Paints & Coatings
Newson Gale offer certified static grounding protection for hazardous applications in the paints and coatings industry mitigating the risk of fires and explosions.
Solvents and combustible organic powders are heavily utilized constituents of decorative and protective paints and coatings.
Although more stringent VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) targets are in place, the use of solvents is still important in aerospace, marine, electronics and general industrial protective coating applications.
The milling, grinding and extraction of organic powders and mixing and blending of solvents can generate hazardous levels of static electricity and this risk must be managed effectively through the application of fit for purpose grounding and bonding static control equipment.
