Why an Epoxy or Acrylic will not bond or will blister
Here are ten reasons that an epoxy or acrylic will not bond or will blister after being applied on a pool restoration or resurfacing project. These come from the Newlander Testing Facility in Florida. The you can see the full certified testing facility document in the pool coating failure pdf when you click the picture. Using our Ultraguard product and our high bond strength coating will eliminate these potential issues for pool coating failure.
Pool Coating Failure Reason #1
Substrate is too smooth and cannot attain the initial mechanical bond needed to create the chemical bond.
Pool Coating Failure Reason #2
Substrate has a silicone, rubber, paint or acrylic surface
Pool Coating Failure Reason #3
Surface is too cold or too hot to adhere properly
Pool Coating Failure Reason #4
Surface is blushing or filming prior to application
Pool Coating Failure Reason #5
Material is opposite comparison
Pool Coating Failure Reason #6
Moisture has penetrated during curing process
Pool Coating Failure Reason #7
Substrate penetrated by air, water or minerals (A.K.A. Hydration)
Pool Coating Failure Reason #8
Material Cured during application process (too fast)
Pool Coating Failure Reason #9
Moisture during application (rain, water in buckets, or heavy dew at application)
Pool Coating Failure Reason #10
Material was diluted with a solvent (this cost cutting measure destroys pool coatings)
MATERIAL MUST DRY FOR 48 HOURS BEFORE FILLING POOL
