Course Content
Module 1 – Static Electricity and Materials Affected

This module consist of three topics, static electricity overview, static electricity in materials, and static during refinishing. The static electricity overview will discuss the fundamentals of static electricity, balance of charge, Ions and Ionization and a demonstatration creating static. The Static electricity in materials topic discusses the materials and how they are affected by static. The materials include, aluminum, steel, composites, plastics, paints, and metallics. Static during refinishing will explain static attraction and repelling of particles, how paint jobs are affected how to check, and eliminate static.

Module 2 – Neutralizing Static, Tools and Product Use

This module consists of three topics that will explain how to eliminate static using various methods. A series of videos will show these methods that includes the use of anti-static sprays, anti-static wipes, and anti-static guns.
