Blakes Thinners Chart
It is important that only the recommended Thinners are used for each application,
failure to do so will result in a ruined job. Substituting other proprietary products
will also result in failure. Several products have a choice of Thinners depending
on the application method to be used.
Paint can be thinned to improve its flow characteristics and to increase its ability to be absorbed.
Care should be taken not to exceed the maximum recommended ratio of Thinners as this can
adversely effect the product.
When paint is thinned, the spreading rate will increase and the paint will be easier to work with.
On the other hand, the dry film thickness will be thinner when the solvents have evaporated and
it may be necessary to apply another coat to obtain the required film thickness.
In the case of 2 pack products, only the mixed product may be thinned.
