Industry Standard for Dissolving Resin
Acetone is a powerful solvent, used in the composite industry as the standard for cleaning and degreasing. It will dissolve and remove epoxy, polyester, and vinyl ester resin from tools, brushes, and surfaces—and will effectively remove grease and wax for surface preparation prior to bonding or repair.
While acetone is an effective solvent, we strongly recommend that it not be used to thin resin or gel coat, as this can lead to added pinholes or premature yellowing.
Acetone is highly flammable and will evaporate rapidly. It should be handled much like gasoline. When not in use, keep containers tightly sealed at all times for safety and economy.
Reduce spills, evaporation, and contamination. Easy-to-squeeze dispensing—Easy to identify. Our 16 oz. propylene dispenser makes it safer to keep acetone closer at hand for quick clean-up. Use with our #9 Acetone.
Gallon (#9-B) and 5-gallon (#9-C) quantities are considered hazardous (flammable) and will be subject to a hazard charge if shipped by standard ground.
Quart and gallon sizes of #9 will be subject to a hazard charge if shipped by air. The 5-gallon quantity of #9 cannot be shipped by air.
Please see our Hazardous Shipping Chart for more information about hazard fees. We will consolidate items whenever possible to minimize these fees.
Acentone is available in a variety of sizes that include:
One quart (#9-A)
One gallon (#9-B)
A five-gallon pail (#9-C)
