  1. Ah, MEK. Had a soldier decide he was going to clean the stains off a concrete floor in our maintenance bay with MEK once.

    Didn’t have to work that day until the HAZMAT folks cleared the hangar for us.

  2. Flamable? MEK will cause you bodily harm if you look at it wrong. I was getting warnings about it from my Sergeants and the Army had pulled it from the inventory a year before I joined.

    • And I worked in a place where the policy was, a Ph.D. chemist was _NOT_ qualified to read a can of spray paint that said “Does not contain Methyl Ethyl Ketone” to determine if it had MEK or not. That required a Safety person.

  3. You all are missing the point here (at least I think so). What is Brand name of methyl ethyl ketone?
