product information

Details

When added to interior and exterior emulsion and acrylic paints including coloured wood stains, Floetrol makes the paint work more like an oil-based paint.

It helps to eliminate brush and roller marks by improving the flow of the paint giving a much more professional finish and helping you to make progress more quickly.

Add Floetrol to improve paint flow and to allow the paint to adjust to more difficult conditions such as hot, cold and windy environments. 

Unlike damaging paint thinners, Floetrol does all this without affecting the inherent qualities of the paint and without affecting it’s colour.

When used in a paint sprayer, Floetrol allows up to 20% reduction in pressure without affecting the spray pattern or performance and helps to prevent clogging and wear and tear on tips.

Application

Details

How To Apply Floetrol

Stir your paint thoroughly and begin to apply in the normal manner. If paint the pulls, sets too fast, does not level or flow properly, add Floetrol until the paint spreads smoothly, easily and provides sufficient ‘wet-edge’. Allow the brush, roller or sprayer to be your guide.

To add Floetrol first shake the container well. Then add the Floetrol following the guidelines below and stir the mixture thoroughly. Now apply your paint and Floetrol mixture to your surface in the normal manner.

Using Floetrol with a Brush or Roller

Add approximately 7-10% per litre of paint. If the paint is thick, or in extreme temperatures, more Floetrol may gradually be added, up to 15% per litre.

Using Floetrol with an HVLP & Cup Gun sprayer

Add 5-10% per litre of paint. The amount depends on the consistency and flow properties of the paint. If the paint seems to thicken, add a tablespoon of water per litre of paint to thin it.

Using Floetrol with an Airless sprayer

Add up to 10% per litre of paint.

Using Floetrol for Faux finishing

Add 20-25% per litre of paint. Do not add too much conditioner for vertical surfaces as the technique may sag or vanish.

Please Note:

Floetrol is milky white in colour and as such cannot be used in clear varnishes.

Do not add Floetrol to oil or alkyd based paints including glycerophtalic paint, for these paints use Owatrol oil to achieve the same results.
