Acetone vs Interlux 202

So, if acetone manages to shift some sort of hull sealant, is Interlux 202 also likely to shift it?
Acetone is a bit too volatile, it evaporates before you get a chance to wipe off what it's lifted so you have to go over it again and again and again without seemingly ever actually removing the goop (it mostly just gets spread around) , 202 has stabilisers to give you a chance to use a 2 rag clean so although it's a ton more expensive, I might actually use a ton less.

P.S. If I ever see anyone applying any sort of magic "never wax this again, miracle cure for a dull boat" type stuff to a hull, I am going to smack them upside the head and throw them in the sea. I have spent two 12 hour days trying to get this crap off my topsides, finally resorted to acetone this evening and it's started to shift it.

Re: Acetone vs Interlux 202

Well, the answer was a resounding no. Interlux 202 could not shift it in the slightest so I had to burn through a ton of acetone instead. Nice stuff to work with. Not.

Re: Acetone vs Interlux 202

The auto paint supplies used to sell a solvent called Tumbler.. We used that for wipe/dewax prior to our top sides paint job...

These are all nasty products, hope you've got a respirator..

Re: Acetone vs Interlux 202

I figure with the amount I drink and the crap I eat, a few chemicals aren't going to do much worse

Re: Acetone vs Interlux 202

acetone is nasty stuff and stays in your system for a long time. I'd avoid prolonged exposure if posible.

Re: Acetone vs Interlux 202

Acetone is not the best product or safest. I used to use MEK for prepping metal before it was outlawed (almost everywhere). I have no idea what it would do to plastics. REALLY nasty stuff. I will never use again.
Possibly....

Funny; other forums recommend the interlux.

When i was in the auto refinishing business i never used acetone. I wouldn't think it would be the best choice.

Re: Acetone vs Interlux 202

In 2005, the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency removed (MEK) from the list of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). After technical review and consideration of public comments, EPA concluded that potential exposures to butanone emitted from industrial processes may not reasonably be anticipated to cause human health or environmental problems. Emissions of butanone will continue to be regulated as a volatile organic compound because of its contribution to the formation of tropospheric (ground-level) ozone.

Re: Acetone vs Interlux 202

The bottom line is that in this particular case acetone worked, 202 didn't. I'm sure 202 is great for stripping off wax and some other stuff, just not this stuff.
