Tribo is the word used to describe a static charge that occurs when two different items are rubbed together. For example, tribo charging happens when dragging your shoes across a carpeted floor. A tribo spark discharges when your hand gets shocked from touching a metal doorknob. This same tribo charging happens when epoxy powder moves through a Teflon-lined powder gun barrel. As the epoxy powder rubs against the Teflon surface, an electron (-) in the powder is transferred to the Teflon. The epoxy powder now has a positive (+) tribo charge. A tribo powder gun precisely applies a very thin coating to an item. It can easily coat tight, recessed areas. A tribo gun also recoats well, so it’s usually used to apply a protective clear coat, when necessary, over a first coat.
