Paint thinners & removers are volatile and flammable mineral spirits or solvents used to dilute oil-based, solvent-based, or enamel paints. Paint thinners reduce the viscosity of solvent-based paints for easy and even paint coverage. Paint thinners, along with paint removers, are used to clean up paint equipment and applicators after painting or remove dried paint from different substrates. Personal protective equipment is advised to be worn while handling paint thinners.
