Adding Floetrol to SW Pro Classic

cearbhaillNovember 26, 2012

Is it OK to add a little Floetrol to Sherwin Williams Pro Classic Interior Acrylic Latex? Meaning will it impact the durability of the paint over the long term?

I love this paint but I am a paint over worker and it is so thick!

I am TRYING to curb my inclination to overwork it but feel like an ounce or so of Floetrol would help me a lot.

Is it OK?

I'm getting ready to do some cabinets with it and just KNOW I am going to leave brushmarks.

I have never operated a sprayer (and only have 12 doors to do) but I did order a Chinex Excaliber brush and will do the doors horizontally.

I am a good prepper.

Just looking for any help I can get with the paint viscosity.

Floetrol is OK and yes you can add some( follow directions)

XIM extender is way, way, better if you can find it.

I wouldn't add floetrol. It may behave pretty good but Proclassic it's runny paint. You can't apply thick coat. Floetrol can make it even worse. It's very easy to have a lot of drips.
