Acetone: All You Should Know
Acetone is a solvent, meaning that it’s a liquid used to dissolve other substances. This colorless liquid is actually completely natural. The body’s metabolic system creates acetone, which can break down other chemicals.
It’s frequently used in the production of plastics. Many people associate acetone with cleaning products and nail polish remover, but these products usually only contain a small amount of acetone because it’s such a strong solvent. It can also be used in the textile industry, such as in the production of wool products. Acetone is even used to make lacquer paints for the automotive and furniture industries.
While it’s highly flammable, the Environmental Protection Agency deems it overall safe for human use and contact.
So where do companies that use acetone find it? This widely useful and affordable chemical can be purchased in bulk through laboratory and chemical supply companies.
