Removing ink from ABS plastic




Q. WE ARE TRYING TO REMOVE PAD PRINTING INK FROM ABS PLASTIC CASES. WE HAVE TRIED ALCOHOL BUT IT CREATES STRESS CRACKS IN THE PARTS. WE NEED SOMETHING THAT WILL NOT ATTACK THE ABS. CAN ANYONE SUGGEST A SOLUTION?

GM,
Try and clean using soft cloth dipped in Engine brake oil.
All the best
