Acetone is a residue-free, solvent thinner and cleaner. Due to quick evaporation, it’s perfect for projects needing fast drying times. Acetone is very effective as a thinner, cleaning solvent, or remover for fiberglass resins, polyester and epoxy resins, adhesives or contact cement, ink, latex paint, and uncured lacquers. It is also excellent at degreasing metal work.
ACS Reagent Grade acetone meets or exceeds the specifications set by the American Chemical Society. ACS acetone can be used for ACS applications or for general procedures that require stringent quality specifications.
Semi-grade acetone is used in semiconductor and microelectronics manufacturing.
