RE: surfboards

In general, the first step is to minimize the use of the current solvent for
cleaning, and after that look at substitute solvents.  For fiberglass
operations, minimize evaporation of the solvent while in use, and consider
multiple-stage rinsing.  Would it be feasible for this shop to reclaim spent
acetone through on-site or off-site distillation?  If so, that might be an
advantage that substitutes cannot offer.
