Financial loss is incurred every year as a result of premature failure of paints and coatings.
The expenditure to repair such failures far exceeds the initial cost of preparation and painting, since access to the failing areas may be limited and often requires additional work platforms to safely remediate the coating failure. Additional liability may also be expected if a facility must stop operation for the necessary repairs to be made.
Coating failures can occur for numerous reasons, although they are typically as a result of poor application, a defective coating, or an inadequate specification. An analysis of the fundamental causes behind coating failures is critical. Not only does this help in assigning financial responsibility, but knowing how a coating has failed is often the first step in planning how to take remedial action.
