Fish eyes, cissing, silicones, poor wetting, saucering, pits, craters
Small, crater-like opening in the finish after it has been applied.
Causes / Origin
1. Improper surface cleaning or preparation. (Many waxes and polishes contain silicone, the most common cause of fish eyes. Silicones adhere firmly to the paint film and require extra effort for their removal. Even small quantities in sanding dust, rags, or from cars being polished nearby can cause this failure.)
1. Precautions should be taken to remove all traces of silicone by thoroughly cleaning.
After affected coat has set up, apply another double coat of color containing the recommended amount of Fish Eye Eliminator. In severe cases, affected areas should be sanded down and refinished.
