Kuwait international factory was established in 2013 to fill in the demand for petrochemicals that are often needed by industries. It aims to become one of the premier white spirit manufacturer in UAE and prides itself in manufacturing quality chemicals that are made to international standards. Our products are not only made to meet standards but are developed to meet both environmental and regulatory standards.
Our key strengths are:
One of our major product is Low aromatic white spirit. Low aromatic white spirit or LAWS is also known as Stoddard solvent, mineral turpentine or turpentine substitute. It is a chemical solvent and is also used as a paint solvent. Laws is basically a mixture of paraffins, cycloparaffins and other aromatic compounds.
Its versatility and dissolving capabilities enable low aromatic white spirit to be used as an industrial solvent and it is a major raw material for the paint, aerosols and ink industry. Other industries such as the automotive, furniture, clothing and carpet manufacturing industries also use the chemical for various purposes. This solvent is also preferred for erasing paints, making solutions of gums, resins and cleaning auto parts.
LAWS is a mixture of hydrocarbons with small amounts of aromatic compounds like Ethyl Benzene, 1, 2, 4-Trimethylbenzene, Naphthalene and Xylene present in it.
This material is a volatile and highly flammable compound. Thus, it is important that necessary precautions be taken when handling this chemical. A high density of vapors can lead to the formation of highly flammable mixtures.
It may be harmful if you swallow it. Inhaling these vapors may cause vomiting and can induce bronchopneumonia, or chemical pneumonitis.
To protect oneself from physical injury, it is best to avoid contact with eyes, skin or clothing. This chemical should only be used in well-ventilated areas and inhalation of chemical vapor should be avoided.
The chemical should be stored at ambient temperatures and metal container should be well grounded and thoroughly sealed to avoid any contact with fire and sparks which may cause an ignition.
It is essential to avoid using natural rubber, Polystyrene or EPDM as a material for storage.
This colorless chemical is a petroleum solvent which is a liquid at room temperature and immiscible in water.
LAWS is stable at ambient conditions. Any direct contact with oxidizing agents should be avoided. On decomposition, the chemical may release carbon monoxide which is harmful to human health.
The product is not suitable for recovery and any further industrial refinement. It should be disposed with an appropriate waste disposal facility and care should be taken to ensure compliance with local and international statutory or regulatory requirements.
