You don't really have to remove the old adhesive if you are going to recover it with new Eternabond.

However, I have used acetone to assist in removal. It takes a lot of time and elbow grease. Unfortunately, there is no magic bullet.

If you have a fiberglass roof, get a sharp wood chisel & be very careful.

That stuff wasn't designed to come off!

I think I would call the makers of Eternabond.

That's why they didn't name it TEMPRABOND!

I used a Harbor Freight:
Multifunction Oscillating Power Tool - 1.6 Amp, 120 Volt
with a scraper blade and acetone.

Thanks Az bound, I thought about acetone, now I will buy some. And Mel, great idea, I can always use another tool.

For anyone who can't read the .pdf...here is the text: Bulletin: Removing Eternabond
How do you remove the best sealing tape in the world? Well, it is not easy,but if you follow these instructions, it is not impossible.First, you have to determine if you really need to remove it at all. For example, if you are going to replace a skylight or vent that has been sealed with Eternabond, and after replacing the skylight or vent are going to reseal it with Eternabond, you can simply:
1. Cut through the old Eternabond tape along the edge of the old skylight or vent.
2.Remove the screws holding it down.
3.When you lift the old skylight or vent off, half of the Eternabond will be on the flange of the skylight or vent, and half will still be on the roof.
4.When you install the new skylight or vent, simply screw it down and...
5.Put a new piece of Eternabond over the first in the same place.
OR...Second, if you have determined the Eternabond must be removed, followthese instructions:
1.Using a heat gun or a hair drier, heat up 2 4 of the tape on one end.
2.Grab a corner of the tape and pull on it. The sealant should stretch like pizza cheese.
3.As you are pulling on the tape, cut the stretched Eternabond with a razor blade, keeping it wet with water.
4.At this point some of the residual gray Eternabond MicroSealant will still be on the roof. Work it off using a strong solvent like lacquer thinner, acetone, or gasoline, and some elbow grease, or...
5.Leave the residue in place. It will not hurt anything, and if you put new Eternabond over the old, the new MicroSealant will absorb the old MicroSealant.

After removing everything I could with a dull putty- knife kept wet with turpentine, I have used a turpentine-dampened rag to remove all residue with success. Turpentine is a non-petroleum product, and is safe to use on most any surface sealed with Eternabond.
