Acetone | Nail Polish Remover 99.9% 500ml - 20 Litres



Acetone, also known as Nail Polish Remover, is a colourless, volatile, flammable liquid and has a wide range of uses.  


    • Solvent: Acetone is an extremely good solvent that is used for many plastics and other synthetic fibres. It is used for thinning polyester resin, cleaning tools with and dissolving part epoxies and superglue before they harden. In this respect, it is fantastic for model makers, sculptures and anything involving small plastic kits.
    • Degreaser: It is useful in the preparation of metal prior to painting and for high-reliability soldering applications to remove rosin flux after soldering is complete; this helps to prevent the rusty bolt effect. 
    • Domestic and Niche Uses: Acetone is the primary competitor in cleaning agents such as nail polish remover. This means it is used in bulk by nail salons. Acetone is a key component of superglue remover and easily removes residues from glass and porcelain. Make-up artists make extensive use of acetone to remove skin adhesive from the netting of wigs and moustaches by immersing the item in an acetone bath, then removing the softened glue residue with a stiff brush. Acetone's ability to loosen hardened glues makes it ideal for arts and crafts.
