ACETONE is the lowest molecular weight member of the ketone family of solvents, is a low boiling, fast evaporating, colourless, stable liquid. Because acetone possesses excellent solvent power for most natural and synthetic resins including acrylics, vinyl polymers, nitrocellulose, cellulose acetate, and other collutive derivatives. It is popular and effective low boiling solvent for surface coating applications. Since most waxes, oils, fats, greases and dye materials are soluble in acetone; it is ideally suited for extraction and other end uses.
