Compared to other kinds of oil, mineral seal oil has a low viscosity rating. It is a colorless substance, and it is mostly odorless. It is stable in the air, but it is highly toxic to humans if swallowed. Mineral seal oil also evaporates and produces harmful vapors that are also flammable. This substance is used in a wide range of applications, including paint, solvents, and germicides. Because of its low viscosity and high oxidation stability, mineral seal oil can be mixed with other materials to make them smoother and easier to manage. Other uses include inks, pesticides, and various automotive chemicals. Although it’s not highly flammable, this oil can burn relatively easily and produce heat and light. It is highly toxic and should not come into contact with your skin, eyes, or throat. Gloves, goggles, and a breathing mask should be worn when handling this chemical, and it should be stored in a cool, dry area away from other combustible materials.
