Product Details

Multi-purpose TotalBoat Special Brushing Thinner 100 improves the flow for solvent-based TotalBoat paints and primers applied by brush or roller. Formulated especially for use with TotalBoat Wet Edge topside paint, TotalGold, TotalTread non-skid paint, and others.

Note: Use Epoxy Primer Thinner 200 with TotalProtect & Aluminum Boat Barrier Coat Primers. Do not use Brushing Thinner 100 with these 2 primers.

Due to its slower drying properties, Thinner 100 improves flow and helps preserve the wet edge, extending the working time in warm weather conditions (over 75°F) when applying TotalBoat Topside Primer or TotalBilge paint by brush or roller.

After painting, use Special Brushing Thinner 100 to clean painting tools and equipment quickly and easily.

Available in Quart and Gallon sizes.

Info & Guides
THINNING NOTES: TotalBoat Spray Thinner 101 can be substituted for Special Brushing Thinner 100 in cool-weather applications, below 60°F, to promote excellent flow, wet edge properties, and faster dry times. In addition, Spray Thinner 101 is the recomended thinner for spray application of most TotalBoat one-part finishes.

Paint thinner.
By Minorkey from Pennsylvania

Verified Purchase

Product seems ok, but just so blooming expensive. Should be some way to find out whether it is just plain old fashioned, cheap paint thinner from your local paint store.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

Great brush cleaner and thinner
By Sailor1856 from Southington, CT

Verified Purchase

I used Brushing thinner 100 for thinning varnish, Gleam 2.0, And for cleaning brushes after. It was a great thinner and worked well with inaccurate "eye" measuring. As a brush cleaner I was really amazed how quick it worked compared to mineral spirits. The brushed came out real clean, ready for the next job.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Worked perfectly with the Lust varnish
By KPD from Annapolis, MD

Verified Purchase

We were told not to thin the last coat or it wouldn't have full shine. We worked in an environment where we needed the flow and time the thinner affords to get the swim deck restored. Fortunately, the thinner didn't take anything at all away fromt he beautiful gloss coat of the Lust finish

33 Year old teak swim deck restored after years of neglect
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Works great, but not necessarily needed for wipe down in between layers when you can use Denatured Alcohol instead.
