Marlyn,

DF-2000 is produced in the USA by Exxon.  For technical data, see the
following Web site :

http://www.exxon.mobil.com/exxon_chemical/mp/df2000/index.html

DF-2000 is a hydrotreated synthetic aliphatic hydrocarbon.  It has a flash
point > 140 F.  High vapor concentrations (greater than 1000 ppm) are
irritating to the eyes and the respiratory tract and can cause central
nervous system effects.  An 8-hour occupational exposure limit of 300 ppm
(1455 mg/m3) is recommended by the supplier.
