Coating Metal With Electrostatic Paint Technology

Electrostatic painting is a high-tech method of painting metal objects, from elevator doors and metal staircases to filing cabinets and metal railings. Lakeside Painting has considerable experience in using electrostatic paint technology, and are happy to put it to work on your next commercial or industrial project.

Below, we discuss the benefits of this method of metal coating.

Cost Savings

Compared to repurchasing file cabinets, metal desks, lockers, and both large and small machinery, Electrostatic Painting is highly economical. The application technology allows painters to achieve a finish that appears brand new. Electrostatic also cuts down on commercial and industrial business disruption, which also helps save on costs. Ultimately, this depends on the amount of prep work. If the preparation is limited, electrostatic coating can be finished overnight.

Although high-tech, Electrostatic Painting is also an environmentally-friendly approach to coating metal objects, including desks, locker rooms, large and small machinery, and many other surfaces.

How Electrostatic Paint Works

Electrostatic Painting is the spraying of electrically-charged paint at a metal object or surface with the opposite charge. To achieve the opposite charge, we attach a negative electrode to the metal surface. The resultant magnetic attraction pulls paint particles toward the object or surface, reducing overspray and limiting the amount of protective materials typically required for the job.

As a result, set-up and clean-up is streamlined and faster than other paint methods. Since the paint particles are like-charged, the paint spreads in an even fashion instead of leaving build-up, thin coats, drips, and areas with running paint. Electrostatic sprays also creates a flat, uniform surface that simply cannot be achieved with a brush.

Environmentally-Friendly

As we mentioned above, Electrostatic Paint technology is green and sustainable. This is important to both Lakeside Painting and many of our commercial and industrial customers. Charged paint leads to fewer paint particles released into the atmosphere.
