White Spirit and SBP
Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC)

European Commission - Eurostat
White Spirit and SBP are defined as refined distillate intermediates with a distillation in the naphtha/kerosene range. They are sub-divided as:

i. Industrial Spirit (SBP): Light oils distilling between 30o and 200oC. There are 7 or 8 grades of industrial spirit, depending on the position of the cut in the distillation range. The grades are defined according to the temperature difference between the 5% volume and 90% volume distillation points (which is not more than 60oC).

ii. White Spirit: Industrial spirit with a flash point above 30oC. The distillation range of white spirit is 135o to 200oC.
