Sounds like a crock of bull to me. But what do I know, I am not a paint or dust particle, inventor, engineer,scientist, just a dumb painter/bodyman. Twice as much coverage, I'll have to see it to believe it I guess. Kind of like use to hear to ground the car before painting for static, but I've never done it or seen anyone use the practice.

It is a known fact that as you spray you are building a static charge on the vehicle. That static charge depending on it's polarity is either attracting or repelling the paint and dust.

Large aircraft are charged with a static charge when painting and the paint applicator has an opposite charge which attracts the paint and just about minimizes over spray.

Saw it on the Discovery channel, so it has to be true

No doubt ionizing will help with paint and this could be a valuable tool.
Get one and let's open er' up and SEE what's inside.

Might be cheaper to get some of those gas line magnets and zip tie them on the paint hose.

Is it true that spraying black causes the most static charge? Wondering if its possibly more effective with darker colors.

Whoa! I just noticed that.

Better Coverage (Up to 30% Paint Savings)
Eliminates Static - Dust
Provides Perfect Orientation of any Paint
Gives an O.E. Finish to any product
Reduces Drying Time by up to 40%

I guess it shouldn't take too long for a body shop to make up for it. Not for a guy like me though.

I am not sure about this. I have only been in the industry for 1 year but been around it for a few now so I can't really speak from that much experience. $6000 can be used in many other ways in my opinion but you never know. I would like to see this being used in person.

As far as the "Grounding the Vehicle" comment I have seen this done and have even done it at school. There are many ways to do it. Many companies offer sprayable products that help prevent static electricity. I have also seen people run chains from under the car running it to the vents on the ground if its a downdraft booth or even to the side of the booth for cross flows. It seems to work some of the time so it could be something to look into for you if this seems to be a problem for you.
