Typical Fields of Application of Acetone

Acetone removes organic impurities from substrates and is well suited for greasy/oily contaminations. Its high evaporation rate, however, requires a subsequent cleaning step in e. g. isopropyl alcohol in order to avoid striations on the substrate. Acetone is not well-suited as lift-off medium due to the high fire danger when heated and the trend of particles to be lifted to resorb onto the substrate.
