Electrostatic painting creates a uniform and durable finish which wraps around all sides of the metal without runs, drips or bubbles which can occur using traditional paint methods of spray or brush and roll. The technique uses the principal of "opposites attract” to produce very little to no overspray with a transfer rate of nearly 100% and allows the paint to reach nearly impossible places of the surface, including tight corners and cracks.
Powder coating, which is a more commonly known process, also uses an electrical charge to attract the paint to the metal surface, but in order for the powder coat to cure, the metal object must be placed in an oven to be baked. This is where electrostatic painting surpasses powder coating. Electrostatic paint does not need to be baked. This allows the process to be done onsite and there is no need to dismantle objects to be painted. A standard warranty at Capitol Coating Concepts is two to three years, but the vast majority of work lasts longer than the terms of warranty. Depending on the frequency of usage and exposure to weather elements, electrostatic painting can last up to 10 to 12 years! The resulting finish is flawless and durable.
