Isoparaffins are virtually odourless making them particularly suitable for use in odour-free paints, printing inks, dry cleaning, wallpaper manufacture, photocopying, household sprays, fragrant polishes and hand cleaners. Their inertness and low solvency make isoparaffins the ideal carrier for catalysts in polymerisation processes.
