Poor Stain Resistance

Poor Stain ResistanceFailure of the paint to resist absorption of dirt and stains.

Possible Causes:

  • Use of lower quality paint that is porous in nature.

  • Application of paint to unprimed substrate.

Solution:

  • Higher quality latex paints contain more binder, which helps prevent stains from penetrating the painted surface, allowing for easy removal. Priming new surfaces provides maximum film thickness of a premium top coat, providing very good stain removability.
