VM&P Naphtha, Pure
VM& P Naphtha is the short form of the compound Pure Varnish Maker and Painters Naphtha. It has different trade names such as the Painters Naphtha, Petroleum Ether, Refined Solvent Naphtha, and Petroleum Spirit. It is an aliphatic hydrocarbon solvent mixture distilled from petroleum. Its characteristics are similar to mineral spirits, although it is more volatile and dries faster. It has a nice sweet odor and is suitable for most solvent-based finishes, making it a popular choice for long-term applications. It operates similarly to lighter fluid and is an excellent solvent for removing sticky or label residue. Because of its low flash point, VM&P Naphtha is very flammable at room temperature. Lab Alley is selling its premium quality Pure VM& P Naphtha online at laballey.com in the United States of America (USA).
- Naphtha Structure: Light naphtha is the fraction boiling between 30 °C and 90 °C and consists of molecules with 5–6 carbon atoms. Heavy naphtha boils between 90 °C and 200 °C and consists of molecules with 6–12 carbon atoms.
- Naphtha is an excellent thinner for oil based paints, stains and varnishes.
- Naphtha CAS #: 64742-95-6

- Solvent Naphtha, or Naphtha, is a flammable liquid distillate containing principally xylenes and higher aromatic hydrocarbons and usually boiling higher than ligroin, obtained especially from coal-tar light oils or coke-over-gas light oils or from petroleum cracking, and used chiefly as a solvent and as a raw material for coumarone-indene resins.
- Uses: Naphtha is used to dilute heavy oil to help move it through pipelines, to make high-octane gas, to make lighter fluid, and even to clean metal. Naphtha is used for industrial purposes as fuel and as a solvent.
- Naphthalene vs Naphtha: Naphthalene is a different chemical substance than Naphtha. Naphthalene is an organic compound with formula C10H8. It is the simplest polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon, and is a white crystalline solid with a characteristic odor. Learn more about Naphthalene here. Learn more about Naphtha here.

- Naphtha is a flammable liquid hydrocarbon mixture.
- Solvents such as Naphtha, Ethanol and Petroleum Ether are used to extract oil from medicinal plants and botanical herbs.
- Shale naphtha is obtained by the distillation of oil produced from bituminous shale by destructive distillation.
- Petroleum naphtha is a name used primarily in the United States for petroleum distillate containing principally aliphatic hydrocarbons and boiling higher than gasoline and lower than kerosene.
- Petroleum naphtha is used as a petroleum solvent similar to mineral spirits. It can be found in various cleaning agents where its low evaporation point comes in handy and as a dilution agent for paints, varnish and asphalt. Dry-cleaning businesses also use naphtha in their operations.
- Naphtha, any of various volatile, highly flammable liquid hydrocarbon mixtures used chiefly as solvents and diluents and as raw materials for conversion to gasoline.
- Solvent naphtha (petroleum) is permitted for use as an inert ingredient in non-food pesticide products; Used in the agricultural, chemical, fuel, polymer, textile processing, and coatings (paints, lacquers, and varnishes) industries; Used in fuel additives, petroleum refining, cleaning/washing agents and disinfectants, coloring agents, lubricants additives, solvents, pesticides, and intermediates; Also used in small quantities as a diluent for wood treatment products.
- Naphtha Health Considerations: Humans can be exposed to naphtha in the workplace by inhalation, ingestion, dermal contact, and eye contact. The US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has set the permissible exposure limit for naphtha in the workplace as 100 ppm (400 mg/m3) over an 8-hour workday. The US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has set a recommended exposure limit (REL) of 100 ppm (400 mg/m3) over an 8-hour workday. At levels of 1000 ppm, which equates to 10% of the lower explosive limit, naphtha is immediately dangerous to life and health.
- Coal-tar naphtha is a volatile commercial product obtained by the distillation of coal tar.
- Naphtha Hazards, Dangers, Poisoning And Safety Information: Naphtha chemicals can be harmful to humans in various ways. If a human's skin or eye comes into contact with naphtha, the area can become irritated and begin to swell and feel painful. Flush skin and eyes immediately after contact. Ingesting the substance causes nausea, lung damage, respiratory failure and death in some cases. In the case of ingestion, do not induce vomiting and seek medical attention immediately. As naphtha produces a strong, chemical odor, long-term exposure to it can cause respiratory and mental issues. Some scientists list it as a carcinogen. A toxic chemical, naphtha should not be drained into natural ecosystems. As most naphtha compounds give off intense, chemical aromas, they are often found in mothballs. Naphtha is flammable and can cause unexpected and dangerous fires.
