 Paraffinic-Aromatic Solvents (AW 402)       White Spirits are solvents that are slightly heavier than SBP's and have boiling ranges between 105°C and 205°C. These solvents are paraffinic-aromatic, transparent liquid with moderate odor, chemically stable and non-corrosive.  They are clear water-white liquids, chemically stable and non-corrosive and possess a mild odour.White spirits and mineral spirits blends are used as solvents or diluents in thinners for paints and varnishes, paint driers, colour printing of fabrics, metal cleaning and degreasing, preparation of furniture, shoe and floor polishes, dry cleaning formulations and in the rubber industry.
