Parts coatings serve a variety of functions. Today’s coatings are designed to help with wear resistance, friction reduction, and protection against caustic agents, as well as delivering a pleasing and long-lasting aesthetic appearance.
Among coating technologies like paint, polyurethanes, zinc primers, and chromate conversion, electrophoretic coating stands out as a growing technique embraced by many industries.
According to Polaris Market Research, electrophoretic coating enjoyed a global market share of $3.88 billion in 2021, and has a projected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.5% for the rest of the decade. One big reason for that is that in addition to providing a cost-effective, abrasion resistant, uniform coating, e-coating delivers superior corrosion resistance.
Many industries produce products that end up in challenging environments. Whether it’s the average car dealing with road salt in winter, agricultural equipment dealing with shed storage rust, or HVAC systems enduring the stress of everyday use, corrosive forces are everywhere.
E-coating is very resistant to damage from scratches and general wear and is superior to paint applications for preventing exposure to water vapor that can cause rust and corrosion.
E-coating is highly valued among manufacturers of fire trucks and emergency gear, where everything from vehicle bodies to complex parts can be expected to encounter corrosive chemicals, harsh environments, extreme fluctuations of temperature, and other challenges in emergency conditions.
Manufacturers of emergency vehicles know, e-Coat delivers superior corrosion and chemical resistance, while providing an excellent primer surface for powder coating or paint of any color or finish.

Another key industry that relies on electrocoating for corrosion resistance is the HVAC industry.
Heating and Air Conditioning systems work in corrosive environments every day. Average systems are exposed to humidity, salt, acidic agents in the atmosphere, and temperature stresses. Many HVAC systems have to survive in commercial environments, where they are exposed to a variety of industrial contaminants and emissions.
Corrosion is a common cause of failure in HVAC equipment, as it affects heat exchangers and condenser coils, which are difficult to coat.
Electrocoating has the answer. Because e-coating is applied via immersion in an electrically charged bath, it is excellent for coating complex shapes, like the coils in HVAC units. And because coating thickness can be controlled so precisely, the exact balance needed between protection and heat exchange performance can be achieved every time.

Because e-coating delivers exceptional corrosion protection, the industrial applications go far beyond HVAC, agricultural equipment, and emergency gear. Wherever manufactured items face corrosive environments, e-coating plays a part in extending the service life and surface appearance of materials at risk for corrosion.
Additional applications include: military, maritime, automotive, mining, recreation, electrical equipment, construction, and factory floor machinery.
