On more recent TN panels (like the Asus PG27VQ), they are no longer using water soluble glue. I've never damaged a polarizer. The biggest issue I have seen is that there is always residual glue left, which can smear/make the screen sticky and harder to clean.
The Asus PG27VQ and it's coating is what led me to this forum after hours of searching online. This is the first time i've seen anyone mention this screen in the same sentence as de-matting.
Can you please enlighten me, is there any way "safe" way to remove the coating on this display?
It really bothers me and I've just gotten it after returning 2 other screens.

Thanks beforehand

No, the glue on the PG27VQ is not water soluble. I had to send it back and get a PG278QR. Removing the extremely nasty film they put on TN panels is the only way I will use one.

Did you learn this by trying it yourself or did you read it somewhere?

There is no chemical solution that can get the film off?

I'm not ready to give up on this display yet.. !

Yes I tried it myself. Dow makes plenty of chemicals you could try, something like CH3C(O)CH2CH3

I'm a layman and my chemistry knowledge is at a mediocre level at best.

If there is a "ready to buy" solution, than that would be helpful .
