A highly volatile hydrocarbon solvent that performs well in situations requiring a solvent that evaporates quickly with no residue.


  • Fast drying.
  • Can be used as a low residue contact cleaner.
  • A low flash point solvent that evaporates quickly.
  • A weak solvent that is unlikely to affect the surface of most materials.
  • Versatility – Recosol R55 can be included in any formulation where speed of evaporation is required and will combine well with other organic compounds.
