Paint Fading – Causes
There are various types of industrial paint. But typically, all these paints work in the same system: 1st coat is the primer, 2nd coat is the intermediate coat, and the 3rd coat is the top coat. The primer has anti-corrosive pigments that helps prevent corrosion and promotes surface adhesion for next layer of paint. A layer of intermediate coat helps to increase the thickness of the paint without applying a very thick finishing coat. Intermediate coat is optional in industrial painting, because of the large surface area. Finishing coats, can be matte or glossy, and are important for increasing the aesthetic value of the product.
