Acetone is the standard of the industry for cleaning tools and brushes while working in polyester, vinyl ester, and epoxy resins. It is also the recommended solvent for removing greases and waxes from surfaces which are to be bonded, repaired or primed. Acetone will not remove resin from tools, brushes, etc. after the resin has set. It is not recommended for thinning resins or gel coats as this can lead to added pinholes and premature yellowing. Although acetone may be used as a thinners for resins we would recommend the use of styrene for this purpose. Acetone is a highly flammable liquid and must be handle with the same care given to other flammable liquids
