We understand there is a high demand for these products due to the climate of the world at this stage, we are trying our best to get products out to those who most need it.

We apologise that we have not been able to reply to your emails as quickly as we usually do, as you can understand we are extremely under the pump and are trying to be

proactive as possible.


At this stage, we will not have stock of the Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) until late April. We are producing some Antibacterial Hand Sanitiser, however, most are committed to orders. If we have any extras, we will place them on the website where you will be able to purchase them. All availability of each product will be outlined on the website, no need to call the office.


As a hidden secret tip, we are telling our valued customers to sign up for the ‘notify me’ button on each product page by inserting their first name, last name and email address.

At this stage, we are setting a maximum purchasing quantity limit of two when selecting the same product, only on current in-demand products.

We believe this is only fair to keep everyone safe and protected.

We have the right to refuse orders with excessive quantity, as for bulk ordering there will be no refunds provided, as seen in your local supermarket’s policy.

Also referred to as Isopropanol, IPA and Rubbing Alcohol

Isopropyl alcohol is a clear, colourlesss solvent and is miscible in water and hydrocarbon solvents. The flashpoint of isopropyl alcohol is 12ºC with a fast evaporation rate. Isopropyl Alcohol is a multi-purpose surface cleaner suitable for a wide variety of uses. There are three main types of Isopropyl Alcohol: Isopropyl Alcohol 70%, Isopropyl Alcohol 99%, and Isopropyl Alcohol 100%.

The difference between Isopropyl Alcohol and Rubbing Alcohol is that Isopropyl Alcohol is defined as pure, either 99% or 100%, whereas Rubbing Alcohol refers to the 70% variant. Rubbing alcohol has a higher moisture content making it more suitable to disinfect wounds on the skin. The Isopropyl isn’t as harsh on the skin and it gives the alcohol time to kill bacteria as the higher moisture content slows down evaporation.

Isopropyl Alcohol Uses

Isopropyl Alcohol 99% or 100% is perfect for cleaning electronics, mirrors, stainless steel, 3D printers, and much more. The difference between 99% and 100% Isopropyl Alcohol is only 1% of moisture. Customers usually lean towards the 100% isopropyl alcohol and only use the 99% when specified in a formula. Isopropyl Alcohol 99% and 100% evaporates quickly making it perfect for cleaning.

Isopropyl Alcohol 100% can also be used for a variety of other applications such as cleaning, disinfecting, removes sticky residue, glass cleaning, hand sanitiser and much more. Isopropyl Alcohol is also miscible in water, meaning you can dilute it down to suit your needs.

Where to Buy Isopropyl Alcohol

Isopropyl Alcohol can be purchased online from Sydney Solvents or you can pick up isopropyl alcohol from our warehouse in Penrith.

Difference between IsocolTM and Isopropyl Alcohol

IsocolTM can be purchased from places like supermarkets and is diluted down Isopropyl Alcohol to about 60-70% grade. However, Sydney Solvents Isopropyl Alcohol is 100% making it stronger and more cost-effective as you can dilute it down to suit your needs.
