Electrostatic Painting Metal Finishing

Electrostatic painting is based on the law of electricity - opposites attract. The object to be painted is given a negative electrical charge. The paint is given a positive charge and atomized through a special revolving disc. Instead of being blown on, using compressed air, the paint is actually sucked on. The surface to be painted attracts the paint just as a magnet attracts iron filings.

Electrostatic makes the paint adhere better to the metal and leaves a long lasting shine and a durable smooth finish. Electrostatic "wraps around" posts and gets into hard to reach places where most conventional paint guns cannot get. With no paint in those hidden places, rust becomes a factor very soon, so electrostatic is definitely the paint process of choice.
