Electrostatic painting uses the principle of “opposites attract” to create a drip free, uniform and durable finish on metal. The wrap-around effect results from a force field between the negatively charged paint particles and the grounded work piece. The result is a flawless paint job without the drips and bubbles that can occur with traditional liquid paints. Both the front and rear of the work piece are coated at the same time, saving you time and money. It’s much more durable than liquid paint. And it’s an environmentally friendly process because there are no solvents to evaporate into the air or go down the drain.
The main benefit offered by an electrostatic painting system is efficiency. This high efficiency translates into significant cost savings due to reduced overspray. A phenomenon of electrostatic finishing known as “wrap” causes some paint particles that go past this workpiece to be attracted to the back of the piece, further increasing transfer efficiency. Increased transfer efficiency also reduces VOC emissions and lowers hazardous waste disposal costs.
