DIY skills Through thick and thin with paint solvents

As paint manufacturers it never ceases to astound us that the painting public (and even professional painters) are so casual about the use of thinners. 

Perhaps this is a spin off by users applying various brands of water base paints and knowing that the solvent is water. Likewise when using ‘oil based’ paints the recognition that turps does the job probably suggests that all solvents are the same. In fact nothing can be further from the truth.

At Norglass we build all of our products around the most appropriate combination of solvents that offer the most compatible blending of the resins and other ingredients to match the paints.
