Ionix Static Eliminators for eliminating dust in auto, truck, RV, motorcycle painting

Perfect finishes are the direct result of superior surface preparation before spraying. This is especially true of painting plastic or rubber parts. The surfaces must be free of static to prevent the attraction of airborne dust. Ionix Static Eliminators are safe to use in hazardous environments.

What causes dust and fisheyes in my paint job?

Static on the surface (which can be caused by many factors too numerous to list here) attracts and holds dust which when painted driesasa "fisheye" or blemish. Blowing compressed air over the surface DOES NOT dissipate the surface static. If fact, the high air velocities of compressed air blowing on a surface an actually make static worse since the friction of the rapidly flowing air over the surface creates surface static. All the compressed air does during blowoff is physically push the static charged dust into the air only to be re-attracted to the surface later. By using an Ionix Static Eliminator during blowoff and tacking, you actually dissipate any static present on the surface and on the dust particles prior to painting so neither the surface or the dust are electrically charged and therefore attracted to each other.

Tacking isn't sufficient to prep surfaces for perfect finishes

Ionix is superior to tacking since tack cloths only pick up loose dust on the surface. The REAL problem is static on the surface to be painted CAUSES dust to be attracted to the surface. Unless you eliminate that surface static, the dust will return after tacking and you will have reworks.

Tacking creates static. Tack cloths have a slight adhesive that causes the dust to stick to the cloth. However, adhesives pulled from or across a surface cause static. You can prove it at your desk. A roll of scotch tape is like a tack cloth. It has an adhesive backing. Quickly pull the tape out of the dispenser and then place your forearm close to the gap where the tape separates from the roll. You can feel the static charge at that gap through the hairs on your forearm if you put them close to the gap. The adhesive pulling from the roll, like a tack cloth across a surface, creates static. So even after you tack, the static created during tacking will attract more dust which appears as fisheyes or blemishes in your paint jobs. Ionix actually eliminates surface static which attracts and holds dust to the surface.

Plus tacking is expensive to do because it uses so much labor time and their cost. Tack cloths retail for about $1 each. If you go through one every 2 days its cheaper to use Ionix! And that doesn't even account for the savings in labor dollars it takes to tack surfaces.

PLUS - you can blow off the car between coats! Many painters experience dust on the base coat when they're ready to clear coat. With Ionix you can give an additional quick static elimination before the clear coat.

Ionix Static Eliminators are simple to install

You do not have to use a special hose or air gun to use Ionix. Ionix Static Eliminators can be installed ANYWHERE in the blowoff air line. Ionix fits standard 3/8" ID air hoses.

If you have only one air line shared for both blowoff and painting, when you're ready to blow off the surface, attach the Ionix Static Eliminator to the end of the air hose. Blowoff and tack and then remove Ionix Static Eliminator from the air hose and attach paint gun to the air hose when your ready to paint.

If you have a dedicated air line for blowoff, you can install the Ionix Static Eliminator at the line drop after the regulator. Ionix does not need to be at the end of the air line to be effective. The length of the air hose Ionix is installed on does not diminish its ability to dissipate static on the surface.
