Bristol Finish Thinner (32oz)
For those circumstances when thinning your mixture is beneficial, we have the Bristol Finish Thinner. Specifically formulated for the Traditional Amber Resin, it is also a good solvent for cleaning slips of the brush, spills, and for cleaning brushes.
Tropical Reducer (32oz)
When the temperature rises above 90°F/32°C and the humidity is high, the Tropical Reducer helps slow down the curing reaction giving you a longer pot life, hence more working time.
In cold conditions from 55°F/13°C to 45°F/7°C the Traditional Amber Resin takes more time to cure. To counter this we have the Accelerator which can be used to speed up the cure time.
Satin Additive (8oz)
Use for reducing the natural gloss to a satin tint of choice.
