SW - Art DIR Wrinkling
 

DESCRIPTION

A rough, crinkled paint surface, which occurs when uncured paint forms a "skin".

POSSIBLE CAUSE

 

  • Paint applied too heavily.
     
  • Painting under extremely hot conditions or cool damp conditions, which causes the paint film to dry faster on top than on the bottom.
     
  • Exposure of uncured paint to rain, dew, fog, or high humidity levels.
     
  • Applying topcoat of paint to insufficiently cured primer or first coat of paint.
     
  • Painting over contaminated surface (e.g., dirt or wax).
  •  

SOLUTION

See Lead Information.

  • Scrape or sand to remove the wrinkled coating; sand the surface smooth to blend it in to the surrounding coating. Make sure the surface is thoroughly clean.
     
  • If needed, prime bare areas with the appropriate primer, allowing it to dry completely.
     
  • Reapply the coating following the label and data page instructions for spreading rate and environmental conditions.
