Acetone is a relatively strong solvent and is excellent for dissolving two part epoxies before they set, for cleaning fibreglass repair tools and for thinning fibreglass resins. It removes the sticky residue left on glass and porcelain by price stickers and other adhesive labels and it cleans lacquer application tools.
A highly volatile solvent, acetone evaporates very quickly so it is not suitable as a thinner for most oil based paints and coatings. To clean vinyl or fibreglass surfaces, mix with water to reduce its strength and slow down the evaporation rate.
Do-it-yourself enthusiasts use acetone when repairing fibreglass boat hulls, auto bodies and other projects where fibreglass and epoxies are used.
We advise caution in handling and storing since acetone is flammable. Recochem Acetone is very low odour quality and fumes from spills may not be easily detected. Use only in a well ventilated area.
It is ideal for automotive, marine and paint sundry departments.
