Per PTI: VM&P Naphtha is never "pure". It is a combination of chemicals (refined petroleum solvent predominantly C7-C11 which is typically 55% paraffins, 30% monocycloparaffins, 2% dicycloparaffins & 12% alklybenzenes). The history and etymology of the word "Naphtha" makes reference to light -- but those references reflect the use of a word that describes substances used to start fires -- the specific languages are Latin, Greek and Hebrew --TMI, I know. I tell you that because Naphtha -- different from VM&P Naphtha is another term for lighter fluid -- like the stuff used for barbecues.
What your customer should be aware of is the fact that VM&P is highly flammable. It has a flash point below 73 degrees and is a class 1B chemical which means it is explosive at temperatures approaching or exceeding 100 degrees.
