Electrostatic painting is based on the principal of magnetism; opposites attract. The object to be painted is grounded or given a negative charge. The paint is given a positive charge and atomized in a special revolving disc. Instead of being blown on using compressed air, the paint is actually sucked on the surface to be painted. The object attracts the paint just like a magnet attracts metal.
Electrostatic painting has many advantages over other types of paint spray applications. The system is a highly efficient technology for the application of paint to specific work pieces, minimizing over spray.
