“Metallic powder” results when very fine metal dust particles, such as aluminum, are blended into the powder during manufacturing. This aluminized look is very attractive, but weathers with time. Its other drawback is “loading.” Loading is the uncontrollable loss of electrostatic high-voltage power at the tip of the spray gun. “Loading” happens because the metallic powder has created an easier ground path through the powder hose for the nign voltage to travel. A specially designed Spray muzzle can help control this ground problem if the amount of metal used in the powder is not exceive Metallic Powders are sometimes blamed for causing Spray booth fires.
