Film Faults & Rectifications

The most experienced spray painter can be confronted with a variety of problems during the application and drying of paint materials.

All processes should be followed carefully and correctly, in accordance with Protec specifications to produce a finish that is satisfactory to the customer.

Paint systems are becoming more complex with the introduction of high solid and waterborne technology while customers are becoming more critical with regards to paint faults and defects.

The description of faults and defects are often unclear and that there is no similarity.

This is due to lack of a clear standard for the description of faults and defects, but also a lack of knowledge.

This in turn produces an increase of warranty costs due to repairs that are carried out unnecessarily: i.e. the repair method used is often too extensive and too expensive.

By understanding how paint film faults are caused you may be able to prevent them from happening.
