Definition - What does Cheesiness mean?
Cheesiness is a visible coating defect that occurs due to improper coating application on a metal surface intended to prevent corrosion. Cheesiness is characterized by moisture retention of the coating after a prolonged drying period.
Corrosionpedia explains Cheesiness
Cheesiness typically occurs due to an inadequate chemical composition or mixing of paint components (especially two-part systems), a too low drying temperature, excessive solvent retention or a combination of these factors.
Cheesiness may be prevented by carefully evaluating the chemical composition of all paint components and understanding how they react to a given fixed curing temperature.
In the event of cheesiness, the soft coating must be removed and the surface properly prepared.
