Spray painting is the most widespread application method and is very flexible. It enables both the economical coating of simple and complex components from the prototype to the mass production.
The paint is applied with conventional spray guns, preferably in the HVLP process, and with small nozzle diameters in order not to exceed the maximum permissible coating thickness of 20 µm for scratch-resistant coatings.
The advantage of spray coating is the high flexibility regarding geometry and size of the components. Small parts can also be coated very economically in large quantities on continuous lines.
A disadvantage of spray coating is the higher paint consumption due to losses caused by overspray.
