Examples of Paint Degradation * Adhesion loss * Blistering * Chalking * Cracking * Colour fade * Corrosion of substrate * Loss of gloss Several factors need to be considered when deciding the durability of an industrial coating system: * What lifetime does the user need and expect from a coating system * How much is the user willing to pay for his durability needs
