SHL 25 Litre (25000ml) High Quality 94% Methylated Spirits (Denatured Alcohol)
25000-METH
In Stock

Mineralised Methylated Spirits is a denatured spirit prepared for industrial use. Suitable for use as a solvent for knotting solutions, spirit based varnishes, some spirit based paints and French polish. Methylated Spirits can also be used as a cleaner for paintwork, glassware and for wiping resinous matter from knots prior to knotting. It is also commonly used as a fuel for heating/cooking. Commonly known as Meths, Denatured Spirit, or Ethanol. It is is mixed with a small quantity of Methanol to make it unfit for consumption, and dyed purple.

Uses:

As a fuel for marine and ultra-light camping (backpacking) stoves. It is inexpensive, may be extinguished with water, and can be transported without special containers. However, safety concerns do arise from the near-colourless flame with which alcohol burns. A jellied and dyed form is used in the Sterno brand fuel "Canned Heat", which is meant to be ignited and used in its container.
To pre-heat the vaporizing tubes on a wickless kerosene stove such as a Primus stove
As a sanding aid, as the alcohol helps to more easily remove excess dust because it does not open the wood grain the way that water does.
As a mealybug exterminator.
As a cleaning aid in removing ink stains from upholstery or clothes.
As a cleaner in daily housekeeping
As a solvent in shellac and shellac-based products.
As an excipient in a number of pharmaceutical products for topical use.
As a less expensive alternative to pure ethanol in preserving biological specimens.
As a less toxic alternative to methanol in the production of biodiesel fuel. Biodiesel produced using ethanol is properly called fatty acid ethyl ester, whereas biodiesel from methanol is properly referred to as fatty acid methyl ester.
For maintenance of wicks in kerosene heaters and lamps to remove water contaminants and restore the capillary action of the wick, as a wick cleaner and a kerosene additive, by adding approx. 1 teaspoon denatured alcohol per gallon of kerosene.
As a fuel for older toy steam engines which used a wick-type or vaporizing burner.
For window washing
As a fuel for fire jugglers and fire spinners. This can be used in conjunction with boric acid to create a greenish fire effect.
It can be used in cooking to test pectin levels when making jam, jelly and marmalade.
