I make my own: A pint of MEK from the local hardware store, and as many 
styrofoam cups 
as I can crush and allow to dissolve in the MEK, then tightly capped. 

A pint jar with 1/2 pint or so of MEK in it will normally take at least 20 ea 8 
oz sized cups. 

When it takes more than a minute to dissolve the bits, then stop.

If air is kept away from it, it will last a long time.

Applied evenly with a small paint brush to coils of any kind it dries clear and 

Works wonders.
