paint thinner, paint thinner vs mineral spirits
A paint thinner is a solvent used to thin oil-based paints or clean up after their use Commercially, solvents labeled "Paint Thinner" are usually mineral spirits having a flash point at about 40 °C 104 °F, the same as some popular brands of charcoal starter

Common solvents used as paint thinners include:

  • Mineral spirits US / White spirit UK
  • Acetone
  • Turpentine
  • Naphtha
  • Toluene
  • Methyl ethyl ketone MEK
  • Dimethylformamide DMF
  • 2-Butoxyethanol, or any of the other glycol ethers

Less common solvents used as paint thinner include:1

  • Ethylbenzene
  • Xylene
  • n-butyl acetate
  • Butan-1-ol

Exposure to vapors created by paint containing thinner or its clean up may be hazardous The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists has established threshold limit values TLVs for most of these compounds TLV is defined as the maximum concentration in air which can be breathed by a normal person ie, excluding children, pregnant women, etc in the course of 40 hours work in US work conditions per week, day after day through their work life without long-term ill effects In underdeveloped countries workers commonly experience much higher exposure to these chemicals with consequent damage to their health
