Default Hello all...

I'm a new CertaPro owner (last summer) and am doing my best to learn the painting business. I'm a former engineer and owner/builder in Socal. Hope to be able to help others with my experience and also share ideas about what does and doesn't work for you.

I was searching for surfactant leaching and happened upon this site. I have been in the painting field for 25+ years, union and non-union, commercial, residential, and industrial. I could do without the industrial. I have been browsing this site and it seems very informative and possibly useful in the future. People are strange, when you're a painter....

If latex-based paint is applied during cool and damp conditions, or when the temperature falls within 5 of the dew point, the drying is retarded and the surfactant ingredients come to the surface before the paint has had a chance to dry. Surfactant leaching can also be caused when dew or other moisture dries on the painted surface shortly after the paint has dried such as Bathrooms or other humid or damp interiors.
