Pope is right, the trash talk on this site is getting pretty bad. I used to come here because the community was fantastic and I loved reading about all the little projects people had going on. But come on, people are still new to this game, believe it or not, and I think we should encourage them to keep moving forward rather than shame them into giving up.

To be fair 01marc is new to the game of powder coating. He could put the part in the oven at 0deg for five seconds and that would dissipate a static charge to ground just as effectively. It's not his fault he suggested putting a cheap plastic helmet in the oven at 100deg. what type of brush and what type of paint are you using. It has a lot to do with it especially if you are using cheap brushes with acrylics. Sable or other animal hair performs miles better than the generic crap plastic hobby brushes.

Fuck off, I've been doing this for a living for 10 years and am considered an expert in the field. Do you really think 10 minutes at 100 will hurt your helmet? Is the helmet really plastic, or is it fiberglass, and how the fuck would you know? A fiberglass helmet or even one made of plastic would surely take 100 temps which it may see in normal use.

If you're not discussing the actual question than leave the thread. Enough bullshit.

Thanks.

Bit of an old thread that went south, but what I would have done is try to ground it with a copper wire. I used vapor barrier plastic to surround my small painting setup. I had to use a copper wire to rid that of static. If it's getting noticeably bad I pick up the wire, which I left copper strands on the end of like a fan and rub it around the plastic. It seems to work.

Not a bad idea.  You can also find cheap grounding straps at most electronic places.  It goes around your wrist and has a wire that will clip to a metal ground.  They are used in electronics repair shops to keep from blowing up sensitive components.

We had issues with a belt sander at work shocking people with the static discharge. We sprayed the sander with static guard for clothes and it worked great. I'm not sure if would effect the paint,  but you could give it a try,  it's not working now anyway.
