Diosol Formula Again

Greetings,

This is a re-post to.

I copied the Diosol formula posted in one of the yahoo groups several years ago by a chemist who lab analyzed and posted the formula. This is as posted verbatim.

"38% by vol toluene, 41% by vol xylene and 21% by vol Solvesso 100 (a long evaporation rate aromatic hydrocarbon solvent). Getting the toluene and xylene is not difficult, but the Solvesso 100 is only available through chemical suppliers."

I was fortunate to have a local paint manufacturer that could provide the Solvesso 100. Solvesso is also known as Naptha and  available in various grades.

All the ingredients were available at Sherwin Williams 6 months ago.

I've read the MSDS docs for toluene and xylene so many times that I'm glad I don't play with Diosol any more. Nitrile gloves and an extremely well-ventilated workspace are necessities for me...

I've been using straight Xylene with Floquil for past 25 yrs. with no problems.
