    Default Thinner for Glptal

    Does anyone know what the thinner is for Glyptal (insulating paint) On the can it says to use Glyptal thinner 1500, whatever that is.

    According to the MSDS, mostly xylene, naphtha and some other stuff.

    They also specify straight Xylol/Xylene for multiple, thin-coat buildup. Stock in trade given I can't be bothered to mess with a vacuum chamber of the sort 9100 built for his projects.

    "Big Box" stock the Xylol. Usually. It's also great for removing tile mastic & de-gumming lawn-mower carbs, filters & such.

    And which works a treat with Glyptal. More than 60 years. And counting. Red Glyptal. Or the black. Both are mostly speciality "Alkyd" family, after all.

    The yellow, green, blue are new to me. Different chemistry, entirely, IIRC.
