What Is E-Coating? 

Before we cover the benefits of e-coating, it’s important to understand exactly what e-coating is.

Put simply, e-coating is a type of painting process which usually takes place in a specialist e-coat facility. It is well-known for its corrosion-resistant finish. As a result. it has grown in popularity with many industries over the years including:

  • Oil and gas
  • Automotive
  • Food
  • Aerospace

Furthermore, it is commonly in use in the automotive sector to coat metal components.

The e-coat process generally involves fully submerging the component into a tank of the paint. Depending on the e-coating company’s capabilities, the surface coating process can be applied to both small and large components – ranging from bearings through to car bodies.

Other Names For E-Coating 

E-coating can be referred to as other names too such as: electrophoretic painting, electrophoretic coating, electro coating, electropainting, and EP painting.

Automotive E Coating 

The automotive sector is a complex one, and it relies on many other sectors to support it with the safe and effective manufacturing of vehicles. However, the finishing and maintenance of these vehicles is also pivotal – which is where East Midlands Coatings can help. Our electrophoretic coating services can help the automotive industry in creating a high quality finished vehicle. With this in mind, it’s often used for car body coatings. Alongside this, our e-coating services in theUK can also assist with classic car restoration.


Vehicle coatings must be strong, durable, and reliable, and an electrophoretic coating can achieve this. If the metal surfaces of a vehicle ends up exposed to harsh elements, they can quickly corrode. As a result, the entire safety and performance of the vehicle can be jeopardised. To decrease the risk of this happening, it’s important to coat the surfaces with right protective coatings. E-coating is highly durable and is a cost-effective way to protect a vehicle’s exterior surfaces – making it a fantastic car body coating.

Corrosion Resistance 

With the ability to provide in excess of 1000 hours of salt spray resistance, e-coating is a fantastic protective coating against corrosion. By decreasing the risk of corrosion, e-coating can ensure the maximum warranty and uphold the long term quality of a vehicle.
