AbstractThis study was undertaken to simulate in the laboratory premature cracking and flaking of exterior oil house paint on wood as they occur in practice in order to support a proposed mechanism of breakdown. Samples of primer and finish paints identical to those that had failed in the field and laboratory paints of similar composition were applied on wood and subjected to three different wetting-and- radiation-drying cycles. Cracking and flaking induced by Cycle I closely resembled those in the field. This supports the view that the main cause of the field failure was the repeated influx of rain water through the paint film.
