Problem with thinner formulation
I am a chemical engineer. I have formulated a NC thinner which is very much suitable for wood finishing. but the problem is that it is not stable. After few days I am receiving complaints that it is sticks in the spray gun, initially it is not having problem.the following: acetone, toluene, IPA, methanol.
Awaiting your response as early as possible.Biju G. Kutty

I'd suspect the methanol as the culprit to your sticky problems. Are the spray guns cleaned before everybody goes home at the end of the night? I would think flushing the guns with a cleaning thinner, or Acetone [affil. link to info/product on Amazon] for that matter, would solve your problem.

Q. Hello sir,
I have a question about nc thinner that some whitish thing is formed in the thinner. Can you please suggest some measures to remove this thing? I think this has happened because of the moisture, but I am not sure.
Would appreciate the answers.
