What is Sagging Paint?


What is Sagging Paint?


01-Aug-2016


Sagging is the vertical flow of paint that leaves marks over the walls. It is the drooping movement of the paint that occurs immediately after the application of a coat of paint.

                                              

 

Sagging may occur due to any of the following reasons:

  • Thick coat of paint applied at a time. Thick coat of paint becomes heavy and do not affix with the wall and as a result leave marks over the walls.
  • Painting in humid or cold temperature. If you are planning to have a paint job, do not go for a humid or a cold weather.  It may lead to sagging or running paint.
  • Uneven application of paint is also one of the reasons that may lead to sagging.
  •  If one applies a paint layer to the semi-dry painted region, chances are that it may form sags over the walls.

The forestallment for sagging may include the following:

                                 

  • Even application of paint. Paint must be evenly applied and one must make sure that the paint is rolled up in the full height so that it will not lead to joints thus creating sagging or running.
  • Always remember that you have to maintain a “wet edge” in your paint job. Do not let your paint be partly dry before you roll up the paint over it. You need to apply paint from wet to dry area and this will help you to have an even look in your paint job.
  • Thin paint ensures evenness in the paint job. While thinning your paint, you must make sure that the paint passes the funnel test and if it is still thick you need to add on water until it becomes perfectly thin to be applied over the walls. You need to apply the paint in a small area first to ensure that it has already been prepared well to be used for the paint job.
  • If the wall is already damaged due to sagging, one must wait for the paint coat to dry completely and then cover the area with a fresh even coating.
