HELP ME PLEASE

Post by htxj on October 25th 2012, 1:34 am

Got my paint (primer and final), sandpaper dry/wet/blocks, and denatured alcohol.

Is it okay to use Klean Strip Odorless Mineral Spirits?! I've received mixed answers about this, apparently it increases the drying time?

The only difference between odorless and regular mineral spirits is that the odorless version has been refined more to remove all traces of faster evaporating solvents (mainly xylene). Normal mineral spirits contains about 1% of these unremoved solvents, which gives the mineral spirits a slight odor.

It's possible that this 1% faster evaporating solvent mixture could cause a faster drying time when using regular mineral spirits, but I don't think it would make all that much of a difference. Maybe somebody else who has more experience with the two types can chime in?

Also, make sure it isn't the Klean Strip "Green" Odorless Mineral Spirits. This version is 65% water and only 35% mineral spirits. Definitely won't work for painting purposes. This version is milky white in color, not clearish like 100% mineral spirits.

It was the Klean Strip one with water, went to Home depot and the paint guy there told me to just buy the paint thinner made with mineral spirits. Also picked up penetrol.
