removing layer of SLC


I poured Self leveling underlayment, I believe it was Henry 555 dry mix that came in bags about a year ago now and used the Henry brand primer it recommended first.. well turned out I made a mistake and shouldn't of done it where I did. Is this stuff hard to remove? It is only 1/8" to 1/4" thick at most and one end I can completely get under since it stoped at a door jamb and have about a 1/16" lip above the rest of the concrete floor.

Is it possible to just slide an air chisel under that lip and take it up in sheets or chips without destroying the original concrete slab? some damage is fine, but I don't want huge holes in it... thanks

well was hoping for a little bit of guidance before renting the tools

to add to this, the layer was poured over perfectly smooth concrete, only problem was it was uneven... now with a change in the project it's now a problem.. it was going to have a different surface put over it, but thats now out...

just was hoping someone would of tried this before.. hoping it didn't bond with the smooth concrete under it so it would come up easily or something
