This is a PCB from a Washing Machine. I am interested in getting some parts out of it. So what is this Coating and what will be the best way to remove it?

It can't be simply pulled like Glue from glue gun, it is quite sticky after 14-15 years and I don't have anything to heat it around except soldering iron.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Reduce the size. I use Irfanview for manipulating images like those from my camera. It's free. \$\endgroup\$ – Leon Heller Feb 18 '18 at 10:47

    \$\begingroup\$ I can't imagine any washing machine component is worth it, to remove that gunk. I suggest you have a look at what-ever-you-need costs if you buy it. Unless you have a seen a solid piece of gold under there? \$\endgroup\$ – Oldfart Feb 18 '18 at 12:07

    \$\begingroup\$ Second hand and possibly worn out components subject to damage on extraction and illegibility of part type/number/value = complete waste of time. \$\endgroup\$ – Andy aka Feb 18 '18 at 12:19
