Causes

  1. Poor overspray absorption due to wrong choice of hardener and/or reducer for the ambient painting conditions
  2. Insufficient masking of adjacent panels/surfaces

  1. Select hardener and reducer that suit the temperature of the workshop and the size of the object/vehicle to be painted (see temperature table).
  2. Mask panels/surfaces not to be painted
  3. Recommendation for overall resprays: harmonise overlapping area with Glasurit 352-500 Spot Blender.

REPAIR

Polish with Glasurit 562-1602 Fine Polishing Compound and finish with any standard high-gloss polish.
