    • Use in all water-based paints 
    • Improves the flow and maintains the wet edge – paint without effort 
    • Improves the finish – maintains the inherent quality and characteristics of the paint 
    • Suitable for interior and exterior use and great for special effects

    • Improves paint flow and workability. 
    • Minimises paint streaks and roller marks.

    • Prepare surface as per instructions on the paint can.

    • Brush or roller : add between 10-20% per litre of paint 
    • HVLP Cup Gun Spray : Add 5-10% per litre of paint to achieve the desired consistency and flow. If paint seems to thicken, add a tablespoon of water per litre of paint to thin. 
    • Airless spray : add 10% per litre of paint. 
    • Special effects : add 20-25 % per litre of paint. Decorative Painting – ditto or higher ratio. 
    • Do not add Floetrol to oil or alkyd based paints, including glycerophtalic paints. 
    • Do not use in clear acrylic varnish. 
    • Always test for compatibility  ensure Floetrol is well mixed in.
