No it isn't. It's available through Canadian Tire and Home Depot.

Wash bottles are great, still evaporates a little though.  

We stopped using mek years ago and switched to less toxic alcohol, acetone for heavier jobs and commercial gun wash for bulk cleaning.   Of course we have a contaminated varsol tank too.  

Since mek is used in illicit drug production, it also became more scarce and regulated in bigger quantities.

Whatever you use, always wear proper PPE to reduce the risk.  Chronic illnesses caused by toxic chemicals are no joke.

I prefer to use IPA as much as possible, but sometimes MEK is the only thing that does the trick. I always figured Gun Wash was just as harsh due to the smell and ability to eat paint, but maybe it's still not as harsh as MEK?
