Abstract

This project investigated the causes of paint failure on aluminum cans made by Pacific Can Beijing. Hypotheses were proposed as to why paint coatings experienced failure during can production. Paint coating laboratory tests were conducted by the project team to narrow down the possible causes of paint failure. Recommendations were made to increase the performance of paint coatings and decrease the amount of cans that experience paint failure.
