Question

can laquer thinner be used in place of this ?

Asked on 10/05/2012 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

Don't try guessing which thinner to use. Look on the paint can and it will tell you what to use. 216 does not smell like lacquer thinner to me.

You really need to use the product that is recommended for the paint you are using.

Question

I just painted the bottom of my boat with Interlux VC17. Unfortunately, the tape I used to mask off at waterline left an uneven edge is spots. I'd like to remove the overspray with a solvent, without harming my (painted) hull. Will this product do the job?

Top Answer

Not sure if this will safely remove overspray without harming the paint. I'd try a small spot first.

Question

What is the difference between this product and MEK or acetone?

Asked on 05/27/2014 by bill herzfeld

Top Answer

I am not a chemist so I cannot tell you exactly. I have been painting boats since 1966 though. 216 is designed to flash off just right, it works perfectly with Interlux products to produce excellent end results. It does not smell like MEK or Acetone, if you are trying to save a few dollars by not using this thinner you will be making a mistake. 216 will give you a predictable end result you will be pleased with.

Question

what paints can this be used with?

Asked on 05/16/2014 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

Look on any Interlux can and it will tell you if this is the right thinner for it. I think 216 is for most of their one part paints but check the can of the paint you are going to use to be sure.
