Electrostatic Spray Guns: What Are the Benefits?


How do Electrostatic Spray Guns Work?

Electrostatic Spray Guns

Electrostatic spray guns are a distinct type of paint spray gun that applies an electric charge to the paint that is sprayed onto grounded objects. When sprayed with an electrostatic spray gun, the paint particles can actually change direction in midair (even up to 180 degrees) as they are attracted to the surface of the grounded object. This results in extremely high transfer efficiencies with little to no over-spray, saving you a lot of paint and materials. Additional benefits to electrostatic spraying include increased finished product quality, lower costs, environmental improvements – lower VOCs (volatile organic compounds) emissions, a reduced amount of over-spray cleanup, less re-work, and an overall faster production process.
