electrostatic painting

electrostatic painting

[i′lek·trə‚stad·ik ′pānt·iŋ]
(engineering)
A painting process that uses the particle-attracting property of electrostatic charges; direct current of about 100,000 volts is applied to a grid of wires through which the paint is sprayed to charge each particle; the metal objects to be sprayed are connected to the opposite terminal of the high-voltage circuit, so that they attract the particles of paint.

Epoxy paint is used in industrial applications for coating metal substrates in electrostatic painting. This study suggests that it could also be used in RDP to mask metal clasps, because it bonds to metal surfaces by means of an electrochemical process, and has good flexural ability.
GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes S.A., the largest low-fare, low-cost airline in Latin America, has received authorization from the National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) to provide conventional and electrostatic painting, weighing and recalibration services for other companies' aircraft in its Maintenance Center in Confins, Belo Horizonte.
Since the part must be grounded to attract the charged paint particles, metal components lend themselves well to electrostatic painting. Even relatively nonconductive materials such as plastics and wood are successfully coated with electrostatic guns by first applying a conductive primer.
