Like Watching Paint Dry?

Many people use the term 'like watching paint dry' to describe dullest and most boring events in life. However, those who really know paint will tell you that the drying and curing process is both complex and fascinating, and even today is still not fully understood. And of course there are many reasons why paint sometimes doesn't dry properly, such as solvent entrapment, undercure and excessive thickness. Then there are cosmetic defects such as dust inclusions, dull gloss, blooming, cissing, orange peel, and so the list goes on.

To help resolve such problems we offer a comprehensive technical consultancy service to Boatyards, Shipyards, Surveyors, Boat Owners and Insurers, and will gladly examine any size of vessel from dingy to superyacht. Please click on the Services link for more information.
