Acetone (Avantor 2435-10, C. Amber, 4 Lt Bottle)

Clear, colorless liquid that emits a strong semi-sweet odor. It is flammable and evaporates quickly in air. It can also be dissolved and mixed with water. Acetone is a naturally occurring substance that is a byproduct of metabolism in humans.

Usually, acetone is utilized as a nail polish remover for commercial purposes. It can also be found in the food industry as a flavoring agent due to its mildly sweet taste. Acetone is also a remarkable solvent and can be found in various paint thinners, varnishes, and lacquers. It is used as a degreaser and a cleaning agent for some textiles as well.

This substance has a low toxicity level, so minimal contact with it should not be dangerous. Direct contact with the eyes may produce redness and irritation, but skin contact should be mild, as well as inhalation or ingestion, unless in large quantities. Acetone is highly flammable, however, and should be kept in a cool, dry area.
