Is California the only backwards state with politics so messed up that Naphtha and Xylene are considered banned substances and we have to use "industrial maintainence coating thinner"?

Just wondering if anyone out there from other states have run into this.

It sucks that those thinners are illegal here in Cali...

Had to buy actual Plasti Dip thinner before DYC had it

That's one of the many reasons I love living in South Florida.
It's the same in France where I come from, no chemicals allowed for civilians, and even with a license you still need to use controlled substance.
No solvent based automotive paint either, it's all water base process...

Yup it is the same here in Canada ontario. You need to have a "painter's license just to buy toluene or naphtha. I understand why though, they are very dangerous.

My only concern or complaint is that a gallon of the industrial maintenance coating thinner cost me $20 where you can see online that a gallon of Naphtha or Xylene cost $10-$12. Seems like a small amount but it is starting to add up over time. It just sucks that Cali has to restrict so many things. I may have to make the drive to Vegas and bring a bunch back across the border. :)

I don't know where you are finding Xylene or Naphtha for only $10-12 a gallon. But at Home Depot at least here Xylene costs $20 a gallon and Naphtha is $7 or $8 a quart.

There are others out there but you get the idea- Quite a bit cheaper http://www.lowes.com/pd_206531-34228-CR.VM.M.41_0__?productId=3024053

Oh wow Lowes is only like a block away from the Home Depot, might have to make the switch.

Never mind they don't carry it around here apparently.

You can order the Plastidip thinner online and have it delivered to California. I had 5 Gal of toluene shipped here. Great thinner and I can top up my gas tank with it if I want (117 octane). Hehe
