Painting is a costly and difficult challenge by scraping off the old coat and applying a new one. The costs for paint are consistent every couple of years with the constant repurchasing to get the right materials.

These challenges are compounded by the fact that paint prices are increasing because of supply chain issues.

Electrostatic painting is a new solution that gives you more for a quality finish. Here are some of the reasons why electrostatic painting is a better value and superior to the other options.

Electrostatic versus Traditional Painting

Electrostatic painting positively charges ions in the paint coming out of the electrostatic paint gun. These ions react to the negative ions on the surface, causing the paint to go deeper into the material. The charge sticking to the particles forms chemical bonds and fastens to the surface you are painting.

The cure time is 12 to 24 hours, but you can touch the electrostatic paint on the surface in a few hours.  After this is when you can use the surface like usual and not worry about performing constant maintenance.

Traditional painting does not offer this and applies the paint’s ions with the other negative ones on the surface. These compounds are weaker and the paint will look good, but the coats will not last. You will have to go back in a couple of years and repaint everything to maintain the desired look and protect the material.

The cure time is 24 to 48 hours, but you want to wait a few days before returning to normal usage. After this timeframe is when the coat is strong enough to withstand wear and tear.

We recommend using electrostatic paint to get a better job and have a protected surface against the elements.

 A-1 Tropic Painting & Waterproofing is the contractor that uses electrostatic solutions to get the best results. We are experts in electrostatic paint to give you a protected surface against the elements that lasts.

Lower Waste

You will have less waste when using electrostatic paint on any surface, such as concrete, masonry, metal, or wood. The charged particles connecting with the negative ions on the surface create less waste. You see more of the paint sticking to the surface and less going onto other areas or the ground.

For example, combining positive and negative ions is what creates bonds similar to two magnets. The attraction makes the combined elements stronger merging to develop a new atom in the paint that withstands the elements. More paint goes onto the surface versus less is going to the surrounding areas.  

We recommend using electrostatic paint to decrease your waste and ensure that more go onto the target surface.

At A-1 Tropic Painting & Waterproofing, will restore your surface to a new state; the paint does not carry germs, and has minimal overspray. You have an excellent solution that gives you the best results on your paint job.


One of the challenges with traditional painting is you will spend several hours doing maintenance and repainting. The costs for materials and labor over time increase your expenses for maintaining the surface.

Electrostatic paint lasts longer, and you don’t have to worry about repainting every couple of years. Instead, the paint can last from 10 to 15 years before you want to do maintenance and bring everything back to the original state.

You save time with the electrostatic paint, and don’t worry about repainting the surface.

We recommend this solution, as you do your painting once and never worry about the paint lasting.

Even Finish

Painting with a paint sprayer will never give you an even finish, as the paint builds up in pockets. Electrostatic paint sprays out evenly to provide you with a smooth and crisp finish.

We recommend this solution, as you have an even surface after just one coat with an excellent look and feel.
