Acetone is a colourless, volatile, flammable liquid with a pungent sweetish odour. It is an inexpensive solvent that is useful for cleaning up liquid Polyester and Vinyl Ester Resins. It cannot dissolve them once they have cured. Acetone is not effective on Epoxy Resins. Acetone is useful for cleaning up waxes, adhesives, removing nail polish, cleaning up and removing some paints and lacquers. Prolonged or repeated exposure of Acetone to the skin removes natural oils, resulting in dryness or cracking. It must not be used to clean hands. Acetone readily forms a vapour at low temperatures and in small or poorly ventilated rooms this vapour can build up and can cause irritation to the eyes, nose and throat.
