Disclosed are processes for spray coating of grafted VITONB onto a fuser subsystem roll. These are: 1) electrostatic spraying, a process where the atomized spray material and the piece part to be coated are of opposite charge; 2) air assisted electrostatic spray, a subset of 1) that employs air as the atomizer; 3) airless electrostatic spray, same as 2), with exception that the spray material is itself pressurized and forced through a small orifice for atomization; and 4) rotary atomized electrostatic spray, same as 3), with exception that the material is charged and then dripped onto a rotating circular disk, atomized and thrown off the rotor and onto the part.
