The nozzle of the electrostatic spray gun is connected with negative high-voltage static electricity. When the voltage reaches high enough, the air in the area near the nozzle will produce a strong corona discharge, forming a gas ion area. When the coating particles atomized by the electrostatic spray gun are in this area, the atomized particles of the coating have a negative charge. When the painted workpiece is suspended from the grounding line, the surface of the surface of the workpiece will have a positive charge. According to the electrostatic principle of the opposite charge phase attraction, with a negative charge of paint particles on the work surface movement to different order, adsorbed and deposited on the surface of the workpiece, forming a layer of uniform dense paint film, the workpiece is coated.
Second, the definition of
According to the principle of electrostatic field acting on electric charge, applying the physical phenomenon of electrostatic induction, the coating is sprayed on the surface of the workpiece.

Iv. Process performance
Electrostatic spraying production process:
Pre-treatment of workpiece surface -- → drying -- → electrostatic painting -- → leveling -- → baking (heating into film) -- → cooling -- → remove the workpiece
1. Workpiece surface pretreatment
Degreasing, spray washing and phosphating treatment
2. Electrostatic spraying
A. The voltage is generally between 80KV and 120KV
B. Spacing between spray gun and workpiece should be 25-40cm
C. the distance between the spray guns should be at least 1m

2) disc: 3000 r/min, Φ Φ 200-300 mm in diameter
Five, the coating
1, thermoplastic plastic should not choose thermosetting coating, generally choose solvent volatile coating, thermosetting plastic should not choose high temperature curing class coating
PF can be used for polyacrylic coating, polyurethane two-component coating and amino coating.
3. Solvent: the solvent is general (xylene, diacetone alcohol, benzene, etc.)
But the use of solvents to consider: a, can dissolve paint and various additives
B no damage to plastic parts
C. It is better that the solubility parameter is located at the edge of the plastic solubility parameter region
4, choose coating to consider:
