, try soaking it in acetone.

If it's silicone, go buy some hexamethyldisiloxane ;)

Looks suspicoiusly like hot melt glue to me. Try to just solder through it.

Hot melt glue. A drop of alcohol (IPA) will do the magic.

The little-known secret of service: hot-melt just falls off in the presence of isopropyl. Quite a surprise.
