HAND SPRAY TROUBLESHOOTING
Problem:
Sags or runs
Description:
Tears or curtains of paint on vertical or inclined lines
Investigate:
-
Problem:
Dry Spray
Description:
Rough, irregular orientation of the painted surface
Investigate:
-
Problem:
Telegraphing
Description:
Unseen marks or patterns that show through after the application of
additional coats of paint
Investigate:
-
Film build may be high
Fluid delivery may be too high
Slow evaporation rate of paint, solvent, or reducer
Insufficient flash time
Gun distance too close
Low booth temperature
Low atomizing air pressure
Gun distance too far from surface
Evaporation rate or reducer too fast
Air atomizing pressure too high
Booth temperature too high
Booth air velocity too high
Low film build
Contamination; hand prints etc on the surface prior to painting
Clean up solvent may be contaminated
Other contaminants such as conveyor lubricants, hand creams, etc
1
Problem:
Solvent Pop
Description:
Small bumps in the paint film which, under close examination, have small
holes in the top. This condition is more likely to occur on edges or areas
where film build is the heaviest. The surface skins over, trapping solvent
underneath.
Investigate:
-
Problem:
Soft Paint
Description:
Easy to mar or penetrate film with fingernail
Investigate:
-
Problem:
Off color
Description:
Does not match master control panel
Investigate:
-
Change to slower evaporating solvent
Applying lower film thickness with more flash between coats
First stage oven temperature is too high
Reducing fluid delivery
Reducing viscosity
Oven temperature too low - under baked
Film thickness may be too high
Two part – catalyst level may be low
Poor spray technique
Mottling, wet or dry spray
Settling, poor agitation of drum
Low film build causing transparency
Hiding power of paint
Over bake
Insufficient turnover of supply material
Contamination of lines and equipment by previous color
Application difference between coats, booths, painters
2
Problem:
Mottling
Description:
Non-uniform, blotchy appearance of metallic paint. Aluminum
Particles gather together rather than maintaining even distribution.
Investigate:
-
Problem:
Cratering
Description:
Small rounded indentations, normally evenly spread over the affected
area. Larger craters may have slightly raised edges.
Investigate:
-
Gun distance may be too close
Reducing solvent may be too slow evaporating
Atomizing air pressure may be too low
Fluid delivery may be too high
Fan width may be too narrow
Spray viscosity is too high or too low
Uniformity or overlap of final coat is lacking
Temperature of paint may be too low
Booth temperature may be too low
High voltage problems causing metallic to stand up or lay
down together
Over spray falling from proceeding of following job that is incompatible
Paint contamination by oil, silicone, etc.
Surface contamination may come through
Booth not under positive pressure – contaminants being drawn in
Oil in air lines
Contaminants brought in on clothing
Unbalanced spray booth that accentuates incompatibility problems
