Mineral Turpentine is one of the most widely used hydrocarbon solvents since it combines good solvency with controlled evaporation.
Appearance: Clear, Pale Yellow Liquid
Uses: Mineral Turpentine for thinning paints, waxes, and polishes, metal cleaning, and clean up brushes and equipment after painting.
* A mid-range evaporation rate.
* Good solvency for oils, greases, waxes, silicone, etc.
* Relatively low cost.
* No residue on drying.
* Versatility – Mineral Turpentine can be included in any formulation where controlled evaporation is required. It is miscible with all other organic solvents.
* Solvency – Mineral Turpentine has good solvency for greases, oils, and general dirt as well as alkyd resins in enamel paints.
