AbstractThe failure of exterior paints on wartime houses under the control of the Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation has presented a serious maintenance problem for several years. Blistering and peeling of the paint has taken place within one year after its application. This has occurred on houses of new construction and also on older houses that have been painted a second and third time. The failure of the paint is not localized but rather it is country-wide. Some locations are worse than others but this is also true for adjacent houses, the paint on one deteriorating soon and to a greater extent than the pain on the house next to it.
