Acetone is a powerful solvent that’s used throughout the GRP industry for cleaning and degreasing. Acetone effectively dissolves and removes uncured epoxy, polyester, and vinyl ester resin from a variety of surfaces as tools. Not only that but it also effectively removes grease and wax for surface preparation prior to repair. Acetone is also widely used and popular as a high-strength nail varnish remover, often used by nail professionals. Acetone is also used as one of the volatile components of many paints and varnishes used for both personal and commercial purposes.
