What thinner to use with red oxide?

Found 5th Jun 2015
Hello,

I'm looking for some advice here as I'm new to spraying. I've been recommend using red oxide paint for a mower deck.

Now I have a compressor and an air gun, do I need to thin the oxide red and what could I use? I hear I can thin it upto 10%.

Any advice would be great. I'm looking at getting this: screwfix.com/p/n…712

Thanks.

So far I've been recommend these, are they any good?

White spirit, acetone, xylene or synthetic reducer.
Have a look at the ingredients on the tin, there should be something spirit based included. Add more of that. You can't just chuck anything in, you'll make one hell of a mess.
I sprayed my trailer [base coat] with the red oxide bought from Screwfix and used just plain old ............white spirit to thin it down .
I would only use Thinners for the likes of cellulose paint .

Thanks for your reply.

We actually purchased the No Nonsense one from Screwfix yesterday and it sprayed on fine with no thinner.
