Regular problem sagging Definition

Downward “drooping” movement of the paint film immediately after application, resulting in an uneven coating.

Causes

  • Applying too much paint per coat
  • Painting under cool, humid conditions
  • Over-thinning the paint
  • Applying paint over a glossy surface that doesn’t provide sufficient “tooth” for the paint to bond
  • Airless spraying with the gun too close to the surface being painted
Solutions
  • If the paint is still wet, immediately brush out or re-roll to even out the paint film.
  • If the paint has dried, sand and re-apply a new coat of paint.
  • Correct any unfavorable conditions: Do not thin the paint, avoid painting under cool or humid conditions, sand glossy surfaces.
