TYPES OF PAINTING CHEMICALS AND THE PURPOSE THEY SERVE!

Painting Chemicals

There are a lot of different chemicals and formulas in the paint department other than paint. Here’s a quick guide to what they are and their uses.

Acetone

This is a fast acting thinner, cleaner and remover for resins, inks, adhesives and contact cement. Also used for thinning and cleaning fibreglass. A heavy degreaser, it can be used as a metal cleaner prior to painting. For Acetone To Use – Click Here.

Mineralised Methylated Spirits

Also known as paint thinner, this petroleum distillate solvent is frequently used in the manufacturing and thinning of oil-based paints. Odourless mineral spirits have been refined to remove some odorous components. It is excellent as a paint thinner and for cleaning brushes or rollers after painting. For Mineralised Methylated Spirits – Click Here.

Rust Remover

(Mineralised Methylated Spirits)

This solution is applied with a stiff brush or aerosol spray and allowed to dry for 12 to 24-hours, depending on humidity (check manufacturer labeling and literature). It cuts through and dissolves rust from metal surfaces to form a metal shield that can be painted. When brushed on, the rust dissolves quickly and in jellied form, it clings well to vertical surfaces. These products are extremely harsh on the skin; protective gloves should be worn.

Xylene

A medium evaporating, clear, colourless aromatic hydrocarbon solvent for thinning varnishes and rubber. For Xylene – Click Here.
