Does anyone know if you can remove something that has been cemented in place with Plexus MA300? I am wondering if it can be heated and then removed, but also not sure if this might damage my boat or the plastic mount that I am trying to get off.
I figure this probably is not going to work but was wondering if anyone might have any thoughts.

MA300 is a methacrylate adhesive, it will chemically etch into most plastics (ABS, Gelcoat etc). Neither heat nor solvent will remove it. If the mount has bonded well to the boat, it will most likely have to be cut off. Be aware on a composite boat that levering the mount off will most likely remove gelcoat off the laminate.
Its got to be cut|

The thwarts in my RapidFire are Plexused in. Last year I broke one..and it was not possible to remove it without cutting..

Plexus is not an epoxy.
