I recently purchased an older home. When I removed the wallpaper, it pulled up small sections of the paper on the sheet rock. In addition, the walls have small, but numerous "dimples." Will this product level the surface, or do I need a different product?
Asked by: JustJane
Dear GFactor, Thank you so much for the complete answer to my problem. I really appreciate it. The product you recommended is not available within a100 miles of Syracuse NY, and cannot be shipped, so I will be visiting my local store to see what would be comparable. Thanks Again! JustJane

Can this be used with Behr alkyd paint in an airless paint sprayer

Asked by: Illinois
no, this is only to be used with latex or acrylic based paints. for alkyd paints use one part paint thinner to 5 parts paint.

Floetrol 1-qt. Clear Latex Paint Additive is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
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 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.

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 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!
