The Benefits of Ecoating in the Automotive Sector

The Benefits of Ecoating in the Automotive Sector

Durable, Reliable, Corrosion Resistant

Vehicle parts coatings must be strong, durable and corrosion resistant. Coatings for both interior and exterior components directly affect part lifetimes, part effectiveness (especially heat exchange coils), and attractiveness over time.

Today’s best choice for many vehicle coatings is electrophoretic coating, also called e-coating.

E-coating is a process where a substrate, such as automotive parts, are dipped in an electrically charged bath. In electrophoretic coating, a thin, corrosion resistant film is deposited on a metal surface. This creates a high-quality finish superior to many competitive processes.

The electrocoating bath uses paint particles suspended in a fluid. An oppositely charged part is lowered into the paint bath and the particles are drawn to the metal surface. When applied correctly, electrocoating produces finishes that are extremely precise, smooth, and attractive.

Ecoating works in a way similar to electroplating, which has been used effectively in auto manufacture for many decades. As with electroplating, the protective film deposited in e-coating can be controlled with great precision by adjusting variables like current density and time in bath.

Recent advances in ecoating include primers made of low voltage organic compounds, UV protective materials, and improved edge coating.
