The whitish, cloudlike haze that occurs in fast-drying finishes, especially lacquer, when they are sprayed in very humid conditions. Blushing is most often due to moisture (water vapor) trapped in the film or to bits of resin precipitating out of solution.
A greyish haze that forms in the finish due to entrapped moisture. A common occurrence when lacquers are sprayed under high humidity conditions. The finish dries too quickly, leaving the moisture entrapped.
Blushing is a term usually applied to lacquers when they become partially opaque, cloudy, or translucent upon application or drying. The main cause of this difficulty is a result of condensed moisture during the drying period.
This is a white deposit appearing on the surface of lacquer films only. The defect is caused by painting with lacquers in high humidity conditions where the water contained in the air condenses on the paint film The remedy is not to paint in humid conditions or to add a strong, active solvent that may stop the blushing.
A film defect which manifests itself as a milky appearance which is generally caused by rapid solvent evaporation or the reaction of the amine component of the coating to the presence of excessive moisture during the curing process. Also, “Amine Blush.” Common in some epoxy systems.
The formation of a white or grayish cast in a spirit varnish,shellac or lacquer film during the drying period. It is caused by the partial or total precipitation of the solid ingredient as a result of condensed moisture in the film.This may be caused by excessive humidity or by use of an improper solvent.
A color change phenomenon that occasionally takes place, most often during drying of a newly applied finish. It is an unusual, temporary color that a semi-transparent finish may take on while it is drying. Some finishes may also blush when they become water saturated.
A milky opalescence which sometimes develops as a film of ink dries and is due to the deposition of moisture from the air and/or precipitation of one or more of the solid constituents of the ink; usually confined to inks which dry solely by solvent evaporation.
To blush is to display a marked redness of one's face; the term is seldom applied except when the redness is construed as a result of embarrassment, shame, or modesty. Blushing is generally distinguished, despite a close physiological relation, from flushing, which is more intensive and extends over more of the body, and seldom has a mental source.
For a young woman to dream of blushing, denotes she will be worried and humiliated by false accusations. If she sees others blush, she will be given to flippant raillery which will make her unpleasing to her friends.
