Re: Versol

I think the spelling in the US is Varsol.  If the same, it is
a mixture of mineral spirits/stoddard solvent.  In the past
it contained some aromatics, but I think the formulation changed
more than five years ago.  Check the MSDS.

If Versol doesn't fit the need you have you might want to try the Ecolink
site, www.ecolink.com.  They have a great site which provides not only
product information but also case studies by industry.  You might be able to
find a product which has been used by others in a similar use.

If you don't find a specific material the Ecolink folks are good to work
with and may know of a product which will work for you.
