Petroleum solution (artificial varnish)

It is a petroleum resin "Sibplast" resulting thermal polymerization fraction C9 120–210 °C pyrolysis products of hydrocarbons at a temperature of 240–250 °C and pressures up to 1.0 MPa, and then dissolved in atmospheric distilled off (solvent thermopolymer). Perhaps preparing a solution using a petroleum as solvent TS-1 (in accordance with GOST 10227-86 rev. 1-3) and mixtures of TS-1 and atmospheric distillation (solvent thermopolymer) in certain ratios. It is used for the manufacture of oil-based paints for interior and exterior use, dilution of color pastes, impregnation of wooden surfaces and plaster, manufacturing of building compositions.
