Naphtha Versus Vm & P Naphtha


Recommended Posts

I have a can of Sunnyside Naphtha. I also see that here are Naphthas that are labeled, VM & P Naphtha.

Besides the labeling, what are the differences in their uses.

I want to thin some varnish, and have the Naphtha without the 'VM & P.'

Aliphatic Napthalene is what it is unless any additives are specifically in there. These would be on the label of contents anyway. The "VM & P" bit indicates "varnish manufacturing & paint" and in my opinion just adds confusion. Kind of like terming water as "water for splashing" or "water for freezing".

You're good to go.
