It is caused by choice of the wrong hardener, poor aftercare of paint work, color coats applied too thick. To avoid chalking of paints, always use recommended hardener and mixing ratio and you should do regular paintwork maintenance.

Paint flaking happen when the paint has inadequate adhesion and flexibility. Cracking and flaking can also result when paint is applied too thinly.
