Aromatic solvents are composed of aromatic hydrocarbons such as xylene, naphthalene, and toluene. The aromatic solvents are used to dissolve solid materials to form homogeneous solutions. Aromatic solvents are produced by fractional distillation of crude oil in oil refineries. Due to their high levels of solvency, the demand for aromatic solvents is on the global rise.

The paints & coating industry is the principal end user of aromatic solvents. Toluene is utilized as a base material for the production of toluene diisocyanate, cement for polystyrene kits, and fullerene indicator. Therefore, it is used extensively in leather tanning & printing processes. In building & construction industry, paints are used for insulating material coatings as well as making the buildings visually appealing. Paints help in isolating the building surfaces from the outside air. In the chemical industry, aromatic solvents are used as chemical intermediaries for the production of chemicals such as phthalic anhydride, cumene, maleic anhydride, cumene, and naphthalene. It is used as an industrial cleaning agent and for degreasing applications such as electroplating & galvanizing.
