Excess thickness in coatings can lead to coating failures and have consequences such as:

  • Solvent retention.
  • Bubbles.
  • Dryness and curing problems.
  • Stress and brittleness.
  • Cracking.
  • Wrinkling.
  • Extra cost.
  • Delays in project planning.
  • Visual defects.

Sometimes in industrial projects, excess thickness is not considered and the risk that involves is ignored. Depending on the type of coating, the environment to which the structure will be exposed, and the durability expected, excess of thickness can have serious consequences on a coating protection project.
