TROUBLE WITH PAINT. ADHESIVE AND COHESIVE FAILURE: DEFINITIONS AND FUNDAMENTAL MACRO-EFFECTS

In a perfect world, aging paint film would erode slowly and steadily in a predictable fashion. Other degradation would be regarded as paint failure. Similarly, in this article, any delamination, lateral splitting, cracking, checking, bubbling, or blistering is considered a failure, as these manifestations of distress may indicate that a more appropriate choice may have been warranted. This article considers the problems of adhesive and cohesive paint film degradation. Forces that maintain and forces that strain coating systems are revealed. Measuring stress and strain to prevent adhesive and cohesive paint failures is given little attention in the literature but must be addressed in order to reduce the number of misapplications in the field.
