ON-SITE ELECTROSTATIC PAINTING

Metal surfaces on buildings, railings, gates, fences, and signs exposed to harsh weather conditions like UV rays and moisture, can prematurely deteriorate or rust if they are not properly protected from the elements. If your home or business needs painting, do not settle for traditional paint and application methods. These leave poor quality finishes, require extended periods of drying time, and will surely need annual touch-ups. For the most durable and complete protection, electrostatic painting is the ideal solution for your home or business.

Electrostatic Painting

Initially, electrostatic painting was used in manufacturing facilities to paint metal items such as machinery and automobiles because of its quality finish, efficiency, and speed. The basic idea of electrostatic painting is that the paint is attracted to the painting surface like a magnet is attracted to a metal. The applicator machine positively charges the paint. It is then sprayed onto a metal surface that is grounded with a negative charge. As a result of the positive and negative charges, the paint is attracted directly to the metal surface and creates a uniform coat around the object. This cannot be accomplished with conventional paint and spray applicators.

Ransburg No.2

The development of mobile or on-site applicators have made this modern technology accessible for commercial and residential projects. Glass Inc. uses the Ransburg No.2 as its preferred electrostatic painting applicator. The machine achieves a transfer rate of 95%. It is the most advanced and efficient applicator for mobile electrostatic painting on the market. 

The Benefits of Electrostatic Painting 

Electrostatic painting is very effective, and it accommodates a variety of metal items. Common electrostatic paint projects include metal storefronts, railings, doors, stairs, signage, buildings, gates, fences, outdoor furniture and machinery. Here are some of the benefits of electrostatic painting when compared to traditional paint and applicators. 

  • Electrostatic painting achieves a quality finish and even coat due to its unique method of application. 
  • The finish is not porous. This makes the coating less prone to staining, and it is easy to clean.
  • Since the paint is only attracted to areas with a negative charge, it significantly minimizes overspray and wasted materials. 
  • Standard and custom paint options are available. 
  • Electrostatic paint is far more durable than standard paint. The finish protects against deterioration from the elements for years.
  • Items generally only require one coat, and the paint does not drip or clump together.
  • Application is quick and drying time only takes a couple of hours. 
  • It is minimally disruptive to your home or business. 
  • Electrostatic painting does not require an oven to cure paint like powder coating. 
  • Jobs can be completed on-site with mobile units like the Ransburg No.2 
  • It is eco-friendly compared to traditional paint because of its low VOC emissions
