electrostatic painting

Has anyone tried to electrostaticly paint sheet metal, engine parts, etc.
What paint brand of paint have you use?

I'm new to electrostatic painting. I have a job opportunity to paint a large number of grocery store dairy, meat etc.. cases. They want gloss black, but I can't seem to find anyone with answers on product to use. Auto paint store didn't now what electrostatic painting is.
Local static paints companies won't give up any secrets.

I've got a 75kv graco pro3500hc.

Re: electrostatic painting

Are you talking about powder coating? that is how the powder is applied (electrostatically) then cure at high temp.

Apologies if I'm way off base

Re: electrostatic painting

Powder coatings comes ready to use to take a static charge.

I'm painting with electrostatic air assist gun. I tried some Dupont centuri, it kind worked but wouldn't wrap completely around the object I was spraying but had a lot less dust/overspray then my iwata

I'm going to try some Nason urethane and some dupont Chromabase

Re: electrostatic painting

Electrostaticly is how airplanes are painted. The "vehicle" is charged and so is the paint gun. Your on your own from here. My brother paints the club's plane the old fashioned way, like our cars.
