ADHESION PROBLEMS OF THE CLEAR COAT

Causes:         
    – Excessive coat thickness of the basecoat.
    – Intermediate and final flash off times of the basecoat are too short.
    – Delay between the final coat of the basecoat and the 1st coat of the clear coat.
    – Wrong mixing ratio of clear coat/hardener.
    – Basecoat surface is contaminated (finger marks, sweat, dust, etc.).

 

Preventive measures:
    – Do not exceed 3 spray passes of basecoat.
    – Observe intermediate and final flash off times.
    – Do not wait too long after spraying the final coat of basecoat.
