Federal Specification A-A-59601E Type III Dry Cleaning & Degreasing Solvent
If there?s one thing you can count on with maintenance and repair, it is that messes are just around the corner. Make clean up jobs easier with mineral spirits (aka Stoddard solvent).
This petroleum distillate is a mild solvent commonly used as paint thinner. It can also remove stains consisting of oil, grease, and other materials. Mineral spirits even acts as a lubricant (reaming and thread cutting). As an added bonus, this item serves as a safer alternative to turpentine since it is less toxic and less flammable.
The "Type III" designation refers to the distillation process, which involves the addition of hydrogen (hydrogenation) in such a way that once the distillate forms it can be used for certain applications. For more information, including proper handling and storage please examine the MSDS that accompanies the item.
