Relative Humidity and Temperature

Temperature of the coating or substrate
The coating temperature is important during application but also during storage. Most coatings will loose their performance once they have been frozen before/during their shelf life. Viscosity of paint is in direct relationship with the temperature of the paint which affects the application.

Temperature of the coating or substrate
The coating temperature is important during application but also during storage. Most coatings will loose their performance once they have been frozen before/during their shelf life. Viscosity of paint is in direct relationship with the temperature of the paint which affects the application. 

Extreme substrate temperatures also cause their share of problems. High substrate temperatures may cause the paint to dry too fast which could lead to pinholes or pores for example. Low surface temperature may prevent the paint to form a film as many coatings know a so called "Minimum Film Forming Temperature" or "MFFT" value.

Moisture in substrate
The moisture content of substrates to be coated is a critical factor as well. Fresh moist concrete will not hold any paint or applying a powder coating to a damp wooden panel will cause steam to be created when the panel passes through the curing oven, thus causing damage to the coating.
