Boat Paint Thinner
A boat’s paint job can have a huge impact on its value as well as pride in ownership. As it is key to maintaining its value, it’s important that it be properly cared for. To preserve your boat’s showroom quality finish, Wholesale Marine carries a wide variety of boat paint thinners by such trusted brands as Interlux, Pettit, and Aquaguard to use when caring for your boat's painted finish.
What Does Boat Paint Thinner Do?
The viscosity of your marine paint is critical to a successful finish. If it’s too thick, then the paint won’t apply evenly. If it’s too thin, the paint will have a tendency to dry wrong and require a re-application. For that perfect consistency, boat paint thinner may be added to your marine paint. There are different types of boat paint thinners, with variations specified for warmer climates, cooler climates, and your specific type of application.
A favorite product among boat enthusiasts is Pettit 121 Paint Spraying Thinner. It is available in a convenient quart size and is a general purpose boat paint 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.
