Interlux 333 Brushing Liquid is a slow drying solvent used to ease brushing and facilitate the flow of specified paint coatings. 333 extends paint drying time in hot weather and is also recommended in various topside systems for removing sanding residue from fiberglass and wood surfaces.
Brushing Liquid 333 improves flow and extends working time of Interlux Schooner, Superspar, and Interior Rubbed Varnishes, especially in warm weather. Also works well with other Interlux paints including Yacht Enamel and Brightside Polyurethanes.

live in south florida , painting a 20'flats Boat looking at the interlux topside paint ( steel grey). Do I need to purchase the 333 to thin out the paint ? if so how much paint & 333 should I purchase and what ratio do I thin.
You'll have to move extremely fast and make no mistakes, but it's possible. I wouldn't recommend it though. I thinned mine about 1/3 while painting 30ft sailboat topsides in summer of the FL keys and could barely keep up.

I used the brushing thinner to mix with Interlux filler stain not for paint thinning. Paint should only be thinned enough to be easily brushable and depending on the paint may not need any thinning. A 1 quart can of thinner should be enough for your job.

I only used this product to mix and dilute Interlux mahogany stain. I stained an entire 20' Chris Craft runabout inside and out. I still have 2/3's of the container left. I also have used some of it as a solvent. I hope this helps. Regards, Chuck Ford

I use this to apply Interlux Brightside paint. I use the brushing liquid at a ratio of 10%, so a little goes a really long way. I painted my entire 16 ft Power Cat (with an 8' beam) with less than a quart. I recommend reading the label on the intended paint for coverage estimates and thinning instructions. Also, I use rollers and brushes to paint, the instructions are different if you are going to spray.
Answered on 2/22/2015 by JOHN MARTIN from undisclosed
Yes, but the main purpose is to allow the paint to flow and level out, thus eliminating brush marks.
Answered on 2/1/2015 by JOHN NOTCH from undisclosed
The short answer is yes. It works great for cutting Inerlux's Brightside paint for applying via roll and tip method. It's also very expensive and I've found in most of my uses that normal, everyday, run of the mill, mineral spirits from any hardware store works just as well although I continue to use 333 in the most conspicuous locations. Chemically, 333 is kerosene with some naptha added so it's vapors are not much nastier to breath than any other solvent. It may give you a little more time than mineral spirits to work to your last wet edge when applying your next section of paint. Hope this helps - Good luck.

Yes it is a thinner. I use it with Brightsides paint.
Answered on 2/22/2015 by JOHN MARTIN from undisclosed
Can this be used to clean brushes which have applied brightside paint?
If the paint appears yellow inside the can when you open it, it's most likely to be due to separation of the solvent from the pigment. This is normal. Be sure to have the product well stirred before use, and stir occasionally during use. I have use Brightside White that was a couple of years old. I stirred it well and the final result was excellent. As for brushing liquid 333, I only use that when applying varnish. I thin the varnish for the first coat or two on bare wood. I also use it when varnishing on particularly warm days. It helps the varnish flow out smoothly instead of being very thick. I hope this helps.

You can add a Very small amount of blue to the white. However I painted my first boat inside with bright side and perfection out side and it never yellowed
Answered on 6/13/2013 by CHARLES SMITH from undisclosed
You can but it's an expensive way to go. Paint thinner will work for 1/4 the price.

I have used this product to thin paint for a better application. I also used it to clean brushes however, I also used product #216 which is more of a thinner and cleaner. Hope this helps.

I clean badger brushes with the reducer recommended for the product that I am using.I then wash with warm soapy water, shape the bristles and let dry.
Answered on 6/4/2012 by GARY SOWARD from undisclosed
You probably could, but it would be expensive. I use Mineral Spirits. I keep three large solvent resistant paint buckets for cleaning. One with my "dirty" Spirits for the initial cleaning with about a quart of spirits in it. This gets pretty mucky after a cleaning. Thoroughly clean the brush in this first bucket, use a brush spinner to get rid of the excess, do it again, and again. Then go to the "Clean Spirits" bucket that has about half a quart of spirits in it. Clean, spin, clean, spin, clean spin. There should be essentially no discoloring in the clean bucket. Let the dirty spirits sit for a day. All the varnish will settle to the bottom of the bucket. Carefully pour off the relatively clean spirits off the top into the empty bucket you have. Dispose of the scum in the bottom of the first and you are ready to go again.

I've only used this for help in applying product and it work very good. What material are you trying to get out of the badger brush?

Answered on 3/22/2012 by MATT MAHONEY from undisclosed
No. It has two uses. One is to wipe down bare wood just before your first coat of varnish. The second is to add to the varnish for thinning (the first two coats). You can add a small amount to the varnish for later coats, especially if you are in a hot climate, as it allows the varnish to flow smoothly and extends the drying time on hot days. I live in North Carolina and it can get pretty hot here. Note, however, that when the humidity comes up, I forget about applying varnish and go do something else where there is air conditioning.

I use the 333 as a thinner for Brightsides one part LPU paint, which is a bit thick to lay down well when brushed right from the quart can. Works fine. I estimate I thin at 5% maximum.
Always thin after pouring some from the can, that way, if the cup is too thin, you can pour the small cup full back into the can and start over, more conservatively adding thinner. I clean brushes in cheap thinner from Home Depot.

333 is a great thinner for brushing brush/roller use on one part polyurethane paint. Not sure your purpose in using it after varnish, but I've used brushes dipped in it to smooth brush-lines in recently applied polyurethane paint.
Answered on 3/24/2012 by KERRY BRANT from undisclosed
I used it more or less as a varnish after I sanded all the old finish off the wood.
Answered on 3/23/2012 by Gene Quenneville from undisclosed
Is it generally recommended to thin Brightsides w/ Brushing Liquid 333? If so, what's the ratio and does the ration change from the first to last coat? I'll be painting a wooden kayak.
At the hint of a professional varnisher in St. Lucia, added it to Epifanes Clear varnish to do brightwork in the tropical sun. Really makes a difference in how easy the varnish flows on, and creates a mirror smooth finish. The only drawback is that the final thickness is less than before so more coats are required.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
