How a Liquid Nylon Coating Can Help Create an Impervious, Pinhole-Free Coating Barrier

The main purpose of a coating is to protect against corrosion. However, corrosion can quickly arise if defects such as pinholes develop while the coating is applied. The best coatings reduce or eliminate the occurrence of pinholes for the most challenging use cases.

What are Pinholes?

Pinholes are a defect in the coating that appear as little holes or voids on the surface of the coating. They are created when air bubbles rise to the surface of the coating and burst while the coating is drying. A pinhole is one of several kinds of holidays, which also include cracks and an insufficient or excessive coating film thickness.

Why Pinholes are Undesirable?

The presence of pinholes indicates a quality issue. Pinholes provide a path of exposure to the metal substrate and can leave the metal vulnerable to corrosion, thus preventing the coating from achieving its purpose of protection. Pinholes also provide a path for the unwanted conduction of electricity from one part to another part in an assembly.

Pinholes negatively impact the adhesion between the metal and the coating. Failure to bond to a substrate defeats the purpose of any coating. As a result the coating will often end up peeling over time. The reduction of adhesive strength creates a weak point in any coating, so the coating’s lifetime is much shorter. Depending upon the conditions of application and environment, temperature, and so on, a coating that is intended to last three years may only last three months.
