Prolonged exposure of a coating to UV light, can cause the coating paint to harden and become brittle. This limits the coatings ability to expand and contract with the substrate, negativity affecting its adhesive qualities and resulting in delamination.
Moisture that lies on the coatings surface can then penetrate causing delamination. Overtime this can result in a lifting of the coating, and corrosion in the cases of steel substrates.
Chalking is a naturally occurring process over time, where the paint fades away. However this process can result in the loss of important, additional pigments such as those added to enhance colour or offer UV stability.
Sign of coating failure can be observed as soon as the coating's colour begins to fade, erase, delaminate or, in the case of smooth finished coatings, to blister and spot corrode
In most cases cladding panels can be treated, contingent on the damage not being overly extensive, preserving indefinitely its protective qualities. Our on site operatives will be able to identify all problem areas and will prepare repair, fully cleanse, colour match, and apply protective coating with one of the spraying application methods we provide.
