What is Electrostatic Coating?
Electrostatic coating is a paint spraying process that utilizes an electrical charge to atomize the paint particles and draw them to the metal workpiece that the paint is being applied to. The paint particles are positively charged in our electrostatic paint gun, and then are attracted to the negatively charged metal workpiece when sprayed out of the paint gun. The electrostatic painting process provides for a premium finished surface that will look amazing for many years. This process is nearly identical to the powder coating process, except electrostatic coating is more versatile and cost efficient than powder coating.

Electrostatic Coating Vs. Powder Coating
Our shop is here to provide unique home décor products. We specialize in custom cabinet and door hardware, wrought iron fencing, gates, custom wrought iron doors and much more. Our services also include electrostatic coating — a method of painting metal that is even more durable than powder coating. We also offer welding services; we can weld anything from aluminum to steel. Contact us today for a free consultation.
Electrostatic coatings are extremely UV-resistant. Our high UV-resistance makes our coatings preferable for nearly all applications – especially outdoor environments. Electrostatic coating performance regarding UV-resistance is comparable – if not superior – to powder coating performance. Certain types of electrostatic paints are even highly resistant to water corrosion. The extreme resistance to water and UV corrosion makes electrostatic coatings a premium and durable finish in nearly all applications.
Our electrostatic equipment is lightweight and mobile. This means that we can
transport all our equipment easily and provide you a high-quality finish on-site.
Powder coating equipment is not mobile at all meaning you will be required to
transport your item to a powder coat shop costing you time and money.
Due to innovative processes and technology, the cost of getting an electrostatic
coat finish is substantially less than that of a powder coat finish. Electrostatic
coatings can be as much as 50% more cost efficient than powder coat finishes –
depending on the size of your project.
Electrostatic coatings also tend to be more durable than powder coat finishes when it comes to taking damage. Powder coat finishes can tend to be brittle and begin to flake if your item is damaged. This tends to happen because of the baking process that powder coatings must go through; this process can result in finishes that may be brittle and susceptible to damage and flaking. Electrostatic coatings do not undergo this baking process. This difference in the curing process tends to make electrostatic coatings more durable and less likely to flake/crack.
Electrostatic coatings are far easier to maintain than powder coat finishes. Whether you need small touch-up work done, or just want a fresh coat to make your product look brand new, we can do this more easily and cheaper than a powder coat shop. Powder coat finishes need to be sand blasted and undergo more extensive preparation processes than electrostatic coatings do. This makes maintenance coats much faster and cost efficient when electrostatic coatings are used.
