$29.99

*****FREE SHIPPING*****

Penetrol® is a free-flowing, low-odor, high quality penetrating paint additive which compensates for the adverse effects that weather and surface conditions have on paints and primers.

  • Makes exterior oil and alkyd paints, primers and stains flow more smoothly
  • Reduces brush and roller marks
  • Increases adhesion to prevent peeling and blistering
  • Improves penetration
  • Stops and prevents rust
  • Restores color to fiberglass

GENERAL PAINTING FOR INTERIOR & EXTERIOR WORK (add to oil-based paint or primers)

DIRECTIONS:
1. Stir and mix oil-based paint thoroughly.
2. Always mix a small amount of Penetrol with the paint you are using to determine compatibility.
3. As paint begins to set up too fast or “drag”, stir in Penetrol. Begin with approximately one pint (16 oz.) Penetrol per gallon of paint.
4. If paint is thick, or in extreme hot or cold temperatures, more Penetrol may be added (up to 2.5 pints per gallon of paint).

Note: For brass, copper, aluminum and chrome, scrub surface with fine steel wool soaked in Penetrol and polish with a clean rag.

CONDITIONING BARE OR RUSTED METAL

DIRECTIONS:
1. Remove loose rust, excess dirt, oil and grease.
2. Be sure surface is dry.
3. Saturate the metal with Penetrol.
4. Allow 12-24 hours for drying.

Note: For brass, copper, aluminum and chrome, scrub surface with fine steel wool soaked in Penetrol and polish with a clean rag.

CONDITIONING FIBERGLASS

DIRECTIONS:
1. Clean surface to be conditioned.
2. Saturate a rag with Penetrol, wipe it on fiberglass surface.
3. Buff surface with a clean, soft cloth within 3-5 minutes.

FAUX FINISHING

DIRECTIONS:
1. Penetrol, mixed directly into oil or alkyd-based paint, will improve the brushability of your paint and level of the base coat
2. Penetrol keeps paint from drying too fast thus increasing the working time of your paint and glazes
3. The more Penetrol you add to the mixture (glaze) the more open time you will have and the more translucent the finish
4. Do not add too much conditioner for vertical surfaces as the technique may cause the paint to sag or vanish
5. Using an empty can or disposable cup as a measuring device, mix 3 volumes of alkyd (oil Paint) to 1 volume of Penetrol.

CLEANUP & STORAGE
• Store in a tightly closed container away from heat and flame.
• Cleanup with mineral spirits

DANGER – rags, steel wool or waste soaked with this product may spontaneously catch fire if improperly discarded. Immediately after use, place rags, steel wool or waste in a sealed, water-filled metal container.

    Flood Penetrol

    I used to be a painting contractor several decades ago. Though most people today have taken the path of least resistance and use water-based latex paint exclusively, oil-based paint is unquestionably superior in every way for interior/exterior trim (baseboards, crown moldings, doors, cabinets, etc...) in terms of durability, washability, adhesion and quality of finish if your prep work and application is done properly. Flood Penetrol is an absolute must when using oil-based paint for several reasons. It extends the drying time, makes the paint flow easier without thinning it (affecting hide), adjusts for temperature/humidity and most of all causes the paint to self-level virtually eliminating brush/bristle marks. With proper technique, the right amount of Penetrol mixed in with your paint and most importantly, very high quality natural bristle (boar/china) brushes you can achieve a completely smooth, glass-like finish that is indistinguishable from a sprayed finish. You cannot achieve that level of perfection with water-based paint! Yes, you have to clean your expensive brushes thoroughly with mineral spirits every single time you use them. However, if you take care of them they will last many many years, even a decade or more. Never use inexpensive synthetic brushes/rollers with oil-based paint. There are multiple youtube videos showing the proper way to use Penetrol. At the link below is a fantastic video demonstrating the benefits of oil-based paint with Penetrol. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKct618AyTs
