Does External Gloss Not Gloss Depending When Applied ?

    I realise this may sound like an odd question, however, if external gloss paint is applied during autumn or winter seasons does it still give the same gloss finish compared to spring or summer application. I can understand the air temperature having an impact on the finish re curing times for resins etc but not anything else that would be associated with seasonal variations.

    Damp autumn/winter conditions wont help either.

    Richard,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Sure, I understand that the damp conditions will extend the drying time and that the paint should not be applied below a certain air temperature. However, if these factors are respected and the paint is applied on a day with lowish relative humidity and daytime temperatures are OK will there be any impact on the shine of the gloss?

    I suppose what I am wondering is if there is any photolytic effect coming into play where the amount of natural sun plays a role in the deepness of the gloss finish if other factors are respected.

    joe-90,

    What is your problem with my posts?

    You are repeatedly replying to my threads with your sarcastic and snide personal remarks. All I am doing is wishing to find out a bit more about certain subjects as I am a novice at DIY. I fail to understand why you wish to contribute in such a negative and condescending manner. If my questions seem foolish to you then all you need to do is ignore them rather then respond in your frivolous tones.

    Perhaps you have a drink problem and your posts are made after a liquid lunch on the sauce. There is no shame in being a plss tank joe, it's a disease, or was it the paint solvents......

    "I suppose what I am wondering is if there is any photolytic effect coming into play"

    Contact the ICI Lab mate. We don't do that sort of stuff in here.

    joe-90,

    Of course there is technical and scientific stuff discussed on the painting and decorating forum. There is mention of the impact of UV on gloss paint in another thread on the 1st page of this forum.

    You personally may not do technical or scientific stuff joe but do not presume to answer for other forum members who may wish to contribute or have some knowledge in these areas. After all, it is not your forum joe, or do you seem to think it is just because you have racked up a high post count.

    Everyone knows it's my forum. I can't wait for the scientific analysis of paint on dull days by a painter and decorator. :p

    Well joe, if you really are the owner of this forum all I can say is that your conduct is pretty poor in light of your sarcastic tones to inexperienced DIY'ers relatively new to the forum.

    On reflection, I am surprised that your ownership of the forum had not occurred to me before now. It is the only explanation as to why a plss box who has become dissenfranchised with society could get away with such rude replies to forum members.

    The application of an oil/solvent borne paint in damp or humid conditions can have a dramatic effect to both curing times and sheen levels. The new 2010 paints have made matters worse with regard to the longer curing times of these products.

    Whilst these paints are drying, the moisture within the air is condensing upon them thus resulting in lower sheen levels. With regard to uv levels all solvent borne paints will stay whiter and obtain higher sheen levels on an exterior app as opposed to an interior app.

    So in simple terms Jack avoid, applying these coatings at times subject to a high humidity factor.

    Hope this is of some help to you

    Moisture will only condense when the dew point is reached. If you have no lab to prove it - why guess? The info on the back of the tin will tell you.

    Joe if your of the belief that my advice on this thread was based on mere guesswork, then I am of the belief that you are not a P/D.

    TheDec,

    Thank you for your reply, it covers all the points that I had hoped to get clarified, most appreciated. I use the BBC online weather service to get relative humidities and temperatures for my area so heres hoping for a few relatively mild autumn days.


    Regards
    Jack

    No, if respected.

    Yes, if not respected.

    Photolytically.
