Shellac-Buster; Carburetor Varnish and Shellac Cleaner

The Shellac-Buster is a great chemical for the removal of Varnish, Shellac, Rust, Paint, Oil, Grease, and Dirt off of carburetors and engines.

Shellac-Buster is a concentrated semi-aqueous, micro-emulsion solution. It can be used as a pre-wash chemical to remove oil, grease, corrosion and rust, and residue from metal parts. Also, Shellac-Buster is an excellent choice for removing heavy oil and water-based paints, ink, and adhesives.

Small engine, vintage cars and motor cycle engine mechanics, including Brian Sims the owner of www.manxmotors.com, who have been seeing a major influx in business over the past few years, ever since the state started mandating ethanol in the gasoline sold in Michigan.
Ethanol, often made from corn sugars, is a colorless alcohol fuel that makes up 10 percent of the product dispensed at gasoline pumps.
Ethanol makes a mess of small motors, such as the lawn mowers, snow blowers, trimmers, chain saws and leaf blowers for shop services.
”It's driving us crazy,” said Brian. “Now it's to the point that seven to eight machines out of 10 that we service have fuel issues.”
Ethanol messes with smaller engines like snow blowers, lawn mowers, motorcycles and vintage cars because of its tendency to attract moisture over time, local mechanics said. The result is that carburetors get clogged with a crusty film that must be cleaned out if gas is left in the machine too long - and, in some cases, the carburetor must be replaced entirely.
”The fuel goes bad quickly,” Brian said. “It turns into varnish and shellac in the carburetor and the Shellac-Buster does a great job in cleaning it.”
If left over a long period, gasoline, oil and ethanol will start separating from one another in the gas tank and the whole carburetor body of a smaller motor will start corroding, mechanics said. With oil sinking to the bottom, the engine may not get proper lubrication, he said.

The Sharpertek Shellac-Buster has proven itself in hundreds of applications, by removing powder coatings, e-coatings, epoxy systems, oil & water based paints, adhesives, inks and petroleum based products. Turpentine products will not harm alloys such as steel, aluminum, copper, magnesium, brass, and most plastic substrates and rubber.

The Shellac-Buster chemical never dies!  You can use the Shellac-Buster chemical forever by either adding more to it when it evaporates or by alternating by adding water.  When it gets dirty you can clean it by straining it in a cheese cloth.
