    Abstract

    The restrictions being placed on chlorinated fluorocarbons by the U.S. Government are driving the need to find a suitable alternative for use as a visualization fluid.

    Visualization fluid is the term given to fluids that will make paper translucent with little or no damage to paper, ink, correction fluid, or photographs.

    Light petroleum distillates have been the most successful visualization fluids tested to date; however, they are not as effective as chlorinated fluorocarbons, especially with permanent marker inks, carbon, paper, and NCR paper.
