does I remove road paint?
I have not used it on road paint but I use it to clean up after epoxy and it works on that. I use an air brush so I do not want to be aerosoling toxic ingredients
Yes I get a tarry build up in the fall just before I take my boat out on the side against the dock and it works for that. I'm on an inland river in the western part of PA
We got road paint on our car and that's why I bought this product. Took it off with ease even though the paint had been on there for more than a month. It did not harm the finish either.
I have not used it for road pain but it does work on Epoque see which is the paint I used
Sorry don't have an answer... Felt like I should reply . I do have product but ,more work time and no project time . Have not used yet. Ssobba
can i use in nail paint remover.. it will works same as that of acetone...?
Are you speaking of fingernails? I've never used fingernail polish, so I wouldn't know. However it works as well as regular acetone, so I suppose it would work fine, and certainly be safer.
Boi-Solve says it is reusable. If you clean rollers and other tools with epoxy resin on them in this product will the epoxy settle out to the bottom so you can pour the Bio-Solve off the top to reuse?
I have not yet cleaned a roller used for resin. So far I have used Bio-Solve to clean tools after painting with enamel bilge paint and epoxy paints. The paints did settle out and I did decanter the clean bio-solve off and reused. Also, I have run it thru my gun after spraying gelcoat. The gun was cleaned and the spray thru did separate so I assume resin would settle out and allow reuse of the solvent. I have found bio-solve to be very similar to acetone although ever so slightly less aggressive (but not impacting usability). After use the solvent is discolored and therefore contains contaminants. So far I have used thru a few cleaning cycles and still going well. I am curious how many reuse cycles I can go through. So far I am quite pleased with results. An added bonus is the odor is not as strong as acetone. I have not yet hit the point where Bio-Solve did not perform as needed.Hope that helps.
I've used Acetone successfully as a thinner to spray gel coat.Can Bio-Solv be used as a thinner, mixed with gel coat to thin it for spraying?
I used Bio-Solv to thin gelcoat when spraying with a Preval for a touchup. It seemed the basically same as standard acetone.
I am really glad Jamestown carries and ships this
I am always glad to avoid acetone and this product seems safer and easier to use. I am also glad that Jamestown ships this product when others can't. My go to store!

Best cleaner for resin yet
Used to clean resin from hands and surfaces
I am a restorer , it is great for cleaning the airbrush
On exterior, it worked well but is slower to lift than Acetone. Environmentally safer. No face mask, no special clothing, just gloves. Use a plastic scraper to lift off crud, then wipe clean with Mineral Spirits.
makes cleaning a breeze
cleans up pine sap and yellow staining from the boats easily. dosn't evaperate to quickly giving you a longer work time plus its naturally derived.
WORKS GREAT TO REMOVE CONTACT CEMENT
This is a great product to use to remove excess contact cement from laminate placement on counter tops, or any project where contact cement is used. It does have an odor that lingers, but is much more pleasant than acetone, and you don't have to worry about the health effects that acetone has on your customer, or yourself.I wouldn't go as far to say it out performs acetone, but it sure does the job as well as acetone. Would especially recommend this product to any professional. Am ordering two more half gallons of this product today.
Worked great for removing boat lettering
Used it to remove boat lettering adhesive. Spray on BioSolv. Wait 5-10 min, while keeping surface wet. Scrape off with plastic putty knife.

Works great with Epoxy.
This works great as a replacement for Acetone or Alcohol when working with Epoxy.It doesn't evaporate as quickly, so you can use less and the rag stays wet longer. It does not leave a residue.It has a "fruity" smell, very unlike Acetone or Alcohol. Although not suggested, I have not noticed any health effects or irritation due to vapors in a confined space.I found this good for cleaning up if you get wet epoxy on your skin without burning or skin irritation.aka: Ethyl Hydroxy Propionate ( a proprietary Ethyl Lactate Blend )100% Biodegradable -- non-toxic: No adverse effects known or suspected
