Poor Paint Flow and Leveling

Poor Paint Flow and Leveling


Flow and leveling problems occur when the paint does not have the proper rheology to form a single, uniform film before drying.


  • Use of low quality paint that does not spread well
  • Attempting to repaint a surface that has only partially dried
  • Using an inappropriate roller or brush


  • Use the appropriate tools.
  • Do not apply the paint in conditions of low humidity and high temperature.
  • Do not apply a second coat before the first coat is dry.
  • Do not attempt to make spot corrections when the paint has begun to dry.

Spreading and leveling problems are almost impossible to encounter when using ER-LAC paints, as their special composition ensures that the paint layers and spreads perfectly.
