Paint Failure can be caused by many reasons like Poor workmanship, lack of adhesion and incorrect type of paint. Due to this various like blistering and chalking of paints take place. In this blog we will be discussing about various versions of Paint Failure and it’s easy to do home remedies.
Blistering Of Paints
Blistering of paint is due to moisture which forces up the paint film into little bubbles and is a major paint failure. A rapid rise in temperature will cause the vapours to expand and produce blisters.
Paint Hack– Make sure the surface is clean and dry. Apply primer before painting and make sure to not paint the walls in hot temperature.
Bleeding Of Paints
Bleeding is the staining or seeping through of a soluble dye from the substrate through the top coat color.
Paint Hack– Before painting ensure all contamination, especially bitumen and tar deposits to be thoroughly removed. You can carry out a solvent test to check if a soluble dye exists.
Chalking Of Paint
Chalking is the powdering of the surface paint due to external exposure and lack of paint binder. It is caused by choice of the wrong hardener, poor aftercare of paint work, color coats applied too thick.
Paint Hack– To avoid chalking of paints, always use recommended hardener and mixing ratio. You should also make sure to do regular paintwork maintenance.
Flaking Of Paint
Paint flaking happen when the paint has inadequate adhesion and flexibility. Cracking and flaking can also result when paint is applied too thinly. Inadequate surface preparation can also cause these failures. Flaking happens because of high moisture content inside the house, especially in the bathroom.
