Solvent naphtha, also known as solvent benzene, heavy benzene or aromatic naphtha, is the collective term for mixtures of light aromatic hydrocarbons that are obtained from coal tar, petroleum or oil shale. Under standard conditions, Solvent Naphtha is a colorless liquid with a pungent odor.
However, solvent naphtha is now also being produced from petroleum distillation products by catalytic reforming.
Solvent naphtha can be used in many different areas. As an inexpensive, organic solvent, it is used as such, e.g. in natural and synthetic resins (including alkyd resins and epoxy resin esters) and in printing inks.
It is also used in the textile and paper industries, as a thinner for paints, varnishes and lacquers, and in the manufacture of herbicides and insecticides.
