The article provides tips on how to deal with various defects of spray applied coatings. These include sags, craters and orange peel which are caused by low viscosity, incompatible contaminants and improper coating flow. It mentions that they can be avoided through the application of a thermal slump modifier, tail solvent and pseudo-plastic thickener. It also mentions the significance of understanding their characteristics as well as the correction of formula for coatings.
