What is Acetone & Why Are Alternatives Necessary?

Used in everything from nail polish and paint remover to plastic manufacturing, oil spill clean ups, and more, acetone can become dangerous when we become exposed to large quantities. Acetone also has an extremely high flammability and is considered a hazardous waste material that needs to be handled and disposed of properly. These added hassles, plus the several negative health effects of long-term exposure make the need for an acetone substitute a priority. ELSOL AR is that perfect alternative to protect your employees, you bottom line, and the wider world.
