For curing compound overspray that gets on metal, is this overspray paintable? Can it just be wiped down and painted over? Are any compounds paintable? Is there one that is used more commonly where overspray is a sensitive issue?
Xylene can remove overspray of curing compounds (1100 series, 1200-White series, 1300-Clear series, 1600-White series, 2200-White series), but please note that depending on the surface where the curing compound is over sprayed, the xylene might remove other coatings as well.
If a curing compound is over sprayed on a car or painted surface, bug and tar remover has been successfully used to remove the cure. Read the instructions on the bug and tar remover to make sure that it is compatible with the surface being cleaned or will not damage a coating (if the surface is coated). Always test on a small inconspicuous area to make sure that it meets their expectations and prior damage the surface/ coating, prior to full scale application.
The curing compounds are temporary coatings and will dissipate over time, so a surface coated with these cures cannot be painted over. If the cure is painted over, and the curing compound is not properly removed prior to the painting, the cure will dissipate over time and will lift the paint as well.
