What is the suggested amount of Floetrol to add to a gallon of paint to reduce brush strokes? We are painting with Behr Marquee latex paint tinted black. We are using high quality brushes and are still getting fine brush strokes. We are painting unfinished dining room chairs that I want to distress by sanding edges and corners. This product was suggested and seems to have great reviews.

Answer: 
It's not a mildewcide. Its purpose is to thin latex paint without changing the color, and to reduce the appearance of brush marks.

Answer: 
The product is mildewcide resistant but its purpose is to improve flow and reduce brush marks. It’s not mildewcide addictive mean to give paint any extra protection.

My contractor has never heard of FLOETROL. I am trying to convince him to use it to give my project a really smooth finish. He doesn't use sprayers on small indoor projects only brushes. The picture I made for the project is attached.

Answer: 
Absolutely. One of the main purposes of this product is to eliminate brush marks. I've used it on crown molding with a brush, and the final finish turned out smooth as glass. It does make the paint thinner, so it's a little more difficult to apply to vertical surfaces, but not prohibitively so.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Was skeptical, but really worked well for me I was spraying an industrial high gloss water based acrylic through an conventional HVLP set up. Experience with solvent based enamels, acrylics and urethanes, but water based had a learning curve. The paint dried so fast, it seemed like a dry fall product. mixed this at 12:1 and had better, flow with no runs, and better gloss. I want to spray the water based on equipment and trailers, to avoid continued exposure to catalyst and reducers. We will see how it holds up. April 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I always use this when painting I have used this for 20+ years. I have never used a sprayer. I just add it to my can of paint and start rolling or brushing. It always comes out "wonderful" even my outside doors look great with out the brush marks because the paint dries slower so the brush marks do not show. I use it with all my painting projects because I know it will be so much easier and turn out great!! May 6, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Smooth Finish But Don't Use With Paint Sprayer The Good: Floetrol helps paint produce a smooth glass finish with a brush. The Bad: The corn syrup-like consistency of Floetrol increased the viscosity of the filtered Sherwin-Williams paint that I used. This factor made the paint far more difficult to spray until I significantly diluted the paint with water. I will never use Floetrol again with my 1 HP Campbell Hausfeld paint sprayer. Paint sprayers generally produce a smooth finish and don't need Floetrol. March 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by What did I do wrong??? I added 2 oz. of Floetrol to 1 qt. Valspar Semi-Gloss Latex Paint. After priming my dining table, waiting 24 hours to allow ample time for primer to dry, I applied the paint/Floetrol mixture with a brush. Every brush stroke showed; paint did not cover well; plus that was 7 days ago, and the paint is still tacky. I'm sure I will have to apply at least 2 more coats to smooth the color, so this turns into a month long project (IF it ever gets dry enough to apply additional coats!). What a mess! June 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Do not paint without it! Amazing product. Makes painting so much easier and faster. Brush marks are gone. Paint is creamier and feathering is a breeze. A must for older paint to make like new and new paint to make even better. May 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glad I found this product I had some nightstands to refinish and didn't want brush marks showing like my other projects. The addition of Floetrol to my paint eliminated brush marks all together. The nightstands look like they were spray painted. And this one bottle will go a long ways. It doesn't take much to make paint flow. May 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VERY GOOD PRODUCT FOR MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS. I have used this product in paint for Faux finishing. It's qualities are that it allows you to use your final color paint and easily sand through and expose the underlying accents. A professional taught this to me and it woks VERY well. It allows almost effortless fine sanding to create the faux finish you desire. It can be glazed, hand waxed or urethane over to achieve final desired look. I Have used it on several different types of applications but the most commented on was banisters that i stained, used flowtrol in Ralph Lauren black paint, sanded lightly to expose stain and hand waxed. Been standing 6 years without a flaw. TRY IT, you will see... Dave August 14, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product This worked great for spraying latex paint on crown molding in my airless sprayer. Thinned it enough that I didn't have any clogs. It was a cheap sprayer, so the paint went on pretty unevenly - no fault of the Floetrol. A quick once-over with a quality brush settled the lumps enough that the Floetrol took care of everything else. By the time I was done, the molding was as smooth as glass. I definitely wouldn't have gotten such a quality finish without the Floetrol! Plus, there was no noticeable difference in color at all. July 10, 2014
