E-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:
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.
