Viscosity or Heavy-bodied
When the paint’s consistency becomes thicker, it’s termed Viscosity and since it is heavier, it’s also called Heavy-bodied.
|Evaporation of Solvent in the paint, at normal temperature that causes it to become heavy-bodied.||
• Use the same solvent, used by the manufacturer to make the paint.
• Check the viscosity manually, using a cup.
|Using Improper Solvents for Thinning||Use recommended solvents for thinning purposes.|
|Using Catalyzed materials beyond the pot life of the paint||Look for directions and see, if it’s mentioned whether the paint can be recovered by adding additional paint and catalyst.|
