Xylol (Xylene) has excellent solvency characteristics and a medium fast evaporations rate. It is the recommended thinner and reducer for hard to thin oil base paints and coatings.
- 100% pure, Xylol is the preferred thinner for anti-rust paints, porch and floor enamels, and most other synthetic enamel finishes.
- Paint thinned with Xylol give off flammable vapors during drying. Always follow the coating manufacturer's direction and warnings and be aware of the increased fire hazard when coating large areas.
- Limit flammable vapors by only using a few ounces of Xylol at a time. Wait until all vapors are gone between uses.
