100% Pure Acetone
Acetone is a colourless, flammable and highly volatile liquid with a pungent odour. It is an effective organic solvent for many plastics, synthetic fibers, difficult resins, waxes and adhesives. Acetone is a smallest Ketone with the formula of CH3COCH3.
Did you know the human body produces and disposes Acetone through normal metabolic processes? It is normally present in blood and urine and diabetic patients produce Acetone in larger amounts.
