A milky gray cloud appears on the surface of the paint film immediately or shortly after application.
When spraying during humid conditions, air from the spray gun and solvent evaporation lowers the substrate temperature below the dew point, causing moisture in the air to condense in or on the paint film. The condition is aggravated when too fast drying or unbalanced thinner/reducer is used.
Should blushing occur during application:
If the finish has dried, minor blushing may be corrected by compounding or polishing, how ever, severe blushing will require sanding and refinishing.
