    ACETONE: What Brand Name in Thailand ?

    I am looking for ACETONE, under what brand name are they selling in Thailand. I asked the clerk at HomeMart, HomePro, and HomeWorks and all I got were blank looks

    I have a Paint thiner already, Beger M50, and Paint Remover, but those are not Acetone

    It can be under any brand name as it is the chemical Acetone and not a name used by a company.

    huffing acetone is dangerous ain't it,, and what would it be used for here except freebasing coke? thats what Richard Prior was doing when he set his self on fire.

    I can't stand the smell of the shit, girls at our house use it for fingernail polish remover.

    Polish remover has some other additives
    Just depends what it is being used for if you need the 'pure' stuff

    I need ACETONE to clean something, couldn't find any brand name that has ACETONE in their formula, hence my question

    maybe too dangerous a product to sell as retail, SISTA seems to be have something close enough, will try HomeMart again

    I had a case of acetone put on the bus and sent up to me


    Sounds like you don't need much of it.
    Polish remover would probably be OK for cleaning

    Acetone is a recommended cleaning agent for uncured expanding foam. When the foam has set acetone is of no use at all.

    BF, Only guessing at what you may need to clean up.

    correct, I need that among other things, to clean up the nozzle, but since I am planning to use the whole can, will probably not need it for that project

    ACETONE is also good to remove paint and all those oil based paint, unless I am mistaken

    When I was at his house he seemed like a stable guy so if he is freebasing it is for someone else use, but his wife seems OK too.

    OK, I did not think that you had a commercial freebasing ops going on.
    And I have heard that it does increase fuel efficiency, and if you have used that much then you must be satisfied that it does.
    But doesn't it evaporate out of the fuel rapidly?

    the Thai word for acetone is acetone, it doesn't sound right if you have a ridiculous french accent. Write it down, อาซิโตน, and hand over the piece of paper with a loud ao ma, wa!

    commonly used for cleaning PVC just not here. But still it is available at plumbing stores Siam brand I think it was that I last purchased some time ago, more available in Bangkok than outlying provinces.. But find a store that specializes more in Plumbing..

    Acetone is a solvent used in big volume in the food packaging printing industry, highly explosive in contact to fire or sparks !

    if you know one in that business ask him for a drop of it..

    As other option you could use Trychlorethylene, i think that one can be found in near any Pharmacy, powerfull cleaner as well...
