Hempel's Thinner 08080


Apart from a few special situations, thinning is not necessary. Paints are designed to be applied out of the can, so once the paint has been thoroughly mixed (together with a curing agent if appropriate), there should not normally be a need for the addition of thinner. There are general reasons for when to use thinner and when not to use thinner. To learn more about these reasons please visit Technical Guideline ‘Use of Thinner’
