Orange Peel

Orange peel:

A pebbled surface similar to that of an orange skin. Caused by coating not levelling out completely after application by spraying.

Causes:

1) Product insufficiently diluted

2) Air output from spray gun too high

3) Product drying too rapidly

Solutions:

1) Adjust viscosity of the coating

2) If viscosity is ok and problem persists, use retardant Can Lak 400-025 (for all lacquers). This will increase drying time and give coating sufficient time to spread evenly.
