Static Problems in Autobody Repair and Refinishing

In the automotive industry, electrostatic discharge is a constant challenge in a world where perfection is the only option–and dust and static are a constant. Static attracts dust and unwanted particles, making it very difficult to keep surfaces clean, causing blemishes in paint finishes and other work surfaces.

When you’re working with paints, wrappers and glass in the auto repair and detailing world, there’s no room for static. Static can attract dust and unwanted particles, making it incredibly difficult to keep surfaces clean. And that can lead to imperfections and blemishes and, ultimately, rework and added costs.

Transforming Technologies manufactures specialty ionizers that allow you to keep the surface clean so you can avoid unnecessary reworking and buffing, saving both time and money. These ionizers were created specifically for the auto body industry to eliminate surface contamination. Specialty ionizers for the auto body industry are used to eliminate surface contamination. These ionizers allow you to keep the surface clean so you can avoid unnecessary reworking and buffing, saving both time and money.  The guns work twofold: as a forceful blow off gun that easily removes particulate from surfaces and as a neutralizer to remove the charges responsible for the attraction of contaminants to product surfaces in the first place.

Anti-static wipers have been developed to clean off surfaces and can be used to clean surfaces as well.  Static is caused by friction, so wiping down surfaces to remove dirt can actually make the static problem worse.   The anti-static wipers are made with a specially designed fabric that will not tribocharge and will not lead to more static buildup.
