|Abstract:||IF paint is applied to a blasted surface in sufficient quantity the wet film will form a plane surface (neglecting variations in thickness due to spray pattern or brush marks) and there will be a greater thickness of paint over hollows than over the peaks. This condition can be accentuated if, in addition, paint flows from peaks to hollows during the drying process. When multi-coat schemes are applied the surface profile is filled progressively by successive coats of paint (see Fig. 1); if sufficient paint is applied the dry paint/air surface may approximate to a plane. Estimates of paint requirements, albeit approximate ones, can only be properly made on the assumption that this condition will be attained.|
