When is Electrocoating the Best Option?

When is Electrocoating the Best Option?

Electrocoating is Best When Recommended by an Experienced Parts Coating Provider

Your manufactured parts or products are unique.

They have a specific shape, use, fit, and operational environment. No single coating method is best for all parts. Far more important than the benefits of a one type of coating over another is an experienced evaluation of your parts and their life-cycle.

The experts you need are at Great Dane. For more than a quarter century, We’ve pioneered cutting-edge results in both powder coating and electrocoating for manufacturers.

With electrocoating, also known as e-coat, metal parts are lowered into a paint bath. A positive charge is applied to the paint solution and a negative charge to the parts. Electric current draws the paint particles to the surface of the part. Adjusting the current allows for high precision in delivering an exact coating thickness.

Typical factors that call for e-coating include:

  • Complex part shapes, where powder coat / paint cannot provide a uniform coat.
  • Parts designed to be fitted with other parts or in assemblies, where a precision coating is critical.
  • Parts where quantity and turnaround time demand a fast, affordable process.
  • Parts requiring excellent 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.

When you work with Great Dane Powder Coating, the biggest advantage we offer is the expertise of our project managers and the experience of our coating teams. We help you determine the best approach to coating your industrial parts by considering their composition, contaminants from the manufacturing process, preparation needs, and the end use of the part. We take the part’s entire life-cycle into account.

Our goal is to be your partner in success, to consistently deliver the reliable and affordable results you count on to meet your manufacturing goals.
