Electrostatic Painting: What is it and Why it Works so Well

Restore Metal Surfaces to a Like-New Finish. Does Not Harbor Germs.

Resistant To Cleaning Solutions. Fast Drying. Minimal Overspray.

Electrostatic painting is a process of using a magnetic field to apply paint to metals and various types of plastics. It is based on the principle that “opposites attract”. By giving the object to be painted a negative charge and the paint a positive charge, the attraction is created and the result is a durable, smooth, hard paint finish that is plated on.

In electrostatic painting, the item to be painted receives a negative charge from a negatively charged electrode that looks similar to a battery cable. The paint has a positive charge, and it is sprayed on using a revolving nozzle. The positive and negative charges attract the paint like a magnet, to the metal surface. The paint seeks grounded objects and “wraps” around the object being painted. This occurs because the attraction between the opposing charges is so strong that the charge will draw the paint around the object, completely covering the surface. The paint is attracted statically to the metal from every direction so there isn’t any mess from overspray. There is no mess on the surrounding area and there would be very little, if any, paint lost or unused, since there is no overspray.

There are many benefits and advantages to electrostatic painting. The finish is plated on due to the electromagnetic field. It provides a smooth, hard enamel finish. The thickness of the paint is easy to control. It is cost effective because it saves both paint and time. It is very clean because there is no overspray or spattering and the application is uniform. The surface of the painted object is hygienic because it is non-porous and it is impervious to chemicals used for cleaning.

Electrostatic painting is an efficient, cost-effective, and clean method of painting.  It produces a strong, smooth,  and durable coating that endures for years to come.
