Frequently Asked Questions
How does electrostatic painting work?
The object to be painted receives a positive electrical ground. The paint receives a negative electrical charge. The positively grounded object then attracts the negatively charged paint, much like a magnet attracts iron fillings.
These opposing forces actually pull the paint toward the object being painted. The primary benefit of electrostatic painting is that it eliminates the messy overspray and drifting of paint, that is normally associated with conventional type spray systems.
