Owatrol Oil is an oil-based paint and wood stain additive that improves the flow of paint and eliminates brush marks. Owatrol Oil is colourless and can be used alone or adding to oil-based paints as a rust inhibitor. Used alone as a rust inhibitor it provides a tough, flexible finish, driving out excess moisture and air, displacing it from rusted metal, so stopping rust dead in its tracks. Used alone on porous wood surfaces, Owatrol oil will saturate and protect the wood from damage caused by moisture and prevent paint from peeling. When added as a paint conditioner to any oil or alkyd based coatings it will give increased wet edge time, improved flow and greater adhesion. Unlike damaging thinners, it will maintain the inherent quality of the paint without affecting its appearance or drying times, allowing you to achieve a more professional finish.
