Adhesive Removers

DSR5/Re-mov Silicone & Adhesive Remover

DSR5/Re-mov is a revolutionary silicone and adhesive remover that works by separating the adhesive from the surface it's adhered to. Products that do not cure to a brittle hardness but remain somewhat flexible, i.e., most silicones and caulks, contact adhesives, labels, decals, tape residue, gum, sap, tar and wax can be removed with DSR5/Re-mov. Hardened products such as Super Glue (cyanoacrylate), two part epoxies, urethane floor coatings and varnishes cannot be removed with DSR5/Re-mov. More information can be found at

DSR5 and Re-mov are the same product under different labelling. DSR5 is available on Amazon or it can be purchased directly as Re-mov at

This product is by far the best silicone and adhesive remover I've had the pleasure of using. I've been using it for the last 5 years. As an artist and sometime renovator I've been using silicone and a variety of industrial and construction adhesives and caulking for a long time. DSR5 takes off nearly every kind of glue or caulking I've come across. And it does so cleanly and quickly with very little mess.

The best thing is that it even gets the residue! Because if you've ever tried to scrape the edge of the tub of that old caulking you'll know that the last little bit just won't come off. This does the trick.

It's also easy on the hands and has very little toxic vapours. In fact it's easy on any surface. It won't harm the finest finishes, it's neutral on paint, varnish, shellac and on most if not all surfaces.

As far as I've been able to tell it works on all silicones, caulking and adhesives except super glue, two-part epoxies and carpenter's glue.

Definitely worth the price. A little goes a long way!
