Subject: Alternative to xylene

Alternative to xylene

From: Raymond A. Spiteri <raymond.a.spiteri<-at->

We are seeking a less hazardous alternative to xylene to be used in
solvent mixtures and for dissolving acrylic resins like Paraloid B72
for eventual use in conservation treatments. Can anyone suggest, or
has used, a viable alternative. Has anyone used 'Clarify' as an
alternative to xylene, and if so, is it a viable alternative.
