What are the benefits of using Flow Additive?
Flow Additive is a water-based paint additive that can be used to improve the flow and transparency of paints. The product has an oil base and is not soluble in most water systems. It is not a solvent and does not contain any volatile solvents or other harsh chemicals.
Flow Additive was created by the Swedish company Isofan, which was looking for a way to increase the flow of its pigments. The product offers many benefits, including:
- Better flow – Flow Additive reduces surface friction so the paint can flow more freely and easily through tubes or pipes. Even as you’re painting, the additives allow you to paint faster by enabling you to paint at higher speeds without worrying about brush strokes sticking together.
- Greater transparency – When using Flow Additive, it’s easy to see the color on your workpiece more clearly and make more accurate choices about how many colors you need for the job (the amount of water absorbed into the pigment). Flow Additive also ensures that all colors in your palette are fully saturated, which makes it easier to make accurate choices about your desired color from a color wheel.
- Lesser brush strokes – Using Flow Additive helps reduce brush strokes and makes painting easier with fewer strokes per line – because less paint gets on your workpiece due to reduced friction. This means you can use fewer tools and apply more pressure with each stroke, which results in smoother results.
- Lesser brush head wears – Because fewer brushes are needed when using Flow Additive it’s easier for artists working long days at work or on-site due to fewer brushes being used per line while working with multiple colors or multiple media types (airbrush or inkjet printers). However, this product may occasionally require cleaning brushes due to deposits from dried adhesives that may clog up brushes if not cleaned regularly. If this happens make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions regarding cleaning maintenance procedures when using this product; overcleaning can cause damage that cannot be repaired!
