Isopropyl Alcohol (Isopropanol) 99.9% 1L
99.9% Isopropyl Alcohol.
99.9% Isopropyl Alcohol, also called Isopropanol or IPA, is a multi-purpose solvent for many applications in make-up artistry. It serves as a degreaser for tools and working areas, in skin preparation prior to the application of prosthetics as well as a multitude of different techniques in the workshop. For special effects applications, 99.9% is required.
Isopropyl Alcohol is ideal for disinfecting surfaces at home or work, cleaning glass and mirrors, cleaning mobile phone and computer screens. It should be stored in a sealed container as it evaporates quickly.
For disinfecting applications, Isopropyl Alcohol should be diluted to 70% concentration. This lower concentration is less dehydrating on the skin, and evaporates less quickly, but is more effective at killing viruses and bacteria than 100% Isopropyl Alcohol. To dilute to a 70% concentration, take 1L of 99.9% Isopropyl Alcohol, and add 400mL of water. Store in a sealed container.
Caution: Isopropyl Alcohol is highly flammable and has a strong smell. Use in a well ventilated environment. Do not use near open flames.
