Generally speaking wet paint is used where a durable high quality finish is required on visible surfaces that the end user comes into contact with. For example applications can range from machined front panels for high end audio equipment through to car bodywork. Finishes are wide and varied and range from high gloss through to matte, and there is also the ability to have soft feel rubberised and suede textures incorporated.
Wet paint is commonly applied using a spray painting method, which involves utilising an air-pressurised spray gun. The air gun is made up of three main parts; the nozzle, paint basin and air compressor. Paint is mixed with compressed air and when the trigger is activated a fine spray is released. Usually a coating will be applied by hand, although the process can also be automated.
