Paint thinner is one of the most common industrial chemicals, and it’s also one of the most versatile. In addition to thinning paint products for use and for cleanup, paint thinner is excellent for other industrial cleaning applications — removing stains, grease and more from certain surfaces. As such, you have several options for specific chemicals that can be used for your paint thinning and cleaning purposes.

What Makes a Quality Paint Thinner
Paint thinners typically have similar characteristics, even though the chemical composition can be different from product to product. What exactly qualifies as a paint thinner?
A thinner is a volatile solvent that is used to dilute or extend oil-based paints or cleanup after use. Common solvents used as paint thinner chemicals include mineral spirits, mineral and true turpentine, acetone, naphtha, toluene, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), dimethylformamide (DMF), glycol ethers and xylene. Extreme care is required when handling thinners, as exposure to their vapors during use or in cleanup may be hazardous.
At SolvChem® Custom Packaging Division, we offer multiple options for chemicals that can double as paint thinners. Our more popular chemical blends include turpentine, acetone and mineral spirits. Whatever your application, our team can help you make the best selection so that you have a quality paint thinner to get the job done.
