Mixed Xylene also known as Xilol, is a mixture of three isomers meta-xylene, para-xylene and ortho-xylene, and in addition a certain amount of ethylebenzene. This colorless xylene is known in the market for its non-toxicity, high flammability and sweet odor. Additionally, mixed xylene is insoluble in water and spreads out on water surface if small amount of ingredients may be dissolved. Mixed xylenes are generally used in the production of ethylbenzene, as solvents in different products such as coatings and paints, and are blended into gasoline. Moreover, mixed xylene can be used in production of polymer, cleaning agent for steel and coating.

Mixed Xylene is traded in two grades, solvent grade and isomer grade depending on the specifications and uses. Both are colorless liquids and can be mixed well with organic solvents such as benzene, ether etc. Solvent grade mixed xylene is used as raw materials for perfume, medicine, organic pigment, dye, etc., and as general solvent for agriculture pesticides and paints. On the other side, isomer grade mixed xylene is used as raw material for producing para-xylene, meta-xylene and ortho-xylene products.
