Sold in enchanted vials that hold one application each, universal
solvent is a magical chemical mixture that can dissolve almost
every known substance in the galaxy. (Universal solvent canâ€™t
damage creatures.) As a standard action, you can splash
universal solvent on an object. If a creature holds or wears the
item, you must hit with a melee attack against that creatureâ€™s
EAC. One application of solvent can cover five objects of light
bulk, one object of 1 bulk, or a 5-foot area of a surface. When
the solventâ€™s vial is emptied, it leaves a clean, empty vial with
Universal solvent dissolves adhesives instantaneously, including the strands released by stickybomb grenades, provided the adhesive is of an item level equal to or lower than the solvent. The solvent also softens objects it coats, suppressing hardness according to the solventâ€™s type. As a full action, a creature can wipe off an application of universal solvent, ending the solventâ€™s effect on the cleaned object (but not the object used to clean it).
If an object is exposed to universal solvent for 1 minute, the object takes an amount of damage equal to twice the amount by which the solventâ€™s hardness suppression exceeded the objectâ€™s actual hardness. The solvent then becomes inert and turns to dust, and the object returns to its normal hardness.
Universal solvent comes in the following types.
