What it is Good For?
The viscosity of marine paint is crucial. 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. To facilitate that perfect consistency, 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. The Pettit 121 Paint Spraying Thinner comes in a convenient quart size and is a general purpose thinner, perfect for enhancing your paint and helping with spray application. With this particular product, paint should be thinned about 10% to 20%. You can test for accuracy with a viscosity cup.
