Removing Silicone Wax
By Spencer Chase

Silicone removal is a problem when painting cars that have been waxed
with silicone containing waxes.  There are solvents made to remove the
silicone residue.  Maybe they would work on pouch boards.

Dow 111 high vacuum grease will not migrate with vacuum.  It is intended
for use with high vacuum in critical systems where contamination would
be disastrous.  The only area that might be affected would be the
pouch boards and they could probably be cleaned up with the right

I have something called clean prep that definitely removes silicone
from metal.  If anyone is interested, I will do an experiment on wood.

There are also additives for paint that allow it to stick to surfaces
where silicone might be present.  These agents might also be useful?
