    HEXALINE FINISH ON PANELS

    Whilst looking through some panel drawings, I came across a reference to a finish called Black Hexaline, and was hoping that some one may know what it is, and if there is a modern equivalent.
    My guess would be that it is some kind of textured paint finish.

    Isn't that related to creosote?

      Hexalin and Hexaline are names used for cyclohexanol. One of the uses is a solvent for alkyd resins used in synthetic paint.

        That sounds like a fun solvent to mess about with. Found another ref that mentioned mixing it with linseed oil.
