Ethyl alcohol is the kind present in beer, wine, spirits and liqueurs.

Isopropyl alcohol available in the drug store or supermarket is typically 40% water.

Pure isopropyl alcohol (99%) is only available as a lab or industrial solvent, so most amateurs would not be able to acquire it. Pure ethyl alcohol is a controlled substance and expensive.

What did you want it for??
Ya, Ya I know, I see the carnage, but it's still race-able. Isn't it?

I've seen 99% isopropyl for sale @ walmart in Ontario....

Viper, are you wanting to use it to clean down your car? Try a mix of Simple Green and Water. I have some extra strength stuff that I mixed 50/50 and it works great.

I assume your trying to make the nitro cleaner from RC Action Mag. I made this stuff with Ethyl alcohol from Home Hardware.

Definition: Ethyl alcohol to which a denaturant, such as methyl alcohol, pyridine, etc., has been added. The denaturant chosen is one designed to discourage the use of the alcohol in beverages, but not to interfere with its use as a chemical intermediate or solvent.

same stuff, just different names.

They cleaner works not too bad, just use a brush and get a high pressure spray bottle.

good luck
