I used 2333N instead of 333 to thin Interlux Prekote primer.Did I make a fatal mistake....I have already primed the boat?
I don't have any experience useing it as a thinner. I used it as a cleaning solvent after sanding for that use it is an excellent product cleans well and is fast drying so area is ready to paint as soon as you complete cleaning.
2333n is a paint thinner ,I have never used 333 and I am sure it is also over priced. Dogdidit

I plan to spray paint my canoe with 2part urethane and use the 2333n reducer for a thinner. I have a good sprayer that brings in outside breathing air. Anybody have any pointers, tricks, or things to avoid?Thanks
Sorry, but I applied my paint with a brush. Nonetheless, the 2333N was an excellent reducing solvent, and it thinned out the paint very nicely. It should do just fine in your sprayer. Be SURE to have a good breathing apparatus going at all times. This stuff is potent. Just walking around your painted canoe later without protection will give you a headache.
I usually use more thinner than recommended and always try test spraying on a piece of cardboard.
whats the big difference between 2333n than other reducers?
It dries slower than Interlux 2316N Spray Reducer. This allows the brush strokes so settle and give a more even surface.
Sorry, I don't know the difference between 2333N and other reducers. Although a male, I typically follow the directions, especially when using materials that might have significant consequences for using a substitute. We were using Interlux 'Perfection' to paint the decks of our trawler, so when it called for 2333N as a wipe down we used it so that we were strictly following the manufacturers directions. It was a big job so that I didn't want any unexpected problems.Honch
2333N is a very specific reducer for Interlux polyurethanes. It is a slower drying reducer and used typically for brushing, which is the typical application method for these 2 part urethanes since atomizing them produces very toxic vapors. Don't try to substitute anything else or try to mix your own.I have had excellent success using Interlux Perfection with this reducer and gotten flawless finishes using badger hair brushes and immaculate application conditions.
Most other solvents are for one part garnish. 2333n is for the different chemistry for the two part product.
I don't know. I bought it because it was the recommended thinner for the paint I bought.
I have no idea, because when you use Perfection (Interthane Plus) paint or varnish, Interlux stipulates that 2333n be used as the thinner. I am not aware of any comparable products, and would be reluctant to even try one for fear it would not work. The Perfection paint is too expensive to try experimenting with other solvents.
This is the answer we received from our Interlux Rep. "2333N is a slower evaporating solvent and is perfect for Brush or "Roll and Tip" applications. It is specifically formulated to work with 2 part polyurethanes as well as 2 part epoxies such as, Perfection, Interprotect 2000e, Epoxy Primecoat, as well as a few other products from Interlux. This solvent is not for use when spray application is desired-the correct solvent for spraying is 2316N, which is a faster evaporating solvent. 2333N is not able to be replace by any other single solvent as it is a proprietary blend, which is specifically formulated to work with the above referenced products. If there are any further questions about 2333N or any other Interlux products, please call our Tech Line @ 800 468 7589."
After correct selection of the coating for the substrate, surface prep is always number one on the list for good coating results, solvent selection is number two. Application methods and technique are number three as they primarily deliver the best cosmetic results, coating selection, surface prep and solvent selection are primarily for durability.Sometimes you can exchange one solvent for another less expensive or more user friendly solvent and get similar results. If you have the time to experiment you might be able to find a good substitute, however, if you are using Interlux two part paint or epoxy this is the best stuff to use. It is a mix of solvents that will extend brushing time and enhance paint adhesion. No single solvent will do this well with two part epoxy or poly urethane paints. Awlgrip has their own stuff too. If you choose to experiment, look for something that will flash off or evaporate cleanly, not leave any residue on the surface or mix with the paint and cause issues like fish eye or orange peel or blistering of the paint. In general, the more volatile simple solvents like alcohol, xylene, MEK and acetone clean a surface very well but they flash off so well that they don't extend brushing time or interfere with the chemical bonding process of a two part coating. They oilier types of solvents like turpentine or paint thinner when used as brushing liquids may remain in solution too long or not evaporate quickly enough and leave the surface too oily and interfere with the mechanical bond of your coating or cause other defects like fish eye, orange peel or blistering. It does cost more, but if 2333N is specified for your application, I would stick with it, they have already done the testing and understand the chemistry. Think of how much time you spend on surface prep and what your time is worth if you have to strip off the failed coating because you wanted to save some bucks on the solvent.
Exactly what I ordered
This stuff is fantastic. Ridiculously expensive, but great.
Essential for 2-part polyurethane
This is a must have for thinning 2-part linear polyurethane paints such as Perfection. Three coats covered my 11' PT11 nesting dinghy beautifully. Each coat used 1.3 oz. of the thinner. I've got LOTS of 2333N left over. Perfection is absolute magic for its easy, roll on "spray booth" glossy finish.

use when rolling
don't even attempt to paint on a warm day without 233n, keeping wet edge is sometimes tricky, two people make finish better, one rolls one tips
This is really good stuff. Used it to clean the rails prior to applying Cetol Natural Teak and Marine Gloss. I like to leave my brushes in it - it doesn't evaporate and keeps the brushes soft, clean and pliable.
