TotalBoat Special Brushing Thinner 100

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, TotalProtect Epoxy Primer, TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Barrier Coat, and solvent-based TotalBoat antifouling paints Underdog, KeelHauler, Krypton, Spartan, AlumiPaint AF, and Outdrive AF.

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.

Great stuff, sure e nough!


Buy it by the gallon. It has lots of uses, especially if you read and follow the suggestions on the side of other Total Boat products...(Wet Edge, Lust etc.) There is not one Total Boat product that has turned out to be less than I expected. Great Stuff, Sure E nough!

Was not purposeful for my application


This product is not useful when applying varnish to a vertical surface ie mast or transom. In my case the thinner only caused the varnish to run and drip more. I would have done better with a thickener. A waste of money for me!




Excellent product


This worked very well with Brightside and when doing the interprotect barrier coat. Much better price too.

Great product and highly recommended!


This was recommended to go with the Total Boat Wet Edge topside paint and I'm so glad I purchased it! Works great and does exactly what its supposed to do. Sure thinner is thinner but in the use case of painting boats I'd go with this since its specifically formulated for use with boat paints!
