Cobwebbing is a common problem that occurs in the accurate application of coatings.
What visual appearance does cobwebbing take?
Cobwebbing appears as small strands of coating resin on the surface.
What probable causes are there for cobwebbing?
- Fluid coating is drying as it is sprayed before it reaches the surface to be coated
What suggested solutions can solve the problem?
- Reduce the air pressure in the delivery system to prevent premature drying
- Change to a solvent that dries more slowly
- Reduce the viscosity
Support programs, free testing facilities and application advice are often made available from coating manufacturers, helping prevent problems early in the process, saving time and money.
