Hempel Thinner 08700 can be used on certain Hempel Products to thin paint when a low film thickness is required. It can also be used to clean tools used with the appropriate product.
Thinning is not generally necessary on Hempel products, however, it can be used if the paint is to be applied at a low film thickness (for example as a sealer coat). It can also be used if the paint has become too thick due to cold weather.
Thinning should be kept to a minimum in order to avoid affecting the quality of the paint.
