I don't have a list but it's easy to tell.

Most water based dressing are milky in color.
Most solvent dressings are clear.

Solvent based will have one or both of the following written on the bottles: "Contains Petroleum Distillates" and "Flamable".

Hope that helps.

I have a short list on the water based dressings..... Poorboys Bold and Bright. If you don't like it PM me and I'll buy it from you.

I don't have as much luck with the solvent based dressings (compared to BnB), but for this type, I like Top of the Lines Grape Tire Dressing.

Here is a list of some water based dressings,

303
Vinylx
Mothers Preserves Protectant
Mothers FX Tire Shine
Mothers Reflections Tire Dressing
Megs #40
Armor All (yes Armor All is water based)
Turtle Wax Platinum Protectant

This all I can remember at the moment. These can all be purchased local.

On tires my favorite is the FX Tire Shine. For interiors it's 303 and Preserves Protectant.

All solvents are petroleum based.

Frank,

Solvents are simply substances that can dissolve other substances and they’re not always petroleum based . For instance, water itself is a solvent. Water is known as the universal solvent because it dissolves more substances than any other liquid, but petroleum based solvents are very common in many products.

Thanks for the clarification. I meant to say that all solvents used in tire dressings are petroleum based. I guess you could come up with a non petroleum based solvent but then what would you have? A tire cleaning product? If it's for tire shine and it says Petroleum Distillates then it has petroleum solvents and you don't want that on rubber. It will take a long time but it can degrade the sidewalls. If you change your tires every 30k miles you might never notice. But for those who keep them longer it might spell trouble. It all going to be a moot point if the EPA outlaws petroleum solvents in dressings. Does anyonw know if they have gone and done that in California? That's usually a forerunner of what will happen in the rest of the country.

Poorboy's BNB and Zaino's Z16 are water based


A man has got to recognize his limitations, and then learn how to adapt within those confines. Then go out and conquer.
