Spectrum electrostatic spray systems employ the same principals of physics used by auto body paint shops and photocopy machines to assign a positive or negative electrical charge to the spray droplets as they pass through the spray nozzle. Unlike conventional spray droplets, which contain an equal number of positively charged protons and negatively charged electrons, spray droplets emitted through a Spectrum electrostatic system receive a positive or negative charge from electrodes surrounding each nozzle. As the charged spray droplets approach the target vegetation, they induce an opposite charge on leaf and stem surfaces, thus activating electrostatic forces and attracting the charged droplets to both the upper and under leaf surfaces. Spectrum electrostatic improves spray performance.
