Rh, Dewpoint, & Temperature

During painting, environment is important factor, it is essential to avoid condensation forming during the application and drying stage. Surface preparation and the application of coatings and linings should be performed under optimum environmental conditions to help prevent failures. Important parameters are Air temperature, Surface temperature, Relative humidity (RH), and Dew point temperature. Details are available in ASTM D3276 and ASTM E337 standard.
