Low hiding power

 

Low hiding power

Causes

  1. Some colours contain organic pigments with lower hiding power.
  2. Paint improperly shaken.
  3. Over thinning.
  4. Poor levelling and uneven spreading.
  5. Use of low quality tools.
  6. Paint absorption by an absorbing base.
  7. Low quality product.
  8. Application temperature was too high, which caused poor product levelling.

Solutions

  1. Apply an additional coat or an appropriate base coat. For darker colours with low hiding power, apply GoPrime 150-135 or 160-135 depending on the icon on the colour chip.
  2. Mix paint with a stirring stick down to the bottom of the container.
  3. Do not dilute paint since it is formulated to be applied as is.
  4. Apply paint uniformly and maintain the product’s spreading rate.
  5. Use high quality tools. They make work easier and give better results.
  6. Apply appropriate base coat.
  7. Use better quality product.
  8. Comply with the product’s application temperature.
