What are you wanting to know from a chemist?  I’m currently visiting my daughter who has a degree in organic chemistry.

    I've never had any luck using MEK to join Plexiglas.  I use a acrylics cement from TAP plastic.  The can says Dichloromethane contains;

Methylene chloride
Methyl Methacrylate Monomer
