Cleaning Solvents
Cleaning solvents are used for cleaning up tools and brushes while working with polyester and vinyl ester. They dissolve liquid resin, allowing clean up of spills, rollers, brushes and other equipment.
Cleaning solvent or Acetone is not recommended for thinning resins or gelcoats as this can lead to added pinholes, surface problems and premature yellowing.

Acetone is the standard of the industry for cleaning up tools and brushes while working with polyester and vinyl ester. It dissolves liquid resin, allowing clean up of spills, rollers, brushes and other equipment.
When polyester resins are completely cured, acetone cannot dissolve them. Acetone is not an effective solvent for epoxy resins.
It is not recommended for thinning resins or gelcoats as this can lead to added pinholes, surface problems and premature yellowing.
