LACQUER REDUCERS / THINNERS
About Lacquer Thinners:
Avoid Overuse of Lacquer Thinner – Most lacquers come ready to spray.
This includes Pre Catalyzed & Post Catalyzed, Air Dry, Instrument & Piano lacquers.
With the spray gun set up properly, add Lacquer Thinner
only as absolutely necessary to achieve a proper spray pattern.
Adding more thinner does not help the flow-out or drying time.
Control orange-peel, over-spray and lacquer flow-out with Flash-Off Control Solvent.
If blushing is the problem, add a small percentage of blush retarder
(the cool, rainy, humid weather additive).
Lacquer solids generally are somewhere between 20% - 25% solids and formulated to be,
Air Quality VOC, (volatile organic compounds / smog precursors), compliant as labeled.
Adding thinner will result in a non-compliant coating.
Excess thinner or reducer also results in a thinner coat of finish,
thus requiring additional coats to achieve the required appearance
and enough thickness to provide a durable protective coating.
