Toluene based paint thinner composition


Lately we havn't been able to source a certain type of toluene based fast drying paint thinner here at our company and I would like to explore the viability of opening an account with a major supplier and sourcing the ingredients to mix it myself. (You see with this account open I could also acquire any chemical I want at better prices! nudge nudge wink wink)

In the industry the thinner is known as 'Solumix' but I cannot seem to acquire it's composition. Maybe with a stroke of luck someone may know exactly what I'm talking about, or would there be a way to take a sample and determine it's composition by chemistry?

Well, your company should be able to ask for a MSDS to the distributor/manufacturor, they are compelled to indicate the major ingriendts to companies IIRC. Indeed, it would surely come out cheaper, depending on the volume used by your company, to aquire technical solvnets at very low price and do the mix yourself, even adapt it to your specific needs. I guess there might be other things than just solvent sin there too.
