Japan Drier

Use what professionals use to speed up drying when they need to apply several coats on the same a day — Klean-Strip® Japan Drier.  Its special blend of lead-free drying agents accelerates the drying ability of oil-based paint, oil-based enamels, varnish and polyurethane. It is especially effective in highly humid or cool weather conditions. Though Klean-Strip® Japan Drier appears purple, it will not affect the color of your coating.

   

Use just 2 to 4 ounces (1 ounce = 3 caps) per gallon of paint or varnish and mix thoroughly. Do not exceed 4 ounces per gallon. Use the minimum recommended amount in white paint since discoloration can occur at higher levels.
