Default plastic burnt to down pipe solution

ok - riding out to Dover stupidly put baggy over trouser wets on - and as to be expected managed to burnt some of the material onto my rear speed* down pipe!!!.....f****&^%" grrrr

chatted it over with gav the man....decided to use betterware 'oven mate for half hour ...a gel for cleaning ovens.. instructions popo'd any ali - copper - brass, anodised, and painted surfaces...didn't say no chrome - takes 3 mins to 3 hours depending on burnt product depth - so glooped it on and left it - lost my nerve after half an hour wiped it off as instructed [biodegradable stuff] and off most of it came ..clean no really wiping at all - chrome perfect!!

so thought you'd like to know - over and out

Yes, thanks for the tip.

I was sitting out in my garage yesterday, coincidentally, with a heat gun and mineral spirits working hard to remove some burnt-on rubber or plastic from one of my heat shields. Got 95% of it off, but it took a lot more work than what you just described.

I always use blue-job. Great stuff for chrome. So far everything comes off. It is quite expensive considering the amount you get in the container, I thought I was ripped off on ebay, but apparently that's all you get (not even 1/5 of the container).
If you do it by hand - it takes a while, but with polisher -should take minutes...

It seems like it is only sold in the UK. Any Idea what it might be called over here?

If you're asking about Blue Job - I always thought it is from US. Check on ebay...
