Some of the goops sold under the "Amazing Marine Goop" brand will say they shouldn't be used on polyethylene. The brand I use made by eclectic products inc. also contains some of the same solvents such as toluene, but has no warning about polyethylene. How different are the two brands in reality? I dunno.

Some folks also use 3M 5200 Marine Adhesive for puck installs and swear by it, others use a product called Lexel and swear by it, then the epoxy crowd uses epoxy and swears by it. I have used 3M 5200 on my first kayak and never had a problem with it, then I switched to marine goop to try it and I have never had a problem with it either. A few friends though have had to remount their pucks because they got bubbles in it the first time around. I have never used epoxy or Lexel. However, I may try the Lexel on my next install just to try it. I have heard it's really good for having very few bubbles in it which is a big plus.

Below is photos of 3M 5200 Adhesive, Lexel and the tube of marine goop I use.

I'm not sure of the best way to remove epoxy. Maybe you can just pop it loose?
