For the thinning of our rubber-printing-inks, the above mentioned Solvents should be used. The solvents we use and recommend are from EXXON.
You can buy solvents from any other mineral oil company, if
- the boiling points stay within similar limits
- the aromatic content is not too high
e.g. it is possible but inadvicable to mix toluene + benzene (Toluol + Benzol) with our inks and use them as thinner for our inks. But these aromatic solvents destroy the balloons and they are toxic for people
- you use aliphatic isoparaffines
Either as Alkane, Isoalkane, Cyclene, etc.
The trade names can differ between Isopar, Shellsol, etc.
