Usage

Acetone is the starting material for numerous syntheses in the chemical industry. It is mainly used for the production of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), colloquially known as acrylic glass or Plexiglas. Acetone is used in the paint and adhesives industry as a universal solvent and extracting agent for cellulose, vinyl resins, chlorinated rubber, celluloid, ethylene, but also for essential oils, chlorophyll or resins. It is used as a paint stripper for oil and varnish paints or as an intermediate for the production of other organic chemicals such as bromoacetone (tear gas), chloroform or diacetone alcohol. Other areas of use are: Nail varnish remover, dissolving plastic glue, removing impurities caused by construction foam, for example, cleaning PU foam guns, washing and cleaning agents, degreasing printed circuit boards, etc.
