It can be used to clean surfaces before painting or for prepping parts before installation. It’s even useful in the refurbishing industry for stripping away contaminates when preparing a part for reuse. Sometimes referred to as butanone, MEK is popular in all types of industries from military outfits to aerospace giants and beyond. With superior cleaning power and the ability to dissolve away even the toughest residues and disinfectants, IPS® SatWipes® with MEK is sure to help you clean up your act.
MEK is an organic compound. It’s colorless and is a liquid at room temperatures, but it has a sharp, sweet odor that’s easily identified. Some say that it smells like butterscotch or acetone.
