What Does Electrostatic Paint Mean?
An electrostatic paint is a type of spray coating that is used to efficiently coat a metal substrate by inducing an electrical charge to the paint particles that make up the spray, causing the paint to adhere to the metal's oppositely charged surface.
A spray gun uses compressed air to atomize the electrostatic paint into a fine spray of tiny droplets and force the paint through the spray gun's head (tip). The droplets are given a positive charge. The positively charged droplets are attracted to the metal substrate, which is negatively charged during the operation.
As with other paints, electrostatic paints are used for corrosion prevention.
