Your Home: "The Science of Electrostatic Painting on Wrought Iron"


Science and home improvement come together in the process called “electrostatic painting.”  The term “electrostatic” refers to the DCS Wrought Iron Gatestatic charges of particles or fields, rather than an electric current like those generated by light bulbs.  While you may be familiar with how useful electric currents can be for your home, electrostatic energy has been put to use in certain manufacturing processes that are frequently used in household products.

Electrostatic painting in particular refers to the use of charged particles in a painting process, usually the painting of a larger manufactured work piece or structures with many details like holes or curves.  DCS Industries uses electrostatic painting when they produce their customized wrought iron works or during repair projects at a client’s home or business.   The process involves a work piece that is electrostatically conductive, like metal, and electrically charged paint.  The process saves time, energy, and resources in the production or repair of structures like wrought iron fences.  The charge of the paint and the conductivity of the metal create an ionic bond, which means that a fence, railing, gate, or even patio furniture can be repainted in less time and by using less paint because the paint is attracted to the metal piece.  This makes it easier to cover detailed surface areas in an efficient amount of time.

The final product is durable, less likely to chip, crack, fade or peel over time and through season changes. The highly trained professionals at DCS Industries, LLC will complete the job and meet the strictest requirements and codes for any project.
