Paint Problems


Print Resistance Failure


Print resistance failure: Marking of paint from the weight of an object such as a dish on a shelf.

Print probable causes: Not allowing enough time for the paint to properly dry and cure. Applying the finish coat before the primer has properly dried. Selecting a paint product not the best suited for shelving and cabinet use. Premature placement of excessive weighty objects on shelves.

Print resistance solutions: Allow the full curing time recommendation before putting the surface back into service. The prime coat must dry the recommended time before apply the finish coat. Apply with a uniform spread rate. Use paint products that have the best print resistance.

Primers & interior finishes: Priming is essential for better adhesion, sheen uniformity, mildew control and durability. Select a top quality interior paint in the color and sheen of your choice.
