Thinners have a general purpose and are used for a wide range of varieties. Very commonly, a thinner is used as a solvent to clean brushes, spray guns, or tools after paint jobs. But importantly thinners are used to regulate the paint, primer, filler, or clear coat viscosity and evaporation rates. After that, it will be easier to use the paint for certain materials or painting applications.
How much thinner shall I use?
The ratio of reducers or thinners that should be used for water-based paints, solvent-based paints, and acrylic paints, differs. We always recommend that you follow the manufacturer's recommendation for mixing ratio, and this includes diluents often. Failure to follow the manufacturer's recommendation will often result in your result not being as expected.
