Advantages of E-Coating

Durable and Lasting

E-Coated PartsE-Coating or Electro Coating is a process of immersing metal parts in a fluid bath where an electric charge draws paint or epoxy particles in the fluid to the surface of the part. The process is similar to electroplating metal.

In E-Coating, an even, continuous film of paint is drawn to the part, and the thickness is controlled by varying the current and duration of immersion. Used in a variety of industries, including automotive manufacture, electro coating is especially useful in working with complex shapes and high-quality parts. Benefits of E-Coating include:

  • Durable, lasting finishes. E-Coating is renowned for its ability to stand up to outdoor weathering and indoor environments where harsh chemicals may be present, as well as being chip resistant.
  • Complete coverage and consistent thickness. E-Coating works well with complex shapes, allowing for better coverage and thinner coats than other methods.
  • Efficient coating usage. E-Coating can be used for higher volume production runs and uses paint more efficiently than spray techniques, delivering a high-quality finish with almost zero waste.
  • Excellent primer. Good inter-coat adhesion with most topcoats makes E-Coating a great primer for almost all ferrous applications.
  • Environmentally friendly. A water-based, immersion technology, E-Coating produces no Hazardous Air Pollutants or Volatile Organic Compounds. It is OSHA and EPA compliant.

As with powder coating, once parts are coated they must be allowed to cure in an oven set to between 180 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on the coating and the temperature tolerance of the part.

At Great Dane Powder Coating, Inc. we’ve invested in building a 6,000 square foot, state-of-the-art E-Coating facility. We are able to handle large volume runs and provide quick turnaround time.
