The enamels based on melamine-formaldehyde resins and short-oil alkyd resins deteriorate in time (around 1 month) as the drying and hardness are concerned. This happens especially during cold season (winter time)
What do you think could cause this?

There may be 2 ways to deal with the problem you describe:
1. The correct MF resin,in terms of reactivity and compatibility, should be selected.
2.Take care to avoid a premature reaction between the MF resin and the short oil alkyd, catalyzed by the acidity od the alkyd. This means that a low acid No. alkyd should be selected and a neutralizing amine should be added to the formulation along with a small amount of butanol.
