E-Coat

Electrophoretic, E-coating, Exceptional Results

E-coating, alternately known as electrophoretic painting, electrocoating, and electropainting, is a high-tech process that offers many of the same protective qualities as powder coating with some unique advantages.

Where powder coating uses a dry powder applied as an electrostatic spray, e-coating is a “wet” process where metal parts are immersed in a bath of paint and epoxy. An electric current is applied to attract the particles to the metal, after which the part is cured in an oven.

Advantages include:

  • Works well to coat complex shapes with hard-to-reach areas.

  • Coating thickness can be precisely controlled by controlling the current.

  • Thinner coatings are easier to achieve with an electrophoretic process.

  • Great for high-production part runs.

  • Often used as a primer to improve corrosion protection.

  • Material utilization is close to 100%.

The e-coat process was originally developed for applying an anti-corrosive coating over steel car bodies and has become an important tool for a variety of parts.
