Liquid that is obtained from distillation of raw petroleum and that includes mainly aliphatic hydrocarbons. While the main usage is in internal combustion engines, it is also used as a coating solvent. Besides the general purpose gasoline, some special gasoline types, distilled at different temperature intervals, are also used as coating solvents. Depending on the properties of the raw petroleum, gasoline can chemically contain more than 120 hydrocarbon types. Many of those hydrocarbons have saturated structures with 4 to 12 carbons on their backbone.
