Electrocoating Heavy Duty Equipment

Electrocoating Heavy Duty Equipment

Exceptional Coating Durability

Electrocoating is an excellent choice for manufacturers of heavy-duty equipment, including agricultural, construction, trucking, and military applications.

Heavy equipment is expensive and must stand up to the rigors of weather, time, and demanding assignments. When coating body panels, engine parts, suspensions, accessories, and more, e-coating is the modern choice to keep new equipment free of corrosion and durable in the face of harsh work environments.

Electrocoating uses epoxy particles suspended in a fluid bath. A thin, protective coating is applied to a metal part by passing electric current through an electrolytic solution. The electric current attracts the coating particles in the liquid and deposits them onto the surface of the substrate. One big advantage is the ability to coat complex shapes with a precise coating thickness.

Farming and Fire Trucks

E-coating is often used as a primer before powder coating the substrate as a finishing application. The combination of e-coat and powder coat is unbeatable in its durability and longevity for the most important applications.

Great Dane e-coat and powder coatings are created for agricultural equipment manufacturers who are concerned about the long-term durability and appearance of their machines. For manufacturers delivering tractors, rollers, and spreaders, we offer cutting-edge agricultural coating solutions that help to maximize production efficiency.

Fire trucks and emergency medical vehicles are another market that benefits from the e-coating process. These vehicles are put through stress and rough physical circumstances every day.  With electrocoating, scratches and bumps don’t become points of corrosion or places where the paint starts peeling.

E-coating also protects against road salt in winter, as well as the harsh chemicals often found at the sites of accidents and fires.

From farming to fire trucks, electrocoating helps the most important equipment retain its showroom look and prevent premature corrosion.

Military & Defense Applications

Electrocoated products are used on military vehicles and parts because of their excellent corrosion resistance, edge coverage, and ability to efficiently coat the most complex shapes.

Military cabs, frame rails, and body panels are excellent candidates for coating with electrocoat. Our epoxy primers have excellent adhesion to a variety of substrates and are excellent bases for powder coat topcoats.

Today, the United States Army and the United States Marine Corps have both adopted the electrocoating (e-Coat) process as their premier coating system for corrosion protection.

Regardless of your heavy equipment coating needs, you can take confidence that when e-coating is chosen by the Department of Defense, it will work for you application too.

When compared to other coating systems, e-coating was found to deliver remarkable benefits:

  • Lower applied cost
  • Higher corrosion protection performance
  • Significant environmental benefits
