Hempel Thinners No. 1 (also known as 811) is a paint thinner and brush cleaner for use with Hempel single pack paints, primers and varnishes.
Hempel Thinners can be added to Hempel single pack paint and Hempel varnish products to improve its flow characteristics, increase the spreading rate and the ability to be absorbed which makes it easier to work with.
Hempel Thinners No. 1 (811) can be used with the following Hempel paint products:
However, exceeding the maximum recommended ratio of thinners can adversely affect the product. When the paint is thinned, the dry film thickness will be thinner when the solvents have evaporated and it may be necessary to apply another coat to obtain the required film thickness.
Each of the paint thinners has different characteristics so it is important to use the correct thinner for the paint or varnish that is being used. This information can usually be found on the Hempel product label or a Hempel paint guide.
It is important you only use the Thinners recommended for each application. Not doing so, or substituting other proprietary products, will result in an unsatisfactory finish. Also, with two-pack products, only thin the mixed product.
