Stoddard Solvent Substitute





Hello to all,

I am looking for a substitute for stoddard solvent (mineral spirits).  The
solvent is used to "rough" clean parts after machining processes and is used as
a temporary rust preventative.  Further cleaning processes occur later in the
manufacturing process.  Current practice is to dispose of the spent solvent as a
hazardous waste due to flash point.   Are there solvents available having higher
flash points which can serve the same purpose?  Any information will be
appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
