Formation of air bubbles
(foaming) and resulting small, round concave depressions (cratering) when
bubbles break in a paint film during drying.
• Shaking a partially
filled can of paint.
• Use of low quality paint or very old latex paint.
• Applying/rolling paint too rapidly.
• Use of a roller cover with wrong nap length.
• Excessive rolling or brushing of the paint.
• Applying a gloss or semi-gloss paint over a porous or unsealed surface.
• Using too high of a speed when using a drill mixer.
• High heat during application speeds up drying - bubbles won't break.
All paints will foam to some
degree during application; however, higher quality paints are formulated so
the bubbles break while the paint is still wet, allowing for smooth uniform
appearance. Avoid excessive rolling or brushing of the paint or using paint
that is more than a year old. Apply gloss and semi-gloss paints with a short
nap roller. Apply an appropriate sealer or primer before using such paint
over a porous surface. Problem areas should be sanded before repainting.
