    disolve resin?

    I was wondering if theres anyway to disolve fiberglass resin. I want to clean off my paint brushes and my mixing can so that I dont have to use a new brush for every layer. I have tried paint thinner, and acetone. Niether worked, im guessing theres prolly something though

    so the acetone will suspend the resin from hardening?

    Acitone will only work if the resin is wet and it will only work for so long. Acitone evaporates quickly. If you are doing several lay ups in one day you will be able to get away with using the same brush but at the end of the day the brush will be toast.

    If you don't want to leave the brushes in acetone, rince them with acetone, then with whitespirit, and wash them (soap and water).
