Acetone is not a HAP. It was delisted from SARA313.

It is delisted as a VOC, but still remains a HAP to my knowledge, so it not
a free lunch. It also is extreamly fast and highly flammable. People usig
it should realize that they may experience insurance issues. Methyl acetate
has also been delisted, but remains a HAP. It may be a better alternative
than acetone.
