Klean-Strip Japan Drier is used to accelerate the drying of oil based paint, enamels and varnish. 2 to 4 ounces treats 1 gallon. Not for use with synthetic finishes. It is especially useful for speeding the drying of slower colors. Use a conservative amount as too much drier causes darkening and cracking of the paint.

I have a can of Crown Brand "Japan Drier" to speed the drying time. Can you tell me how much I add to a gallon of paint?
use ONLY with oil based paints. four ounces per gallon should do the trick. good quality oil based enamels are nice and thick so if you want the paint to glide on and produce a nice brush finish try using a little naphtha with the first coat. thin to the consistency of an eggnog.
A little goes a long way. I have had good luck with one ounce of japan drier to a gallon of paint. Make sure you don't put too much in, a little more if it is cool out and a little less if it is hot and sunny. Good luck with your project.
how do I get the msds sheets on this product?
You can find them right on the internet. Just type in japan drier msds sheets and it should be the first link you need to click on.Hope this was helpful.
contact OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
I believe the seller is required to be able to provide these for you. Also you can contact Klean strip directly and request them.
A painter used this in my oil base paint. He painted to floor at Easter and the scent is still so strong I cannot sleep in this room. Will the strong scent ever go away?
the scent should have gone away by now if the room was painted in April. There may be a lack of fresh air movement in the room so try to circulate the air with fans. The fastest way to get rid of the scent is to cover the area with fresh cut hay, leave it on the floor for a day and that should pick up and remove any remaining scent.
in my experience i have never noticed this to cause any odor. it sounds like something else might be going on. without knowing what paint he used, etc., etc., it would be impossible to diagnose your problem
If you mix Japan dryer in a batch of paint and put the unused remainder back in the can, will it have an adverse effect on the paint, like making it harden? Thanks
Yes it can cause the surface to skin over in the can. You will want to us a product that will displace the oxygen out of the can before you seal it so it won't skin over.
Can Japan Drier be used in aklyd base paint with pentetrol?
No idea. I bought it to tar wooden skiis. Sorry.
great product for exterior varnish
I varnished my teak rails on my Grand Banks with japan dryer mixed in. I was worried about the rain. The rain never came but 3 hours later the ground crew came by and were cutting the grass. There were blades of grass and dust flying all over my rails. Without Japan Dryer my work would have been tacky and all the varnish would have been ruined. But it was dry and just wiped off.
