paint (E-Coat) technology is particularly advantageous
for the application of a uniform organic coating
formed on fabricated metal components. Unlike
sprayed or dipped coatings, an electrophoretic
coating is of uniform thickness on even the
most complex shapes, including the edges. The
size of components and parts is not in itself
limiting; motor vehicle manufacturers routinely
coat car chassis and other parts for corrosion
protection with electrophoretic paint.
paint coatings are free of sags, beads and runs.
These coatings exhibit excellent salt spray and
humidity resistance, high throwing power, good
hardness and flexibility. [top]
E-coat is commonly used through out the automotive
industry where high corrosion resistance is
required on sub frame components such as steering
racks, suspension mounts, chassis fixtures and
auxiliary attachments such as tow bars.
