Electrostatic Painting

Electrostatic painting (ESP) consists of electrically charged powder that is then sprayed on a surface and charged with the opposite electrical charge. It then bakes on the coating creating a uniform chemical coating. This type of painting is also referred to as “powder coating.” It is typically used on plastics and metal to create an even, hard-wearing finish. The coating wraps around the material and seals off all edges, protecting surfaces from corrosion.

The process of electrostatic painting is quite simple. A special electrostatic spray gun, filled with dry powder, charges objects with a positive electrical charge. Like a magnet, the object is attracted to the item. This important aspect assures an even coating application with no overspray. The first coat is very light, followed by a full wet coat.

Many things can be refinished by using electrostatic painting including wire products, shower stalls, desks, shelves, railings, windows and door frames, wrought iron products, and much more. Electrostatic painting goes beyond a simple paint job, but instead creates a complete chemical coating finish. You will find that by using ESP, you will be saving much money that could be wasted by replacing items. Also, many homeowners will be happy to know the ESP is environmentally friendly, due to there being no solvents used. All materials are nontoxic and all apparatus is UL and FM approved.

In addition, you have the option of choosing the color that suits your needs and décor the best. Thousands of colors are available, including custom made blends. Also there are antique, metallic, and gloss effects available. It is even possible to have a color matched perfectly by computer analysis, but it will be an added cost.

Using Quality Paint
When it comes to painting, about 90 percent of a good paint job is in the preparation. This, however, doesn’t mean that the other 10% should be ignored. Preparation gets the surface ready for paint, but if the paint isn’t of good quality then it will soon fall apart from cracking, peeling and chipping.
