White mineral oil Specification

With the CAS registry number 8042-47-5, it is also named as White mineral oil. A mineral oil is any of various colorless, odorless, light mixtures of alkanes in the C15 to C40 range from a non-vegetable (mineral) source, particularly a distillate of petroleum. Besides, it is heavy white oil, which should be stored at -20 °C. Most often, mineral oil is a liquid by-product of the distillation of petroleum to produce gasoline and other petroleum-based products from crude oil.

Preparation of White mineral oil: this chemical is produced by liquid hydrocarbons in petroleum. Frist of all, you can wash it by the use of fuming sulfuric acid to remove asphalt, aromatics, unsaturated hydrocarbons, polycyclic hydrocarbons and other impurities. And then you would obtain this chemical by decoloration with carclazyte.

Uses of White mineral oil, white: this chemical can be used to ease the inflammation on infant diaper rash. It can also be used as a suspending agent in sulphur-based ointments. In addition, it is used to lubricate the birth canal and ease the baby's egress in obstetrics. It is used as an adjuvant to stimulate a cell-mediated immune response to the vaccinating agent in livestock vaccines. And it can be used to produce baby lotions, cold creams, ointments and cosmetics. Furthermore, it is used as a non-conductive coolant or thermal fluid in electric components in a variety of industrial/mechanical capacities. It is also useful as a protective coating or bath for water-sensitive materials. Additionally, it is used as a coating on metal tools and weapons, knives in particular, as a way to inhibit oxidation. The product is used as a leather conditioner and a wood preservative. It can also be used in the food industry. It is used to clean heavier oil stains by diluting and liquefying the other oils, rendering the oils more accessible to detergents. What's more, it is used by professional firespinners and firebreathers as a fuel.
