Antistatic Paint Suits are Critically Important to Producing Clean Paint Jobs

Automotive paint suits are well-established as safety garments that protect professional spray painters from exposure to potentially harmful chemicals and toxic fumes associated with their job. However, wearing a protective spray suit isn’t just to help reduce health risks from hazardous elements. As with all of our CTW International products, paint suits with antistatic properties have been thoroughly tested to ensure a high-quality, clean paint job.  

Why should paint suits be “antistatic?”

Most styles of protective paint suits are made from synthetic materials that have the tendency to create a static charge created by the movement and friction occurring during painting. This static charge attracts unwanted contaminants like dust onto the suit and into the paint booth. Bringing these particles into the booth could result in a “dirty” or less than perfect paint job.

When spraying paint in the booth, the dust may jump from the suit to the surface being painted due to the electrostatic charges which can adversely affect the finish of the vehicle. To avoid a blemish in the paint job, painters should always wear a tested and trusted spray suit that is either made out of an antistatic material or can be treated with an antistatic coating so as to dissipate this static electricity and overcome this common issue.

Antistatic Coating vs Antistatic Material

The two different types of antistatic spray suits are those treated with an antistatic coating or those made out of antistatic fabric. For nonwoven fabrics, an anti-static treatment is applied by spraying the surface of the finished paint suit or by treating the fabric before production. These types of suits are washable up to five washes. For other spray suits, a special carbon thread is woven directly into the fabric, thereby providing permanent anti-static properties, no matter the number of washings.

The CTW Nylon Paint Suit is made from premium lint-free, anti-static coated nylon fabric. It includes a highly breathable, stretch fabric mesh on the back of the suit and hood for heat release and comfort. The hood is attached and features a soft, elastic enclosure creating a very comfortable, custom fit around the face. The two-way zipper has a fabric pull tab and features a storage compartment to protect your chin when fully zipped. Elastic cuffs at the wrists and ankles provide a soft feel and help retain sweat. There are two rear pockets and a front zippered chest pocket for easy-access storage for small items.
