    this question is kind of short and is sort of a threadwaste so sorry


    is there any type of solution that might disolve rubber? plastic? somthing that might disolve the coatings around wires? somthing that might be used to strip wires, except it would disolve it.

    Chlorosulfonic acid would work, but I doubt you would be able to buy it anywhere. It is also extremely nasty stuff.

    I use a now defunct product called strip-X, which is a phenol (and methylene chloride) based enamel wire stripper.
