    The case of the "Reworked Parts"

    An automotive trim manufacturer had a recurring problem with their painted TPO products. Small craters were appearing on the surface of the paint no matter how many times the part was reworked.

The plastic substrate supplier claimed that it could not be the plastic substrate and the paint supplier claimed it could not possibly be the paint that was causing the problem. Since the problem recurred in spite of reworking, it was assumed that the paint was the cause of the defects. Much time and money was spent to correct this persistent problem.

Case where lab testing was needed and analysis provided a solution.
If you look closely at the base of the defect, you can see where the problem was coming from all along. No matter how many times the part was painted the plastic substrate continued to gas-off in the same spot. It was a plastic problem after all.
