Electrostatic Paint

BC paints manufacture a market-leading electrostatic coating with a high solids content, developed to provide superb value for high-volume paint users (average order volume 3000 L or more). The paint is available in any colour. Choose from an extensive range of standard hues.
Our unique, low solvent formula is compliant with all council-run solvent reduction schemes.

What is electrostatic paint?

Electrostatic coatings use positively charged particles to evenly coat a conductive, metallic surface. As the paint particles are electrically attracted to the surface, electrostatic paints provide greater coverage efficiency, less overspray and better wraparound than other spray paints. The reduced solvent content also lowers environmentally harmful VOC emissions. Electrostatic coatings are not compatible with nonconductive surfaces, such as wood, metal, stone and concrete.
Electrostatic paints provide numerous environmental, cost-saving and time-saving advantages over conventional spray paint:

Environmental benefits

  • Reduced VOC emissions
  • Less overspray (paint missing the surface when sprayed and left in the atmosphere), meaning less air pollution and lower environmental impact
  • Reduced health risk to spray paint operators
  • No hazardous or toxic materials
  • Cost-saving benefits
  • Improved paint transfer efficiency – 25% less waste than conventional spray paints
  • Reduced overspray means you use less paint for each coating
  • Improved durability and quality compared with conventional spray paint
  • Better, more even surface coverage

Time-saving benefits

  • Fast and easy to apply
  • No thinner required – simply give the paint a quick stir and use immediately
  • Ultrafast drying – reduced risk of water spotting
  • High build rate of up to 450 µm per coat before the paint starts to run

Application

Our electrostatic paint is compatible with most types of spray equipment, including Graco, Wagner, DeVilbiss and Kremlin. Follow your manufacturer’s instructions and apply in the same way as a conventional spray paint.
