International & Hempel Thinners and Solvents

Yacht Chandlers supply a large range of marine paint thinner and other solvents. These thinners are used to change the constancy of paints; thinners can also be used to clean up after painting. "Paint Thinner" is usually mineral spirits having a low flash point at about 40 ºC (104 ºF). Preparation for painting will require the consistency of paint is correct to suit the application. Spray painting requires the addition of a great deal of Thinners to allow the paint to be sprayed through a fine jet or nozzle. Brush painting the same product could be achieved without the use or with only a small amount of thinners. The finish of a sprayed component would normally be far superior in finish than that of the same brush painted object.
