Thinners & Solvents

      Boat Paint Thinner

      Like their cars, boat owners love to show off their craft. Since your boat’s paint job is very eye-catching, and key to maintaining its value, it’s important that it be properly cared for. To preserve your boat’s showroom quality finish, know that Wholesale Marine carries a wide variety of boat paint thinners by such trusted brands as Interlux, Pettit, and Aquaguard.

      What Does it Do?

      Marine paint’s viscosity is critical to a successful finish. If it’s too thick, then the paint won’t brush or roll evenly. If it’s too thin, the paint will become watery, with potential to dry wrong and need a do-over. For that perfect consistency, boat paint thinner can be added to your marine paint. There are different types of boat paint thinner, with variations specified for warmer climates, cooler climates, and type of application.

      One product we recommend is Pettit 121 Paint Spraying Thinner. It’s available in a convenient quart size and is a general purpose thinner, ideal for enhancing your paint and making short work of spray applications. With this particular product, thin the paint to 10% to 20% for best results. Wholesale Marine also carries solvent washes for reducing waxy build-up, degreasing parts, and removing surface mold.
