Industrial Finishing is one of our biggest business units. We have partnered with Binks, DeVilbiss, Ransburg, MS and BGK, all of them brands owned by Carlisle Finishing Technology, in order to give a wide range of options to our customers.

Industrial finishing includes several matters. Every one of this products are mean for specifical customers, conditions or needs.

Our industrial finishing solutions are designed to save time and money. Among our customers there are distributors of industrial products, automotive plants, manufacturing and more.

What is it Industrial Finishing?

Industrial finishing is any kind of secondary process done to any metal, plastic, wood, ceramic or other material product used in a common market such as automotive, in order to complete the production process and get it ready for use.

The industry that uses the industrial finishing the most is the automotive. These finishes are sprayed on as either liquids or powders. The layers of paintings are usually applied by manufacturers on the assembly line while making a product.

Today, industrial finishing can be use for automotive, welding, electronic and construction industries among others.

A short history of Industrial Finishing

In 1888, physician Dr. Allen DeVilbiss combined a bulb, some tubing and the base of an oil can to create the first atomiser. His invention was aimed to health care use. Two years later, Joseph Binks introduced the first cold-water paint spraying machine.

Some years later, in 1940, Harold Ransburg developed the first electrostatic application system. In the next decades, through research and development, he achieved material transfer efficiency levels of up to 98%, which meant drastic reductions in overspray, VOC emissions, and cost savings.

Today, industrial finishing has improved, bringing safety, cost and time savings and better results.

Spray Guns

Spray guns are the central elements in industrial finishing tasks. In this article we will answer key questions from those who work in the industry.

Spray guns are equipment that can spray paint or varnish using air pressure in order to apply it or spread it on a surface.

These guns can be used to paint on any type of surface or substrate, be it metal, wood, stone, clay (ceramics) and porcelain, plastic, glass and textile.

For this reason, spray guns are fundamental tools for any type of manufacturing industry and repainting services, since they allow industrial finishing of any of their products in an economical and efficient way.

Spray guns were invented in 1888 by Dr. Allen DeVilbiss in the United States. Then, his son continued to improve the invention, producing the first spray gun to use compressed air.

The development of spray guns technology has continued to this day.

For the vast majority of industrial finishing jobs it is essential to use spray guns. Simply, it is the option that is the best in price and production speed.

Codinter is the ideal supplier of industrial finishing equipment, products, accessories and consumables. We are distributors of Binks, Devilbiss, Ransburg, MS, and BGK. We distribute spray guns, electrostatic spray guns, automotive spray guns, industrial paint pumps, and everything you need for industrial finishing application.

Electrostatic Atomization

Electrostatic atomization is an industrial finishing process in which the paint jet or coating is applied by the action of an electric field. With this, the necessary forces are obtained for spraying the surface charges or the polarization of the liquid is achieved.

This method is based on the principle that negatively charged objects are attracted to positively charged objects.

An electric charge, generally negative, is applied to the coating material. The drops, negatively charged, are charged to the end of the spray gun by means of a charged electrode. Thus, they are pulverized and attracted to any surface. Each particle receives a negative charge of 30-140 kV and 0-200 mA.

With electrostatic atomization, the enveloping effect can be achieved. In this one, the atomized paint surpasses the piece and takes the opposite direction, managing to cover the back of the piece, as well as its edges.

With this effect the efficiency of the transfer is increased, which in some cases of electrostatic atomization reaches 98%. To achieve this, it is necessary that the difference of the charges is enough. In some pieces it can be seen how the paint mist envelops the object to be coated.

The electrostatic atomization can be added to any of the atomization techniques that exist, in order to improve the rate of product transfer.

Electrostatic Atomization
Paint Pumps

Paint Pumps

Paint pumps are widely used in industrial finishing. In many applications, without the help of the pumps to paint, it would be almost impossible to carry out some projects, given the time it would take and the cost it would have.

In general terms, paint pumps can be classified into:

  • Pneumatic
  • Electrical
  • Hydraulic

Of course, pumps can be used for many different applications, not just for painting.

The advantage of using Binks paint pumps is that they are specifically developed for industrial finishing applications. That is why it can be said that they are made to last.

Of course, just as the coatings vary according to the wide range of industrial finishing needs that companies may have, it also changes the appropriate pump to use.
