Acetone is a pure solvent with an variety of applications. It dries quickly, and is zero residue. It’s highly flammable, so appropriate precautions are required before use.
Acetone has many uses specific to electronics. It can be used as a cleaner or stripper. It aggressively dissolves heavy greases and stubborn residues, quickly stripping coatings, and eventually destroying most encapsulating and potting compounds. It may be used as a thinner for fast dry coatings, or as a multi-purpose solvent, and in 3D printing it is useful for smoothing ABS.
