Dry Spray

Appearance

A rough, mottled surface, similar to orange peel.

Probable Causes

The coating is losing too much solvent or water as it is propelled toward the surface by the spray gun.

Suggested Solutions

  1. Move the spray gun closer to the surface; reduce the velocity of the spray; or increase the ratio of coating to air in the spray.
  2. Change to a solvent that dries more slowly.
