Spray

How it works: Wet coating is loaded into a spray gun and, under pressure, atomized as it is sprayed onto the surface of the item. This is done by either handheld spray guns or automated with a grouping of spray guns controlled to spray as pans pass by them on the production line.

Uses

Moderate, upper-moderate and gourmet-market-level cookware and bakeware. Cookware interiors, exteriors, and handles. Bakeware. Small electrics, gadgets, cutlery. Advantages

Durability: Because the coating is atomized, it is applied to the surface of the pan in microscopic droplets which, when cured, create a bit more dense and more durable coating. Aesthetics: Properly sprayed products have a smoother, cleaner appearance. Disadvantages

Overspray: Typically, 35% to 50% of the coating is lost during application. Slow production: Even the best automated spray lines can process no more than 1,500 pieces per hour - half that of other application methods.
