What are spray painting and powder coating?
Posted by: doPowder | on September 22, 2022
Spray painting, including electrostatic spraying, is a process of applying liquid paint to an object under pressure. Sprayg Painting can be done manually or automatically. There are several methods for atomizing paint spraying:
- Using a conventional air compressor – air under pressure through the mouth of a small outlet, draws the liquid paint from the container and creates a mist of air paint from the nozzle of the spray gun
- Airless spray – the paint container is pressurized, pushing the paint toward the nozzle, atomized by the spray gun, or
- Electrostatic Spray – An electric pump sprays electrostatically charged liquid paint from a nozzle and applies it to a grounded object.
Powder coating is the process of applying electrostatically charged powder coating powder to a grounded object.
Spray Painting and powder coating are performed in a variety of industries. For example, items commonly sprayed include motor vehicles, buildings, furniture, white goods, boats,
Ships, aircraft and machinery.
