Interlux Paint Thinners and Solvents

Varnish and Paint Thinners and solvents designed specifically to react well with Interlux Paint Systems. Refer to the handy paint thinner guide for some tips on which product to choose.

Interlux thinner 216 is a special evaporating solvent that improves paint drying times in cold temperatures and makes spray application easier. Boating enthusiasts and boatbuilders use it to remove leftover sanding residue from hulls. Also used to clean bare aluminum and for cleaning paint equipment.

Interlux Solvents

Interlux 202 Fiberglass wash is made of several solvents that evaporate at different rates. Used on gel coat, to clean parts and as a utility wipe down solvent. Interlux solvent 355 is to be used for reducing Viny-lux primewashing, antifoulings, and VC offshore to make brushing and spraying easier. Interlux 433 Brush-ease solvent dries slow to make brushing and rolling easier. Not an all purpose solvent, Brush Ease 433 is primarily used with antifouling paints. Interlux 333 Brushing Liquid solvent dries slowly to make brushing easier, and extends drying in hot weather. Can also be used to remove sanding residue from fiberglass and wood.

Interlux 299 Paint stripper will remove paint from any surface, even fiberglass.
