  • Too high viscosity of application.
  • Incorrect adjustment of the spray gun, excessive fl owrate of the paint and low atomization pressure.
  • Solvents evaporating too quickly.
  • Base layers insuffi ciently dry.
  • Too much product used when spraying or incorrect position when applying the paint, ie too close.
  • Insufficient preparation or sanding of the previous coats.


  • Reduce the viscosity and increase the dilution rate.
  • Properly adjust and regulate the spray equipment (pressure, flow and geometry of spray pattern).
  • Use alternative solvents according to the temperature or environmental conditions.
  • Leave the previous coats to dry properly.
  • Adjust the ratio between the flowrate and speed of the application with the correct distance of application.
