NO! Laquer Thinner is used in automotive paint as a reducer. & sometimes a solvent. Paint Thinner thins Oil based home paint and used as a cleaning solvent for paint brush cleanup, Wood Stain, etc..... IF MY FALLEN MEMORY SERVES ME RIGHT., NOT LEFT.

composation of paint thinner

Paint thinner and water do not readily mix. Adding soap will make the thinner soluble in water. The resulting mixture will have an increased consistency and reduced vaporization.

You mean how to make the pint you presently have lighter/thinner ? Add turpentine.

Paint thinner is mineral spirits. Lacquer thinner is hotter than paint thinner and is used to thin lacquer paint,to clean surfaces prior to painting and to clean up some dried paints.

No. Paint thinner is mineral spirits. Lacquer thinner is hotter than paint thinner and is used to thin lacquer paint. It's also used to clean surfaces prior to painting and to clean up some dried paints.

Paint thinner is primarily a mixture of aliphatic hydrocarbons.

Because paint thinner is also oil based and water is not.

Paint thinner made for oil based paint will ruin latex paint. You can thin latex paint with water or flotrol.

User Avatar

Use a thinner for that paint, or just lacquer thinner if you're not sure.

User Avatar

Oh yes, paint thinner is flammable. Do not smoke while you are painting.

User Avatar

No, it won't work. Use regular paint thinner.

Paint Thinner! Then a shower...

User Avatar

No, you use water to thin latex paint. Thinner is for oil based paint.

User Avatar

You will ruin the latex paint. Latex paint is thinned with water. Paint thinner is for oil-based paints.

Paint thinner cannot permanently damage the paint but it may remove the wax. It can be used to remove bug splats and tar. Lacquer thinner will remove the paint and the primer.

User Avatar

If it's an oil base paint you use paint thinner. If it's latex you use water.

You must be referring to 'paint thinner' -it's used to make the paint thinner, strange as that may sound.

In one gallon of Paint thinner, there are 112.95 pounds. So if there are ten gallons of paint thinner, then the total pounds would be 1129.5.

Lacquer thinner evaporates quicker. It is cleaner or leaves less of a film than paint thinner. Lacquer thinner will thin most solvent based paint but paint thinner shouldn't be used to thin Lacquer. Lacquer dries from the surface painted out and enammal dries from the surface of the paint down to the surface painted. Using the wrong thinner affects how the paint dries and may affect the final finish.
