This chemical is a colorless liquid. It is classified as a hydrocarbon. D-60 evaporates into the air, producing strong vapors that can be harmful if inhaled in large quantities. It is also highly flammable as it is made from petroleum products. These gases create a strong odor as well. As with most solvents, this substance can be found in a variety of applications. It can be used to facilitate the production of pesticides, as well as degreasers and lamp oils. Since D-60 is made from petroleum and burns quickly, it works well as a form of fuel. This solvent can also be utilized in chemical process solvents. Due to its toxicity and flammability, this substance should be handled with caution. It must be sealed tight to avoid evaporation, and it should be kept in a cool, dry area. Avoid contact with the skin and eyes, and wear a breathing mask when handling it in the open.
