Summary

An overview of electrostatic charging and application of porcelain enamel powder is presented. The effects of powder particle size and shape on charging efficiency, coating formation, and back ionization are discussed. Using an analysis of the back ionization phenomenon, ways in which new technological developments help improve efficiency and finish quality are explained.
