Powder lacquering, also known as powder coating, can be easily applied to conductive materials by means of electrostatic charging. For this purpose, the component is charged and the powder is applied using a spray gun in the tribo or corona charging process. The powder adheres to the component and thus builds up a uniform layer. […]
