The technology and development of professional painting has skyrocketed in recent years. The benefit for those of us in the industrial and commercial painting industry is, of course, that we have better and more efficient tools at our disposal, both in the form of products and equipment.
The benefit for you as property owners and managers is that Painters USA has been at the forefront of utilizing new technologies, and can make you, your property, and your organization look better than ever.
One perfect example of this is electrostatic painting. It may sound like something from a science fiction film, but it offers very tangible, real-world benefits for your industrial machinery especially.
What Is Electrostatic Painting?
In short, electrostatic painting is the happy union between paint and harnessing the power of electrical charge. Our specialized equipment, operated by trained professionals, applies a charge to the paint, and then the opposite charge to the metal surface being coated. This means that as the paint is sprayed, it is attracted to the equipment, gripping tightly and dispersing itself evenly.
What Are the Benefits of Electrostatically Painting Machinery?
- Restores a factory-like finish on equipment, racking, lockers, file cabinets, metal window frames, and more
- Evenly distributes paint
- Paint gets to those places you can't reach with traditional spraying, brushing, or rolling
- Helps you comply with ISO 9001, Lean Manufacturing, and 6S (Six Sigma) programs
- Cleaning and painting your machinery can reveal hydraulic leaks that would have been buried and left unseen under dirt, grime, and debris
One other benefit that deserves extra attention is the fact that very little overspray is created. After all, the paint wants to find a home on the surface because of its natural attraction. This makes for a neat, clean, and efficient process.
