Questions & Answers

Can I use Floetrol with Sherman Williams Infinity 100% Acrylic interior semi-gloss?

I want to paint a fiberglass door.
Asked by: jim
Related to painting fiberglass doors. I recently purchased one from a local supplier and asked about how to paint the door. Number one recommendation, he said it's what his company uses, is Glidden Gripper primer. Not sure what or why it's different from others but I have used it several times with good success. Also i was told to use a 'latex' (not alkyd) paint. Only thing I do not like with that is spraying latex. Next time I will try one of these flow enhancers.

What mixture ratio of Floetrol do I use with a pint of latex paint for a brush-on application?

Asked by: BobJohn4627
you don't need to add any floetrol to latex paint for brush on application. it should be used at can consistency.

Can this be used mixed with acrylic paints and silicone and blow torched as is done with a dirty pour painting technique

Asked by: Curious
Yes! If you go to YouTube and look up annemarie ridderhof, she does some beautiful pours and highly recommends this product. I just finished another one of her videos and will be going to my nearby Home Depot to purchase this. Happy painting!

Floetrol 1-qt. Clear Latex Paint Additive is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very helpful Just adding this product to any paint make the job easier and looking good
Date published: 2014-10-04
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't do anything I tried this in SW Superpaint flat wall paint because in an air-conditioned space, the paint was not flowing out as well as I thought it should, and it was drying too quickly. This additive didn't improve the paint at all. It is very thick and gummy. Thinning a bit with plain water worked better. Perhaps some other brand would work better, but this did not work for me. Glad I bought only a quart; waste of money.
