The Electrostatic Principle

Electrostatic spray technology is based on the scientific principle that "opposites attract." In electrostatic spraying, a negatively charged liquid coating is attracted to a neutral, grounded target. This simple principle has powerful implications for advanced coating technology:

  • The physical attraction of the liquid to the target actually pulls the coating to the chain surface, providing a very high transfer efficiency – typically over 90%.
  • Overspray is virtually eliminated, reducing clean-up and improving the work environment.
