Electrostatic Application of Waterborne Paint 970996
The use of automotive waterborne paint is an industry trend aimed at minimizing environmental impact through reduced VOC's, while providing increased paint appearance and quality. These benefits are greatly increased when the paint is applied electrostatically. This paper will provide an explanation of an electrostatic waterborne base coat application system, a review of its components, and the integration with an electric robot. The system performance is then discussed citing actual production experience including data relative to paint savings, quality improvements, and reliability.
