What is Electrocoat?
Electrocoat (E-Coat) is a technology used worldwide to achieve high quality, low cost finishes at a level of efficiency and environmental compliance no other finishing method approaches. The performance advantages along with reduced finishing cost by using e-coating have made it a growing technology that will continue long into the future as new uses and technologies are developed.
Advantages of Electrocoating:
Better Utilization – film thickness is easy to control and is much less variable than other types of coating.
Lower Labor Cost – due to enhanced efficiencies of the processes, there is less labor needed for touch-up personnel, paint mixers, strip tank operators, etc..
Lower Reject Rates – The number of rejects can be lowered due to the total coverage and uniform film thickness and control, as well as the ability to paint hard-to-reach areas with a single application.
High Transfer Efficiency – The transfer efficiency for e-coating is nearing the 100% mark, due to recycling of the paint particles.
Total Coverage – compared to most painting processes, E-coat paint offers superior paint coverage even in the most difficult areas of the products. No other coating system can offer the corrosion protection of E-coat as a result of its ability to offer total coverage.
Lower Material Cost – E-coating is the most efficient paint technology available. With extremely high transfer efficiency, there is very little waste of most materials.
High Productivity – E-Coating allows for dense part racking, while still achieving an even film build.
Our Electrocoating (E-Coating) production line, pre-treat, paint and curing processes were all designed to enable us to meet even the toughest testing specifications including >1,000 hours salt spray corrosion tests.
