Default Floetrol or Paint Conditioner, where to buy

Need to paint my wainscoting semi gloss, want to use a paint conditioner such as Floetrol to help the paint level and not leave brush/roller marks

Is this no longer available in Canada?

is there a competitive product, or alternative someone has used and can suggest? experiences?

thank you

i see that

it says:

It's a paint conditioner designed to be used with airless spray equipment much like Floetrol. Shake well before using. Use only with water-borne and latex paints: Acrylics, Enamels, Sealers, and Primers. Add, approximately 4 ounces of paint Easy to each quart of paint while stirring or boxing. Mix thoroughly.

will this do what floetrol does? i'm just using rollers and brushes, does this matter?
