75 ml Jar N135171.75
A very volatile thinner which does not leave a thick film. It has less odor than Rectified Turpentine spirits.
Mineral spirits have an advantage over vegetable-based spirits that it keeps better on contact with air. It is a thinner solvent than vegetable-based spirits and evaporates more slowly than Rectified Turpentine spirits. It is used to spread out
oil-based colors or certain varnishes. Because of its high penetrative power, petroleum spirit gets deep into the paint. An excess accentuates the matte finish.
It is also used to clean brushes covered in fresh color and it does not dry out and does not stick like Rectified Turpentine spirits.
