Acetone is ideal to degrease and clean surfaces such as knife tangs and handle material prior to gluing.
Acetone is a fast evaporating solvent ideal for general cleaning.
Acetone is a powerful solvent widely used in the composites industry for degreasing and cleaning. Acetone will dissolve and remove epoxy, polyester and vinylester resin from surfaces. It is also used as a high strength de-greaser for surface preparation prior to secondary bonding. Acetone is a very effective solvent but has a relatively high evaporation rate, making it necessary to keep the container closed at all times when not in use for safety and economy.
