What can we do in2hours?

Cathodic Electrocoating (E-coat)

1. PARTS LOADING

Our quick handed loaders are the first step to get all the parts prepared and loaded onto a conveyer.

2. PRETREATMENT

Parts head up the line for an important pretreatment. Dip and spray cleaning stages remove any unwanted dust or debris particles, followed by our Zinc Phosphate System to prepare the surface for E-coating.

3. E-COAT BATH

Our water based cathodic electrocoating bath is next. Within the bath, electro fields create an atmosphere for the pigment to adhere to the metal component and creates a film on the material surface.

4. POST RINSES

Post rinse stages remove any excess paint pigments on the surface.

5. CURING

We offer low temperature curing

process to laminate the film for the maximum performance.

6. UNLOADING/INSPECTION

Components get unloaded from the conveyor and go through inspection process to assure Quality of E-Coat.
