The "orange peel" effect is one of the most common defects that happen to novice painters. The causes of its formation are mainly:

  • inadequate spray pressure
  • incorrect viscosity of the applied material
  • uneven, rough substrate
  • inadequate gun nozzle
  • too high temperature in the room

In order to prevent the "orange peel" effect on the painted part, it is necessary to remember a few basic rules when painting:

  • properly prepare the substrate
  • use the appropriate nozzle for the material applied
  • use dedicated thinner for the material applied
  • follow the recommendations for the method of application contained in the technical data sheet of the material

Removal of this defect provokes sanding and polishing of the surface or sanding and repainting of the element.
