    The two compartment epoxy pump that I have needs to be cleaned out. The plastic containers are available all over What chemical will remove the epoxy and resign?

    As long as the epoxy is not catalyzed and cured, the components can be removed with Acetone, MEK, or alcohol, although with the latter it's a bit more work. The benefit to the alcohol though is that it's not as caustic. MEK I'd recommend only as the last resort.
