    u r thinking electricity as current, try to think of it as voltage

    Certain polymer powder can be infrare cured


    "Currently in use in some high- tech coating applications and very promising for commercial powder coating on flat substrates ( steel, Aluminium, MDF, paper, board) as well in sheet to sheet and/or roll to roll processes. This process can potentially be integrated in any existing coating line."

    Well, in a way, it is a current.

    You see, when carbon bonds with carbon to make graphite they only use up 3 of their 4 electrons to bond, so every atom has an electron to spare, a so-called 'free electron'. (unlike diamond, where carbon uses all 4 to make bonds).

    So these electrons are free to move (within their own plane, offcourse) and do in fact form a sort of current (they flow in the opposite direction as what we call the current, because they're negatively charged)

    This is also why metals conduct, except the molecular structure of metals allow the electrons to flow in all directions.

    I just had to, sorry

    wat u said is not wrong however we are talking about powder coating
    where most of its process involve electrostatic deposition and adhesion

    It will be a matte finish. This finish is extremely durable. I have been showing people here, I've been slaming the racket on ground, scuffing and scratching it and there's barely a scratch, they cringe, it's funny when they see no damage...

    ...but with my luck, the finish won't be as durable as the prototypes I have now.

    Anyway, working on it now. Will know when the final production arrives...

    ...3 weeks.

    ..that's like the ultimate quality control testing for a racket...Have you:
    1. Tried dragging and scraping the racket on a bed of fine gravels??..or in the parking lot??..
    2. Driven your large SUV over the racket to see how strong it can stand the pounding/heavy weight??..

    Can't wait to see the final product in abt 3+ weeks and do my own QC testing..

    Chris, you're nuts, you're not getting near any of the new rackets.

    This thread is getting quite interesting and technical. Maybe too technical as I learned just last week how to make fire. Sounds like I better have a sale on some of my current rackets as it looks like more inventory may be on the way.

    Well, yes, that's true.

    But the 'classic way' to powdercoat is to make the object negatively charged with the positive 'paint parts' sticking to it. So it can only be done when the material itself does conduct the current through the system, making the paint particles stick nice and tidy.
    So, I wasn't off-topic, but looking back I didn't mention why it's usefull for carbon to conduct at all, which is somewhat silly...

    However, like you said, you can nowadays even powdercoat paper, so maybe the entire process has evolved a bit

    "That the new Panda Ultra?"

    "Yep"

    "How does it feel?"

    "Like a hand cannon."

    "How does it hit?"

    "Cooler is still bleeding from the last smash I hit at him."

    Think Pete may be in jail as we haven't heard from him after he said he was going to try the Ultra. Does anyone work at the morgue in his area and seen a body with feathers sticking out. Wonder how they would write that up in the police report and what you would be charged with. Hopefully he can use the racket in his cell hitting birds off the walls.

    Nah, he's usually smart enough to play with me and not against me.

    Though my focus is on golf at the moment, having a new ultra in had will have me thinking badminton sooner than later.

    maybe he is still waiting in the emergency ward to fix his arm given our healthcare system I heard they dont allow cellphone or wireless surfing in the hospital
