Mixed Xylene

Mixed Xylene is a colourless, flammable aromatic hydrocarbon liquid with a sweet odour. It is a mixture of different isomers of xylene such as meta-xylene, para-xylene, ortho-xylene and ethylbenzene.

Mixed Xylene is used as a solvent in many industries, such as paints and coatings, pesticides, printing, rubber & leather, etc. It can be used in place of toluene where slower drying process is desired. Mixed Xylene is a widely used solvent and is considered to be fit to be used as a solvent in paints, pesticides and other products due to its better adhesive properties.
