Solvents

Acetone 

Used for thinning polyester resin, cleaning tools used with it, dissolving two-part epoxies and glues before they harden and as one of the volatile components of some paints and varnishes. As a heavy-duty degreaser, it is useful in the preparation of metal prior to painting and in soldering applications to remove rosin flux after soldering.

Ethanol 190 (Denatured)

Ethanol 190 (Denatured), also referred to as Methylated Spirits, is an alcohol that has been made unsuitable for drinking by adding toxic substances such as methanol. Ethanol 190 is commonly used as a solvent in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, food, and chemical industries. It has become increasingly popular as an additive in many fuels. It is also an effective and relatively green cleaning agent that will replace more toxic commercial cleaners for many uses.

Isopropyl Alcohol 99%

IPA is an effective cleaning agent that evaporates quickly and leaves nearly zero oil traces. These properties make IPA an excellent choice for many industrial cleaning processes. Common uses include removing flux residues after soldering and as general cleaner to remove oil, grease, and other handling soils from metal, glass and electronic components. IPA is used in chemical manufacturing and as an ingredient in some fuel drying additives.

Methanol 

Methanol is a traditional denaturant for ethanol, thus giving the term “methylated spirit.” Methanol is also used as a laboratory solvent, an additive to fuels and as an antifreeze in pipelines and windshield washer fluid.

Methyl Ethyl Ketone (M.E.K.)

Commonly used industrial solvent with a quick evaporation rate. It is used in lacquers, varnishes, paint removers and as a cleaning agent. Often used to surface clean and prep metal parts before priming or painting. Part# CF3307 • CAS No. 78-93-3 • Available in 55 gallon drums
