ELECTRO-COATING VS POWDER COATING
Electrocoating (or e-coating, electropainting, electrophoretic lacquering, CED [cathodic electrodeposition) is a very different process from powder coating.
During the Electro-coating process a metal object is submerged into a water based paint solution that is electrically charged. During the process a protective paint layer is deposited onto the object, which results in a durable non corrosive finish.
In powder coating, the part is just electrostatically charged so it will attract the powder that is sprayed in its direction. The powder sticks by this electrostatic attraction. Then, when the parts are put into an oven, the powder melts and flows to cover the part with a skin of paint.
Finishers choose electrocoating to provide their products with a durable, lasting coating. And because ecoat can be used as a primer, top coat or both, and also with other types of coatings, the versatility is value-adding.
