Re: Thinning Floquil Paints

Lacquer thinner works well and you can control the the drying time by getting fast drying or medium drying thinner. I have been using xylol for the past 50 years.
If you are interested here is a post from a while back that has the exact diosol formula.
copied the Diosol formula posted in one of the yahoo groups several
years ago by a chemist who lab analyzed and posted the formula. This
is as posted verbatim.
"38% by vol toluene, 41% by vol xylene and 21% by vol Solvesso
100 (a long evaporation rate aromatic hydrocarbon solvent). Getting
the toluene and xylene is not difficult, but the Solvesso 100 is only
available through chemical suppliers."
I was fortunate to have a local paint manufacturer - Sherwin Williams
- that could provide the Solvesso 100 which is also known as Naptha 100.
Also, I would never soak anything other than metal in Diosol. And
acetone is not a paint thinner. Cleanup, yes. Thinner, no.
