    If it's like Gorilla glue, you can try acetone, Goof-off or nail polish remover. All are harsh to skin though. You could also try washing your hands with baking soda 3 or 4 times. It takes about 7 days for the stuff to wear off on its' own. Good luck!

      It's just like they print on the side of the can of expanding foam:
      "Cured product must be removed from skin mechanically"
      Do you have a bench grinder...?

        If PL 40 is anything like PL Premium, you simply have to wait a week for it to wear off (or fall off) your skin with normal hand usage! The stuff is TUFF!

                From the FAQ on their website:

                Q. How do I remove dried adhesive or sealant?
                A. It is best to clean up excessive adhesive or sealant while it is in the uncured state however, thin films of cured adhesive can be removed using solvent or mineral spirits. Heavier films must be physically removed with a putty knife.

                      Re: PL 40 adhesive

                      It's a Polyurethane just like PL Premium.

                      That's right, POLYURETHANE, that means it doesn't come off, and there isn't any solvent on the market that you can break it down with, that wont destroy your flesh at the same time.

                      What did you expect? Would you consider wearing gloves if it said Polyurethane Epoxy?

                          Get a box of nitrile gloves and get used to using them for all the messy stuff.

                          Went through a box of 50 pairs fast one fall when I was doing a lot of caulking(20 tubes worth!).

                          Saves a lot of grief in the long run.

                            You don't even need nitrile for something like caulking. But anything that says polyurethane on it requires gloves.

                            Common sense, not so common.

                              Everytime I hear of stuff like this it always reminds me of the "How Do I Get Herculiner Off of My Hootus?" guy, absolutely a classic internet forum thread from a while back. If you got some time to kill and want some side splitting reading material, I suggest you take a look. http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/...threadid=18595

                              This poor guy was made famous in a matter of days, maybe even hours in the world of automotive and other forums thanks to his post. Its crazy that this was TEN years ago, seems like yesterday.
