Hempel Paint is produced and supplied in such a way that thinning is normally not necessary provided the paint is properly mixed/stirred. However, if the paint is to be applied in a low film thickness (for instance as a "sealer coat") or if the paint has become too thick, e.g. in cold weather, the HEMPEL THINNER(s) indicated on the product
data sheet may be added to obtain a consistency most suitable for application.
As a general rule, thinning should be kept at a minimum as the quality of the paint work will suffer from too liberal thinning. However, if application is to take place at high temperatures (air and/or steel), thinning may even beyond the limits mentioned on the data sheets exceptionally be necessary in order to avoid dry-spray and poor film formation.
Hempel's Thinners are blended to give the best results with regard to brush ability, spray properties, etc. The respective product data sheet and - when available - the APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS should be consulted.
See relevant products data sheet for application details.
