Excellent Productivity

The low-temperature curing properties of the AquaEC 6100 primers helps to reduce energy costs. Its high throw power delivers optimized film distribution across all surfaces. This Axalta product is also an industry leader in bake loss, resulting is less film shrinkage and increased coverage per gallon of primer. The new tin-free technology used to formulate AquaEC 6100 makes it both environmentally friendly and Axalta’s most advanced E-Coat.

How Does e-Coating Work?

E-coating is when a rack of small parts are lowered into a liquid bath where an electric current is applied to the parts, drawing paint or epoxy out of the liquid solution and onto the part.

The end result is a durable, chip and corrosion resistant coating with a superior result that extends part life in even the harshest environments.

e-Coating has advantages when either very precise or very thin coatings are needed, and especially where parts have complicated topographies or hard to reach areas.
