Applicator Type & Technology
   Coating Applicator Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Atomization (Wet Spray)       A coating process using wet spray paint or fluid coating media where a spray gun directs a coating or paint aerosol toward the part's surface.  The paint or coating aerosol is formed using a rotary (spinning disc or bell) atomizer, an ultrasonic atomizer, or by forcing the media through a nozzle with pressure.   
   Powder Coating       In powder coating systems, protective or decorative coatings are formed by application of powder to a substrate, after which the powder is fused into a continuous film by the application of heat or radiant energy. Powder coatings are finely divided particles of generally containing organic polymer or binder, pigments, fillers, and additives.  In a fluidized bed powder coating process, hot parts are introduced and the powder coating particle stick or fuse onto the part's surface.  In electrostatic powder coating systems, the particles are given an electric charge that causes the particles to be attracted to an oppositely charged part. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary coating process or technology.

   Electrostatic Coating?       In electrostatic coating, paint droplets or coating powder particles are charged and then sprayed toward a part with an opposite and attractive electric charge. The spray process may be airless or air assisted.  Since the charged powders in the spray stream are attracted toward the part, the electrostatic process help minimize overspray and waste. Coating powders in a fluidized bed can also be charged for the application of thicker coatings.  
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Spray / Atomization Technology:       
   Your choices are...         
   Air Spray (Air Atomized)       Paint application system wherein paint is atomized by combination with compressed air. System of applying paint in the form of tiny droplets in air, i.e., paint is broken down into droplets, or "atomized," by a spray gun as a result of being forced into a high velocity air stream. Shape and paint density of the resulting droplet cloud can be controlled by air pressure, paint viscosity, and gun tip geometry. 
   Air-assisted Airless       Air-assisted airless spray process is used to alter the spray fan shape pattern, but not to atomize the paint. 
   Airless       Paint spraying or application system using high fluid pressure to atomize paint by forcing it through a small orifice.  System of applying paint, where paint under high pressure is passed through a nozzle and broken down into droplets, or "atomized," when it enters the lower pressure region outside the gun tip. (Less air is used than in conventional air spraying so that the problems of dry spray and paint bounce-back is reduced.) 
   HVLP       High velocity, low pressure (HVLP) spray guns atomized coatings utilizing a high volume of paint with low air pressure.  HVLP spray equipment applies coating by means of a gun, which operates between 0.1 and 10.0 psig air pressure. A turbine produces the high volume of air. The lower pressure reduces paint viscosity, thus reducing bounce back, and increasing deposition efficiency. 
   Mini-spray / Airbrush       Airbrush, mini-spray, or microspray guns have very small nozzles and are used for detailing, touch-up and other precision applications. 
   Reduced / Low Pressure       Spray guns or spray equipment designed to operate under reduced pressure, while not requiring high volumes of air flow.  
   Rotary Cup / Disc       Rotary spray guns or applicators use a rapidly spinning cup/bell or flat disc to project powders or atomize paint. Rotary cup or bell rotary applicators produce a fan pattern, which is closer to a nozzle spray gun. A rotating head that is shaped to deliver paint forward in a circular pattern. The bell may be directed at any angle and be moved on robots or reciprocators, just as nozzle spray guns are.  Disc rotary applicators spin the coating media out radially.  Rotating heads that deliver paint horizontally 360° around the head are useful on an omega loop conveyer finishing lines. A disk is usually mounted horizontally on a vertical reciprocator. Disc rotary spray guns are also useful for internal or ID coating applications. 
   Ultrasonic       Ultrasonic atomization processes use a specialized transducer vibrating at ultrasonic frequencies to form a fine aerosol or mist of the coating material. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary spray process or spraying technology.
