Default High humidity

2 coats of duration in 1 day and next day rain equals bubbles in paint from not curing. Solution sherwin williams says dont due 2 coats in 1 day takes time to cure and check with moisture meter before applying .Thanks Rain!!!!!!!.

Always get PRODUCT DATA Sheets for all your paints. This is where your application information will be at. Not on the bucket.

it is just due to the rain. Since paint dries from the outside to the inside the outside allowed the rain to come through and settle on the inside.. leave the bubbles alone.. LEAVE THE BUBBLES ALONE! When the sun comes out it will draw the moisture back to the outside and the bubbles will adhere to the surface once again. Don't worry about it, it isn't just Duration, and it isn't your coverage. It is that the paint is still not cured and really it won't be for some time.

My SW rep has told me that some times the bubbles or blisters will cure back down to the pervious coating but I just have this affliction towards re-adhering paint. Doesn't seem like the best in the long run.

Try convincing a HO that the bubbles will go down, cure and that it wont come back.

They should go down with no problem. You may want to amend your contract with the HO something along the lines of; "paint failure will be warrantied at no charge to customer.", or something like that.

I've started using SW Resilience, after the SW Rep comped me a 5 to try. Fast drying stuff though so you may want to try it out on a cooler day.

We coated some seating in an arena last week with oil semi-gloss and it all went flat on us because of the humidity . It had been so long since something like that happened on us I completely forgot about the humidity factor . It was not too bad because most of it can be rerolled in a few hours with another coat of semi . If that's the only bad thing that happens to us on this project we will be ok !

we had the same problem with bubbles but i doubt humidity has something to do with it, i monitored everytime the rooms humidity and temperature and making sure it never reaches 70%RH and is on 22-25C and still i got these pesky bubbles all over the colorbond of my nickel-chrome surface, i tried degassing on a vacuum chamber and mixed the ink in the can using a pneumatic hand mixer..and still got the same problem... . anyone could shed light to this problem is greatly appreciated

Slingah, you can say 'hell' here, heck even on prime time TV, one can utter 'fart', and the censors have no problem with 'crap'.

But, NEVER, no more, can the name ******** be mentioned

Its been rainy and humid here in ND as well. I used some BM oil deep color base fresh start on a bunch of windows, a full coat on each. Well it took about 3 days for it to harden up. Crazy stupid weather. Or it could of been all that tint in it, at least it could be partially to blame. Or it could be the old ditzy lady that mixed and tinted it for me, I hate it when she takes my order, always something messed up and takes twice as long. But the primer smells good, makes my troubles go away...

They probably will go back down but will return everytime humidity is up or if it rains. We use to see this with tilt ups. If the paint dries while bubbled out when it goes back down it cannot stick. So the only thing holding it on the wall is the elasticity of the paint. It could now be a delamination problem. The sure fix is cut them out, prime it, patch the edges, repaint.... Or it may just not be cured out yet!!! right
