Electrostatic spray coating consists of depositing electrically charged powder particles on the metal surface at ambient temperature. The electrostatic charge is obtained by conveying the powder through a special spraying device, such as “corona” or “tribo” spray-gun.

Criteria For Choosing This Process

Thickness of the part:

The process is recommended for coating parts that are up to 6 mm thick.

Thickness of coating desired:

The process allows controlled thickness ranging from 80 to 120 μm (Rilsan® ESY grades), and from 100 to 150 μm (Rilsan® ES grades).

Size of the part to be coated:

There are no limits to the dimensions of the part to be coated; partial coating is possible.

Nature of part - surface treatment:

The process is suitable for all types of conductive metal substrates capable of withstanding a temperature of 220°C without deterioration.

Advantages of Electrostatic Spraying


  • Good control over powder deposition

  • Partial coating of the part can be achieved

  • Lower temperature to fuse powder

  • Shorter time to fuse powder

  • No crosslinking risk compared to thermoset materials

  • Smaller powder stock required

  • Process may be automated
