You might try looking on the label for info, 3M website or an 800 number for customer questions.

Might try something like Goof Off or lighter fluid. Ronsonol Lighter type fluid. I use lighter fluid all the time to remove adhesive residue.

In a pinch you could also us charcoal barbecue lighter fluid as well.

Not sure this will dissolve your adhesive, but should soften it enough to work it off the material??

Try some on a scrap piece of material before you go at the finished product to make sure there are no issues.

After using the petroleum based product, you can use rubbing alcohol or Windex usually as a final clean up.

Good luck.
