This process submerges the part in the Pretreatment and E-Coat Paint stages.
Therefore, E-coat provides superior coverage in areas that conventional spray painting can’t reach.
E-Coat: Black Cathodic Epoxy (PPG Powercron 6000CX) is designed as a primer, or an internal finish coat with excellent corrosion and chemical resistance. This coating should not be used as a finish coat for exterior products unless it has been top coated. Our e-coating system can produce a Class “A” finish. When needed, we can also provide both powder and liquid topcoats.
Our E-Coat Capabilities Are:
Ware Package: 48″ high x 36″ wide x 96″ long
Weight: 1,000 lbs per load bar
Coating Thickness: .0006-.0011
12-Stage Pretreatment (Acid Pickle and Zinc Phosphate)
Corrosion Resistance: 1,000 hour salt spray
How Does E-Coating Work?
E-coating is based on the principle that “opposites attract.” Cathodic electro-coating is the process where the product to be coated is given a negative charge and attracts the positively-charged paint molecules. The paint molecules are drawn to the metal, forming an even, continuous film over it’s entire surface, including edges, corners, and enclosed areas.
E-coat is the standard for automotive, defense, agricultural, appliance, and recreational industries. It gives superior coverage, adhesion, and corrosion resistance.
