Abstract

In many instances paints interlayers delamination is attributed either to environmental or to application reasons. The composition as well as the structure, including morphology are always given for granted. Extended interlayer delamination was observed on two huge structures (>50000m2 each) causing more than $10 M damages. Overcoating time, UV exposure, Solvent retention and other possible environmental possible causes were considered. However, a careful morphological analysis showed that substantial differences existed in terms of the resin to pigment ratio, the surfactants, the quality of pigments and fillers (dimensions, shape, wettability, reactivity, homogeneity of distribution…) with respect to the sample used to certify suitability of the systems to climatic conditions C4 – C5 (ISO12944). The need to avoid any either voluntary or casual modification in both PVC and the kind and size of pigments to be used should be made evident as well as shown in some paragraph of existing Standards.
