Powder Electrostatic Technology of Household Appliance Enamelling


Oksana Shalygina, Lyuidmyla Bragina and Mykola Kuryakin

Basics and distinctive features of contemporary resource and energy saving technology of powder electrostatic application (POESTA) of vitreous enamel coatings are described. Its technological, economic and ecological advantages over slip enamelling in household appliances manufacture, particularly in Ukraine, are discussed. Synthesis principles of special glass frits with high specific electric resistivity for POESTA and results of investigation concerning development and industrial implementation of ground, direct-on and coloured cover enamels for household appliances are given. Development of compositions for obtaining of easy-to-clean, catalytic and pyrolytic coatings is described.
