(130)

Recommended for use with the complete Superflite System VI. Seven year shelf life if unopened. One year shelf life if opened without catalyst. Fabric primer filler, use SF6500. Metal primer, use SF10. ...
Acetone

Acetone

(2)
A flammable liquid ketone used as a solvent and a constituent in many aircraft finishes. Like MEK, acetone is quite universally used as a cleaner. It is used to remove lacquer finishes and for clean-up after painting. It will soften acrylics or lacquers that have set-up in spray guns or hoses. But, it has little effect on polyurethane which has cured in the gun or lines. When buying acetone, be sure to get only virgin acetone, as recovered acetone is often so acidic that it can damage anything on which it is used. Gallons require hazardous material fees. Quarts and gallons must be sent UPS ground only.
MEK (Methyl-Ethyl-Ketone)

MEK (Methyl-Ethyl-Ketone)

(2)
An important, low cost solvent similar to acetone. It is used as a cleaning agent to prepare a surface for painting and as a stripper for certain finishes. It removes wax and grease from a surface prior to spraying a finish, and it finds use in the engine shop around the ignition and carburetion systems for cleaning and decarbonizing parts. Gallons require hazardous material fees. Quarts and gallons must be sent UPS ground only.
