200 Proof, 190 Proof and 140 Proof Denatured Ethyl Alcohol
The term denatured alcohol refers to alcohol products adulterated with toxic and/or bad tasting additives (e.g., methanol, benzene, pyridine, castor oil, gasoline, isopropyl alcohol, and acetone), making it unsuitable for human consumption.
The terms denatured alcohol and denatured ethanol are interchangeable.
Denatured alcohol is chemically different from isopropyl alcohol. Isopropyl and denatured alcohols are both commonly used as disinfectants and are dangerous for human consumption. The term rubbing alcohol can describe either type of alcohol when they’re used as medical disinfectants.
The most common additive used is methanol (5–10%), giving rise to the term ‘methylated spirits.’ Other common additives include isopropyl alcohol, acetone, methyl ethyl ketone, and methyl isobutyl ketone.
