Wet painting systems

Spraying

Several spraying techniques are used for wet painting. An air sprayer, for example, operates with pressurised air supplied by a compressor that forces the paint through the nozzle. Airless paint sprayers do not use air to spray the paint. Instead, they use a motorised pump to pressurise the paint and push it out through the nozzle. The tiny particles of paint emitted from the sprayer penetrate well into pits and crevices on the surface, which is sealed with a uniform thick coating.

Other techniques

Another method is to give the paint an electrostatic charge, which attracts the paint to the grounded surface. This principle is also used in powder coating. Finally, the paint can be applied with a hot airless technique, thus at a higher temperature. By heating the paint, the viscosity decreases, which improves spraying efficiency and reduces overspray. DCS would me more than happy to inform you about the spraying technique that best suits your needs.
