Penetrol and Mineral Spirits mixed together?

4 posts in this topic

Hello -

I was recently painting my hull on a warm day with some wind.  As the paint (Interlux yacht enamel) was drying quickly, I added some penetrol to the paint.

I am now about to apply my final coat and I want that coat to be super thin so I wanted to add some mineral spirits (or Interlux 333) to the paint.

The penetrol is still mixed in to the remaining paint - can I mix in a bit of mineral spirits into the remaining paint that already has the Penetrol in it?

Thank you.

Interlux recommends using their Brushing Liquid # 333 for thinning their Yacht Enamel.

Thank you for your reply.  I do have some #333 Brushing Liquid.  But my ultimate question is/was:  can I use the #333 to thin the Yacht Enamel, if the Yacht Enamel already has Penetrol in it?  Or, does that mixture of #333 and Penetrol have adverse affects?  Thanks again, I buy a lot of stuff from you folks....

I don't think adding 333 thinner to the Enamel that has Penetrol in it will be a problem if it needs thinning.
