Also known as 'flashing', poor sheen uniformity can be identified as shiny or dull spots on a painted surface that can lead to an uneven gloss.

Yellowing

Yellowing is the development of a yellow cast in aging solvent-based enamels. It's most noticeable in the dried films of white paints or clear varnishes.

Wrinkling

Wrinkling in paintwork can be identified by a rough, crinkled paint surface, which occurs when uncured paint forms a 'skin'.

Tannin staining

Tannin staining is the brownish or tan discoloration on a painted surface due to migration of tannins from the substrate through the paint film.
