Terpenol solvent - KN code: 38140090
Each paint type has its typical thinner/solvent. These are often incompatible. Another important feature of thinners is the speed of evaporation. If a paint coat dries too quickly, the time is not sufficient for spreading out to a smooth, even layer. If it dries too slowly, the paint can flow down on vertical surfaces and absorb a lot of dust. The following picture contains the solvents used in thinners and their relative speed of evaporation. (The combination of appropriate solvents allows elaborating almost all evaporation velocities requested.)
- Terpenol solvent dissolves the (semi-)solid binders and helps the formation of homogeneous mixtures from binders, pigments and additives.
- It serves as an agent that helps to bring the paint from the box to the surface.
- It provides for the proper viscosity of the paint to facilitate the formation of smooth, even paint layers.
- For thinning paints and varnishes,
- for cleaning tools.
- May cause sensitisation by skin contact.
- Toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment.
- Harmful: may cause lung damage if swallowed (in case of aspiration of foreign matters in the respiratory tract).
- Repeated exposure may cause skin dryness or cracking.
- Vapours may cause drowsiness and dizziness.
