White spirit​

white spirit is a petroleum extract and it is considered a mild Solvent. It is known as mineral turpentine, turpentine substitute, petroleum spirits, solvent naphtha (petroleum), Varsol & Solvent 402. White spirit is mixture of paraffin and aromatic hydrocarbons with a distillation range of 200-142 °C. These types of Solvents are liquid, transparent, colored water and a mild odor, chemically stable and they do not cause corrosion.
White Spirit is used as a paint thinner. In industry, mineral spirits are used for cleaning and degreasing machine tools and parts, and in conjunction with cutting oil as a thread cutting and reaming lubricant. Mineral spirits are an inexpensive petroleum-based replacement for the vegetable-based turpentine. It is commonly used as paint thinner for oil-based paint and cleaning brushes, and as an organic solvent in other applications. Mineral spirits are often used to clean and unclog screens after printing with oil-based textile and plastisol inks. They are also used to thin inks used in making mono-prints. Also White Spirit is packed in bulk, drum normally (170 Kg & 200 Kg drum each) and small flexi Tanks (With maximum 15 tons capacity) too.
