Troubleshooting

DULL FINISH

The trait of not being glossy, ie low gloss, flat appearance.
PROBLEM SOLUTION TO PROBLEM AVOIDING PROBLEM
RECOATING TOO FAST - The application of the second coat before the proper recoat time can diminish the gloss of the subsequent coat. Lightly roughen the coating and then apply another top coat to restore the proper gloss to the surface. Be certain the preceding coat has sufficiently dried. Press your thumb into the coating, and if no mark is left then it is safe to recoat.
POOR VENTILATION - If proper ventilation is not provided, then solvent may become trapped in the coating and affect gloss. Lightly roughen the coating and apply another top coat to restore the proper gloss to the surface. As soon as the product becomes tack free, provide exhaust ventilation to remove solvent vapors from the area of the coating.
