DEFINITION OF TERMS

  • Air velocity – Air velocity is the speed of air inside the painting spray booth.
  • Asphalt undercoat – Asphalt undercoat is the use of seal consisting of a coating of a tar or rubber like material on the underbody of a motor vehicle to retard corrosion.
  • Baking oven – The baking oven is the equipment used to dry paint in order to attain the standard paint hardness.
  • Cathodic electrodeposition process – The CEDP or Cathodic Electro-Deposition Process is the process of immersing the unit into the ED tank of paint to highly prevent corrosion. It is also done to attain the superior paint coating up to the hidden/innermost portions of the unit.
  • De-ionized water – De-ionized water is water that lacks ions, such as cations from sodium, calcium, iron, copper and anions such as chloride and bromide. This means it has been purified from all other ions except H3O+ and OH−, but it may still contain other non-ionic types of impurities such as organic compounds. This type of water is produced using an ion exchange process. De-ionized water is similar to distilled water, in that it is useful for scientific experiments where the presence of impurities may be undesirable.
  • Degreasing – Degreasing is the process of removing grease or oil and other foreign matter on the body surface.
  • Filter cloth – A filter cloth is the material used to eliminate foreign matter such as dirt on the paint material.
  • Floor silencer – The floor silencer is a material used to reduce sound, noise, and underbody vibration of the unit.
  • Ford cup # 4 – The Ford Cup # 4 is an instrument used to measure the paint viscosity.
  • Lacquer thinner – Lacquer thinner is used to dilute, dissolve and clean up lacquer products. Typically too caustic for oil paints, lacquer thinner is often used for removing inks on metal, and adhesive residue from a variety of surfaces. Lacquer thinner is very strong and rapidly deteriorates many surfaces and fabrics. Always test in a small inconspicuous area before applying too liberally on a large surface.
  • Naptha solvent – Naptha Solvent is Any of several highly volatile, flammable liquid mixtures of hydrocarbons distilled from petroleum, coal tar, and natural gas and used as fuel, as solvents, and in making various chemicals.
  • Painting – Painting is the process, art, or occupation of coating surfaces with paint for a utilitarian or artistic effect.
  • Paint reducer – Paint reducer is used in paint mixing to attain the required viscosity.
  • Paint viscosity – Paint Viscosity is the condition or property of paint to be viscous; the resistance of paint to shear forces (and hence to flow).
  • Phosphate  application – Phosphate application is done to make phosphate serve as the base for coating and make it an integral part of metal. It also provides adhesion and coating flexibility. It also increases the resistance to corrosion.
  • Pneumatic polisher – A pneumatic polisher is an instrument activated by air pressure. It is the hand tool used in wet sanding operation of the gray primer.
  • Polishing compound – The polishing compound is the material used to smoothen the paint applied to increase the glossy appearance of the top coat paint.
  • Pressure tank – A pressure tank is a closed cylindrical steel container designed to store water under pressure. It is an equipment supplied with air pressure that is designed to contain paint used in painting application.
  • Primer paint – Primer Paint is the first or preliminary coat of paint or size applied to a surface.
  • Sealer – A sealer seals, as an undercoat of paint or varnish used to size a surface. It is also a kind of sealing material that is used to form a hard coating on a porous surface (as a coat of paint or varnish used to size a surface).
  • Spray booth – Spray Booth means a power-ventilated structure that encloses or accommodates a spraying operation so that spray vapour and residue can be controlled and exhausted.
  • Spray gun – The spray gun is a an applicator resembling a gun for applying liquid substances (as paint) in the form of a spray
  • Thermocouple – A thermocouple is a thermoelectric device used to measure temperatures accurately, especially one consisting of two dissimilar metals joined so that a potential difference generated between the points of contact is a measure of the temperature difference between the points.
  • Wet sanding – Wet sanding is a painting process wherein the gray primer is sanded with a pneumatic polisher and water.
