Subject: Removing adhesive from aluminum

Removing adhesive from aluminum

From: Hutchings Larry <history>
Date: Thursday, May 23, 1996
We have a small collection of aluminum store tokens which were glued
to burlap using rubber cement about twelve years ago.  The tokens
were removed from the burlap several years ago and gently cleaned
(Orvus WA), but a hard yellow-brown crust of residue remains.  Our
resources are very limited--can the residue be safely removed
in-house?
