Electrostatic Coating is a new process which is being used widely for painting purposes. It has a high quality and fast-acting effect on a wide range of paints and finishes. Electrostatic coating ensures that when you apply paint to a surface, the paint has an electrical charge which is free to move across the surface. This gives a much smooth and even finish to your paint job.
There are two ways to use electrostatic painting process. One way is where there are charged particles of paint. These are generally lead particles or tin/zinc based particles. When this coating is applied to a surface, the particles gather themselves together and form a thin layer of paint.
The second way to use electrostatic process is where there are not charged paint particles. Instead of paint particles, the coating actually works with static electricity. When this happens, the paint particles gather together and the coating becomes very smooth and even. To start the electrostatic process, you need to plug in a small electrical device such as a hair dryer. Allow the hair dryer to heat up for a few minutes, so that you can get some static charges to build up.
The next step of the coating is to place the coated object on a piece of cardboard. You can use a squeegee to push the coating from one side of the object onto the other side. When you are using a squeegee, be careful to not let any paint particles touch the floor. The easiest way to start the electrostatically charged coating process is to start from the back of the object onto the front side. Do this until you have reached the desired thickness and then apply it to the surface.
Electrostatic coatings are generally used to increase the transfer efficiency of paint application. As you know, transfer efficiency means the higher the speed at which an electric charge is picked up and transferred from a charge to an inert gas, the greater the efficiency. High transfer efficiency means less clean up and a better finish. With electrostatic coating, the paint can pick up and transfer much faster.
There are three common types of electrostatic coating coatings available. One type is electrostatic gun coating. In this case, the gun creates an electrostatic field, which is similar to a static charge. The object is placed between two guns that create the field. This type of coating is very useful for objects that will be painted over many times.
Another type is electrostatic painting roll coating. This process produces a film that rolls on the surface of the object and picks up and transfers electrostatic charge to any surface that comes into contact with the surface. Roll coating generally has a high transfer efficiency and is ideal for painting doors and other smooth flat surfaces. It is also popular as a paint for machines since it minimizes slippage.
The last type is electrostatic painting beam coating. This is a very fast painting process and is used in spraying nozzles. It is most effective on metal and aluminum items. A bright hot beam of paint shoots from the nozzle at an angle and travels down the surface to touch any grounded target, such as a door. This process is very convenient and efficient.
In electrostatically charged areas, the painting beam will pick up any grounded object that comes into contact with the painting surface and transfer it electrostatically. The object to be painted will experience a small electrostatic charge, which is caused by the metal object being charged and trapped by the paint particles. When this happens, the object is moved from its original position. The speed of the electrostatically charged object is dependent on the frequency of the electric field and the thickness of the coating.
There are many advantages associated with electrostatic painting. Electrostatic restoration experts and technicians are able to apply this method of restoration more effectively than others. This process is faster, less messy and less expensive. Therefore, they are able to do more jobs and provide more services.
It is important to hire a professional to perform electrostatic process restoration. There are many methods and products available that specialize in electrostatic painting, but not all of them can produce the same results. An experienced technician should be able to accurately determine the paint application, coat thickness and the exact paint application method needed for the specific electrostatic process.
