    Hi just after some advice on how to remove plastic fillet trims from my upvc windows frames. Is there a solvent that can be used. Also would I need to remove trims on external fillets where they have cracked on the outside where they join the cills. 20200120_200100.jpg 20200213_202659.jpg 20200120_200100.jpg 20200213_202659.jpg 20200120_200100.jpg 20200213_202659.jpg

    Sharp Stanley knife is the only way unfortunately, no solvent will dissolve the superglue and silicone. Cut off and remove the silicone on the outer cill and reseal when weathers dry.

    Hi thanks for getting back to me I had a company come in and they filled the hole up with silicone then rendered over the top of it . When I remove internal fillets will the frames need sanding down to make them flush before adding new ones
