Paint & Varnish Thinners and Solvents

A complete line of solvents, cleaners, thinners, reducers, and agents by paint companies like Interlux, Z Spar, Awlgrip and Epifanes, and from chemical companies like Sterling and Recochem. Every solvent you'd need from acetone, denatured alcohol, linseed oil, muriatic acid, toluol, xylol and more.

When selecting a thinner for use with your paint or varnish project, be aware that different lacquer thinners have different proportions of acetone. Brands like Recochem make lacquer thinners that are less flammable as they feature toluene instead of acetone as the primary active ingredient. This thinner is used mostly to thin lacquer based paints. Use the minimum amount of thinner by gradually adding to the lacquer. You know you've added enough when the paint flows freely. If too much thinner is added, the paint will run and drip and otherwise ruin your chances for the desired smooth, high gloss finish lacquer is known for. Other uses for the lacquer thinner include cleaning and flushing paint spraying equipment. Lacquer thinners are also useful for cleaning painting tools like brushes, sprayers, rollers, and applicators.

Toluol is a toluene based solvent for certain oil pants, lacquers, and adhesives. Used mostly by paint chemists.

Xylol is a thinner similar to Toluol but with a slower rate of evaporation. Also great as a shop cleaner and degreaser.

Mineral Spirits are an all-purpose solvent particularly useful for thinning oleoresinous paint, enamel, and varnish. Also great for cleaning tools.

Linseed oil is available in raw or boiled form. Raw linseed oil helps wood retain moisture to prevent checking, cracking, and shrinking. Boiled linseed can be added to oil based paints to speed film drying and hardness.

Paint Thinner from Sterling Recochem is available in Red label or blue label. Red label thinner is great not only for thinning coatings, but also for cleaning tools, and removing wax, grease and dust from surfaces before refinishing.

Denatured Alcohol is great for use with shellac, but will not thin most other coatings. Campers and others have sworn by it for years for use in alcohol stoves. Not potable, denatured means it is poisonous and dangerous!

Turpentine is a thinner made of oil and resin from conifer trees. Pure turpentine has been supplanted by synthetic versions, but it remains a powerful solvent or drying agent.

Acetone is a strong solvent good for dissolving two part epoxy before it sets up, for thinning resins, and cleaning fiberglass repair tools. Serious stuff!

Brush Cleaner is a water-rinsable milder solvent for removing paint, shellac, varnish etc from natural and nylon paint brushes.
