Airbrush thinners 2.0 ENML FAQ

Manufacturer recommends their own thinner for best results, won't 3rd party thinner like this cause problems?


Not really. The warning you can see on your paint bottle is a precaution as people often experiment when it comes to paint thinning. Experiments may cause all sorts of problems with coat quality and overall painting experience. VMS Thinners were extensively tested therefore experimentation is not a case. The warning doesn't apply as we made sure that you won't experience any problems while using our thinner. Therefore you may go ahead and use VMS thinners with your enamels.   


Broad spectrum thinners that can work with just any enamel paint?


Sure they can, it is all about the right composition. Our enamel thinners are proprietary combination of aromatic and aliphatic hydrocarbon fluids with varying boiling ranges ensuring gradual paint drying and curing.
