Diggers Shellite is a flammable hydrocarbon solvent used primarily as lighter fuel. (Also known as Recosol R55.).

Typical Uses:
- Metal Cleaning
- Fuel for Shellite stoves, torches and lanterns
- Lighter Fuel
It is a colourless liquid with a paraffinic, sweet odour. It is unlikely to affect the surface of most materials as it is weak. It performs well in situations requiring a solvent that evaporates quickly with no residue. Solvency – high solvency of greases and oils means it can be used to clean surfaces prior to painting. Available in 1L, 4L and 20L.

As a Fuel
Use undiluted as a clean burning fuel for Shellite stoves, torches and lanterns. Fill Shellite stove ONLY when flame is extinguished and burner has cooled down. Do NOT use in Kerosene or Methylated Spirits burners.

As a Cleaning Fluid
Use direct from bottle as a cleaning fluid. Brush on liberally, wipe clean and let dry.


Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye / face protection when using this product.
