Mother, Grandma, Sister, Friend, Soul Mate...
On Tuesday June 24th we lost all of that and more in our dear Marilyn Stuart.  Our hearts go out to the family, friends and loved ones as they work through a difficult time. 

Please join us in a luncheon to celebrate the Life of Marilyn Stuart on Friday, July 25 at 2:00pm at La Perla Cafe (5912 W Glendale Ave, Glendale, Arizona 85301). This was a favorite restaurant of hers. It is a time to get together and remember as opposed to mourn.

One of the new resources available is "Paint Failures."

  

PAINT FAILURES

There are many different types of coatings failures which can be attributable to many different factors. Often they are dependent upon both the coating used and the substrate or surface to which it is applied. Take the guesswork out of fixing these mistakes, and visit "Paint Failures" for solutions to these common problems. As a preview, here is one example of how the page works:

  

Interior Drywall - Adhesion Failure to the Substrate  

When interior paint peels directly from the drywall surface, then adhesion failure from the substrate has occurred. Since drywall is relatively porous, a lack of mechanical adhesion is usually not the cause of delamination. Surface contaminants such as dust, oils, dirt, etc. can cause adhesion failure to the substrate. 

 

Water intrusion is another potential cause of adhesion failure to the drywall. When the applied coating has limited permeability, water vapor can cause stress on the coating and when the stress exceeds the adhesive bond, peeling occurs. The moisture can also cause the joint compound to re-emulsify resulting in paint delamination.

As more and more paint coats are applied to a surface, the amount of weight and stress increases. If the original paint that was applied to the drywall only had marginal adhesion initially, then this additional stress can cause adhesion failure to the substrate
