In this presentation a brief review of different types of coatings defects will be presented. Utilization of different types of microscopy analyses to investigate these defects will be discussed. A few examples will be shared where microscopy analyses were able to identify the root cause of the defects. PPG’s commitment is to deliver best in class coatings, with the goal to protect and beautify the world.
