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
