Paint Check Plus > Metal > Cheesiness



A term relating to a freshly applied coating which, when dry, is mechanically weak. This can be as a result of the coating being applied too thickly, incorrect solvent used or  wax / grease on the surface which has not been removed before painting. Attention should always be given when painting doors architraves, particularly the lock side, as body fats can be deposited on the surface.


The coating should be removed and the surface thoroughly washed and flatted down with fine wet or dry carborundum paper. Solvent may be used as a lubricant and cutting agent then repaint as required.
