Hempel Thinner

Hempel thinners improve the flow properties of boat paints, clear varnishes for powerboats and sailboats, and antifouling and boat primers. Before using Hempel thinners, make sure that the brushes and rollers can withstand the solvents contained in the thinner and that the thinner selected is compatible with your Hempel boat paint.
