Environmentally Friendly Electrocoating

Environmentally Friendly Electrocoating

The Coating Industry’s Green Solution

Often, when industry hears the terms “green” and “environmentally friendly,” thoughts of cost, complications, and sacrifices in quality come to mind. When coating parts using electrophoretic methods, the green choice is demonstrably the superior choice — on all counts.

E-coating, also known as electrodeposition, uses electrical current to deposit paint on a surface. The result is a reliable, corrosion resistant coating that is also chip, scratch, and abrasion resistant. Best of all, it’s an affordable technology with great turn-around time and a precise coating consistency from order to order and batch to batch.

The proven results that electrocoating delivers would be in demand in any competitive environment. One remarkable bonus is that e-coating is also an environmentally friendly “green” technology.

What Does it Mean to be Green?


How environmentally friendly is e-coating?

  • No HAPs or VOCs. E-coating results in little or no “Hazardous Air Pollutants” and “Volatile Organic Compounds.”
  • E-coating is RoHS, OSHA, and EPA compliant.
  • Virtually no waste and a low carbon footprint.

The durability of e-coating is a key factor in it being environmentally friendly too. Long lasting, corrosion resistant parts mean less worn parts making their way into landfills, improved parts quality and customer satisfaction, and lower life-cycle energy use.

The future of electrocoating holds even more promise with the use of plant proteins and the development of organic paints, soon to create a cycle of renewable resources for electrocoating.

What Other Advantages Does e-Coating Have?

Electrocoating is affordable, reliable, and allows for efficient workflow and fast turnaround.  What other benefits does e-coat deliver?

  • Great for complex part shapes, where other methods cannot provide a uniform coat.
  • Excellent for parts designed to be fitted with other parts or in assemblies, where a precision coating is critical.
  • E-coating delivers corrosion resistance at low coating thickness.

Electrocoating is also used as a primer coat for powder coating, a process that results in an extremely durable, chip and scratch resistant, weather and corrosion resistant coating for the toughest applications.
