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 #160-A Acetone Dispenser is a 16 oz. propylene container that makes it safer to keep acetone close and convenient.
