Alcohol for paint solvents

Ethanol, or more specifically denatured alcohol, is used as a solvent in many paint applications. It serves as a paint thinner to reduce viscosity and improve flow and is an effective paint remover and paint stripper, helping to break down and eliminate unwanted paint layers. Its versatility as a paint solvent makes it a preferred choice in various industries.

Why ethanol in paint solvents?

Compared to other solvents such as white spirit alcohol and isopropyl alcohol (IPA), ethanol offers distinct advantages such as better availability and, sometimes, less expensive pricing. It is often utilized as a thinner for cleaning brushes and other painting tools and effectively dissolves different paint types, including oil-based, latex, and acrylic paints. The inclusion of ethanol solvent ensures optimal performance across different painting projects.
