Features

Features and Benefits

N/A
  • Improves application: When used in Chemglaze® coatings, Chemglaze® 9951 thinner improves flow properties for spray application and provides better control of application film thickness.
  • Aids air release: Chemglaze® 9951 thinner aids in air/bubble release and minimizes air entrapment.

Uses

Uses

N/A To reduce viscosity of Chemglaze® polyurethane coatings.

Directions for Use

Mixing

N/A Premix Chemglaze® coating before adding the thinner. Refer to appropriate data sheet for coating mixing instructions. Allow thinner to warm to 13°C (55°F) before use. Slowly add thinner while stirring the mixed coating.

Applications

N/A Conventional Spray Application
Use Chemglaze® 9951 thinner to reduce Chemglaze® polyurethane coatings to a Zahn Cup #2 viscosity of 18-20 seconds. Dilute coating 5-25% by volume with Chemglaze® 9951 thinner.
Electrostatic Spray Application
Use Chemglaze® 9951 thinner for fine spray control. Dilute coating 5-25% by volume with Chemglaze® 9951 thinner and methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK).
Brush and Roller Applications
Use Chemglaze® 9951 thinner to dilute Chemglaze® polyurethane coatings up to 5% by volume for brush application, and up to 10% by volume for roller application.
