The Electrophoretic Coating (e-coat) process is widely used in the automotive and other industries for corrosion protection as it offers the ability to deposit a uniform coating over an entire component.
It is a complete submersion coating process starting with degreasing and zinc phosphating and then e-coat.
The e-coat process can be used to produce a basic coating in its own right by giving excellent corrosion protection to components not requiring a more decorative finish. It can also be used in conjunction with a powder coated finish on components that need a higher degree of protection and a more robust and aesthetic finish.
The process we use can obtain paint thickness ranging from 15 microns up to 30 microns as per customer requirements. The main advantage of using E-coat is that it is useful for any aggressive environment egautomotive, marine, areas of industrial pollution and or high area of humidity.
