Solvent nomenclature

From: Thomas H. Rebok <trebok>
Date: Sunday, July 16, 2006
Can anybody please explain to me the difference between Mineral
Turpentine, Stoddard Solvent, White Spirit and Testbenzin with
regard to the manufacturing of Keton-N picture varnish? I have made
extensive tests and found out that the initial solubility and the
final drying time is affected by the choice of solvent but what
about longevity and reversibility?
