What is E-Coat?
E-coating – also known as Electrophoretic Painting, Electrocoating, Electropainting etc. – is a high-tech process that has been developed over the last fifty years. The E-coat process was originally developed for applying an anti-corrosive coating over steel car bodies. Users recognize E-coat’s ability to paint high production volumes of parts with a unique combination of decoration and protection. Material utilization is close to 100%. This creates high production efficiency coupled with advanced quality results.
How E-Coating Works
The coating materials (resins, pigments, additives, etc.) are dispersed in water and held in a bath. The parts to be coated are immersed in the solution and an electrical current is passed through the bath using the parts as an electrode.
Electrical activity around the surface of the parts makes the resin directly in contact become insoluble in water. This causes a layer of resin – including any pigments and additives present – to adhere to the surface of the parts. The coated parts can then be removed from the bath and the coating is cured by baking in an oven to make it hard and durable.
Advantages of the Electropainting Process
Immersion process: All of the surfaces in contact with the solution are coated. This means that even the most complicated shapes can be completely coated.
Electrical deposition method: The application of electricity causes the resins and other ingredients to deposit onto the parts’ surface. Controlling the electrical current enables a predictable and consistent thickness of coating to be applied.
Water based process: There are no flammability problems during application. Also, there is no need to dry parts after water-based cleaning or pretreatment processes.
