PROBLEM SOLVER – BURNISHING
Burnishing results in an increase in gloss or sheen of paint film when subjected to rubbing, scrubbing or having an object brush up against it.
- Use of flat paint in highly trafficked areas, where a higher sheen level would be desirable.
- Frequent washing and spot cleaning.
- Objects (furniture, for example) rubbing against the walls.
- Use of lower grades of paint with poor stain and scrub resistance (see Poor Stain Resistance and Poor Scrub Resistance).
