Why Does Paint Peel?

Simply put, paint peels because it cannot adhere to the underlying layer.

The simplest solution is to sand. Sandpaper roughens the base surface, creating tiny peaks and valleys onto which paint molecules can latch. Trying to paint a glassy, hard surface is like trying to walk on ice. 

Most paint-on-paint peeling comes from high humidity or surface moisture. The worst transgressor is chemical incompatibility. You can daub oil-based paints on galvanized metal all day, but it won’t stick.
