ACETONE is a high-volatility, flammable, colorless, clear liquid to smooth certain 3D printing materials, with specially designed devices like the Zortrax APOLLER. ACETONE works with ABS, ASA and HIPS filaments to erase the streak effect of 3D printing. In addition to giving a finished look, a smoothing post-treatment with this type of solvent allows to improve the mechanical characteristics of printed part; to improve the tightness of printed parts; avoid friction on sliding or moving parts
ACETONE should only be used by professionals with a suitable device such as the Zortrax APOLLER or a suitable ventilation system. Because of its rapid evaporation, it dries quickly. Therefore, the container should not be open longer than necessary.
for smoothing ABS, ASA and HIPS filament
Wear gloves to handle ACETONE . Follow the guide of the smoothing machine manufacturer.
