Does your company have bathroom stalls, lockers, window frames or other metal surfaces that look rusted or worn-out? While it may be easy for you to overlook these things during a busy workday, that doesn’t mean your customers and employees don’t notice. Stained, scratched, and worn-out surfaces give your facilities a tired, run-down appearance even if everything is clean. At Alpine Painting and Restoration, we restore metal surfaces to their factory finish to make your whole facility look almost-new. The method we use is called electrostatic painting, and we are one of the few electrostatic painting contractors in Pennsylvania who specialize in this technique.
Old metal items that have rusted or dulled due to age can be an eyesore no matter how much you try to clean them. They can diminish even the nicest decor and bring down the value of an entire room or property. In addition, restoring metal isn’t exactly an easy DIY project you can perform on the weekend. Using standard paint on metal can be messy and uneven, making your metal fixtures look even worse in the end. Thankfully, there’s a better way. Electrostatic painting is a great technique for renewing your metal pieces and revitalizing an entire area. With such an accurate paint job, your metal fixtures will look like they came straight from the factory.
Why consider electrostatic painting?
Electrostatic painting is a process whereby a conductive material is painted with a process that uses electrically charged particles to prevent overspray and improve accuracy. It’s a much more scientific and precise process than any paint job that is done by hand.
Surfaces that can be restored using electrostatic painting include:
In addition to standard commercial painting services and epoxy flooring, we offer the best trained, certified, and insured electrostatic painting contractors in Pennsylvania.

Much like electrostatic painting, powder coating uses electrical charges to create a strong bond between paint and a painted item. However, powder coating bonds are not strong enough to dry onsite. Any powder-coated items must then be baked in an oven off-site to ensure a smooth and durable finish. This requires additional time and labor. On the other hand, electrostatic painting can be done entirely onsite so no transportation of items is required. Items dry quickly and are ready for use much sooner, creating minimal interruptions to your daily workflow.
In short, electrostatically applied paint dries faster than wet spray methods and doesn’t require high-heat ovens. You no longer have to wait for weeks with rooms temporarily out of use or for fumes to dissipate. Normal business can resume within days, making this procedure one of the most effective ways to restore your facilities.
The cost of electrostatic painting will vary according to the type of item you are painting, how big your project is, and several other factors. However, you can rest easy knowing that electrostatically painting an item will always be cheaper than replacing the item, which is often the only other option when it comes to metal equipment or furniture. The finished look of your freshly-painted metal fixtures will resemble fixtures that are clean and new. In fact, don’t be surprised if visitors are fooled into thinking you replaced them!
Classified as one of the “dry painting” systems of the powder paint it uses, the electrostatic painting process eliminates volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), hazardous pollutants (HAP’s) and solvents that are often found in other painting processes. The bonded coating made possible by the electrostatic painting process protects the surface underneath from corrosion that may be caused by moisture and oxidizing elements in the air. A high-quality finish restores the appearance to like-new condition.
