Crater-forming

Where lacquers meet on surfaces with slight impurities due to wax, fats or other release agents, the lacquer comes away from these places and dries with craters, which requires thorough sanding-down and re-coating of the surfaces. This is particularly noticeable with unsaturated polyester lacquers. In part, this is also due to the lacquer entering pores or grooves
