THINNERS & SOLVENT BASED ADDITIVES

LACQUER THINNER

Superior quality all purpose thinners designed for use with our Magna-Shield®, LOW VOC lacquers and most other lacquers including modified acrylics. For Water-Clear or acrylic lacquers, Lacquer Thinner #2 is recommended. Also excellent for neutralizing or washing of furniture and millwork surfaces after stripping, in preparation for refinishing, though our Wash Thinner offers improved performance and cost economy for neutralizing after stripping.

Each blend uniquely designed and balanced to accommodate weather condition(s) or changing weather conditions, type of lacquer, and finishing demand. IMPORTANT, ALL LACQUER THINNERS ARE NOT THE SAME! Wrong ingredients within a lacquer thinner can swell a pre-cat lacquer causing inferior flow out, orange peel, hazy film, and/or bubbles. For example, too much acetone, alcohols or aliphastic solvents in a blend can cause these effects. For best results, and productivity, do not mix our lacquers with thinners and additives from other suppliers – always stay within the same product line.

For most applications and weather conditions, Lacquer Thinner #1 is perfect. When it gets extremely hot and humid (in combination), Lacquer Thinner #2 is recommended. However, at 100% relative humidity or while raining, avoid spraying altogether, if possible. If not possible, avoid using thinners altogether and substitute the Magna-Shield® Retarder, not exceeding 10% by volume.

This unique, non-flammable lacquer retarder also benefits as an excellent flow out and no-blush solvent. That is, the benefit of three products in one. Use as an additive to our Quick Drying Wood Filler for brushing application.

Use as stand alone additive (up to 10% by volume) during hot and humid water (no thinning with lacquer thinner). Requires a fraction of the amount compared to other retarders, but, more important, will not leave a finish soft as others when properly used.

Blend of specialty solvents designed to help fast drying lacquers flow out better, eliminating orange peel, pin holes, craters and air bubbles. Can also be spray applied over semi-dry lacquer via a medium coat, to level orange peel and/or improve partially dry film’s surface imperfections.

Removes blush from sprayed lacquers, after the fact. It partially redissolves the lacquer then releases entrapped moisture. Spray a medium coat over the blushed lacquer. Levels orange peel and overspray too. Doesn’t leave the film soft. Quick drying.

Add to conventional lacquers and Magna-Shield® to eliminate blushing while spraying in hot and humid weather. Contains no retarders hence will not slow down the drying time nor leave the finish soft. Add 4 to 6 oz. per quart of thinned lacquer or sealer. Slight blushing may occur on very hot and humid days but will disappear upon drying.

A must for a furniture refinisher. The fish-eye eliminator prevents and/or stops fish-eyes caused by silicone contamination, while the wet spots eliminator stops and/or prevents wet spots caused by parafin waxes found in finish removers (used to retard evaporation) and, in many furniture polishes.
