Acetone



Our Acetone is 99.6% pure.


Most common applications include:



  • False nail removal

  • Hair extension removal

  • Cleaning of misprinted inks and solvents in the electronics industry

  • Paint thinners

  • Removal of 'Superglue'


Acetone is often the primary (or often the only) component in nail polish remover. Ethyl acetate, another organic solvent, is sometimes used as well. Acetone is also used as a superglue remover. It can be used for thinning and cleaning fibreglass resins and epoxies. It is a strong solvent for most plastics and synthetic fibres.


It is ideal for thinning fibreglass resin, cleaning fibreglass tools and dissolving two-part epoxies and superglue before hardening. A heavy-duty degreaser, it is useful in the preparation of metal prior to painting; it also thins polyester resins, vinyl and adhesives. It easily removes residues from glass and porcelain. In biological research contexts, buffers that contain acetone (such as citrate-buffered formalin) use the acetone to lyse cells for further experimentation.


Additionally, acetone is extremely effective when used as a cleaning agent when dealing with permanent markers.
