Paint cracking is when the paint coating splits and crack throughout the paint film thickness. As the image above shows, paint cracking is a series of straight lines in the mainly the topcoat. Often the primer or substrate is visible through the coating. If this is the case then it is best to follow the procedures below in solving this problem. If the problem is failed to be solved then the coating will be left weak and susceptible to failure. This can then damage the substrate and cause problems in the future.
There are quite a few probable causes of paint cracking (see below). If you can understand why the coating has failed then it will be much easier to prevent it then next time.
Unfortunately, the only way to solve paint cracking is to remove the finish and start again. This way the paint is guaranteed not to be affected by the previous poor finish
Prevention is a lot better than curing a problem so it is important to take note of the below actions. By following them the chances of your coating cracking are very slim and nobody likes to re-do a poor job so it is very important to follow the below recommendations.
