Kerosene is a low volatility, clear, colourless hydrocarbon liquid.
This product is dyed blue-green (for ease of identification). Kerosene fuels are characterised by low volatility and moderately high flash points which make them difficult to ignite and burn cleanly without preheating.
Kerosene is sometimes used as a degreasing solvent for cleaning metal surfaces, however its low volatility means that it is slow to evaporate and tends to leave an “oily” film on the work piece.
Kerosene is widely used as a cutback solvent for bitumen in road construction, to control the consistency of the bitumen during the sealing operation.
Good solvency for a range of vegetable and mineral oil based products.
