Xylene Metal Paint Thinner 500ml is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Poor Packaging Thinners work great cleaned brushes up a treat. The picture shown of the product in the catalogue bears no resemblance to the purchased item. The tin that is shown depicts a robust metal screw on lid but what you get in reality is a plastic pop up cap which ripped off the first time that I used it and consequently I am now storing the remainder in a glass jar with a metal lid. In summary, product great but container rubbish!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No instructions as to how to open the can safely The can does not have a metal cap as per the picture, but a red plastic plug in the top. It is not obvious how it should be removed and there are no instructions on the can. I levered out the plug with a screwdriver to expose a plastic finger pull seal. On dispensing somethinners, to reseal the can it appears you push back in what is a poor fitting red plastic cap. You would be unable to seal the can at all if the red plug was damaged on opening. Not very clever at all. I would welcome your comments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Paint Thinner I have been hunting around for a good paint thinner since my usual go to brand no longer gets shipping into the UK from Germany and find White Spirits too weak and no good for expensive high grade paint brushes, I found this and gave it a try and its fantastic, its nearly as good as my German one I used to us. The tin is a little small for the price but the quality of the thinner is perfect. I have also used it on iron bars on my sons windows to strip away the old paint and rust and it worked great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solvent Some paints will not clean up with white spirit and these typically require Xylene, this is reasonably priced and comes in a nice metal can. If you need Xylene this is the way to buy it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ineffective Seal The picture is quite clear, there is a proper seal. The truth is, the actual cheap plastic seal is not fit for purpose bearing in mind the contents.
