Settling or Precipitation
When components settle down and harden, the defect is termed as Settling or Precipitation.
|Using Wrong Thinners||
• If the settling seems moderate, add proper solvent and agitate continuously, till resolution.
• If need be, use stronger solvents.
|Paint too Cold||Warm the paint till its temperature reaches 20 – 30° C.|
|Over-reduction||Add more fresh paint to get the right consistency.|
|Quick Addition of Reducer or Catalyst without sufficient Stirring||Add the Reducer or Catalyst slowly and stir constantly.|
|Settling of Pigment or Flattening Agent at the bottom||
• Check the bottom of the paint container with a spatula.
• Stir paint thoroughly before use.
