RECOMMENDED USE: Add up to 10% thinner to Ablative Paints when brushing or rolling the paint on warm or windy days. Add 15% thinner when spraying. For priming bare wood, add 20-25% thinner to insure good penetration into the wood.
NOTE:Pettit manufactures a wide array of thinners to compliment our various coating products. The Thinners are matched to the product, method of application and atmospheric conditions present at the time of application. When application temperatures are high (80°F and above) slow thinners are recommended to improve brushability and flow of the product. Generally, faster evaporating thinners are utilized for spray work to maximize atomization while mini mizing the chances for runs and sags. Faster evaporting thinners are also useful for brush and roller work at lower temperatures (60°F and below) since there is less chance of these thinners becoming trapped under the drying paint film causing blistering at a later date.
Never overthin a varnish, enamel, undercoat, primer or other paint product. Doing so could lead to reduced gloss upon drying or a reduction in the performance of a product. Always follow the thinning instructions given on the label or technical data sheet for the specific product being applied.
