EMC’s new E-Coat process video…..

E-Coat Process

E-coat (otherwise known as Electrophoretic Coating, EP Coat, EDP Coating, Electropainting, KTL e-coat process etc.) is the high-tech process of using an electrical current to deposit a coating onto a component. The process works on the principle that “opposites attract” as the parts are positively charged, and the solution is naturally negatively charged. It is used in a wide variety of industries and due to the controllability of thickness it is ideal for the automotive sector.

There are a number of advantages to coating your parts in our Electrophoretic coating Excellube® EC10 which include:

 Excellent corrosion resistance
 Outstanding low friction performance
 100% coverage – ideal for intricate and complex components
 Thickness controllability – a uniform coating is easier to achieve than other application methods
 Can be used as a primer to multiple top coat systems or as a stand-alone single coat system
 Decorative and cosmetic – Excellube EC10 is a black glossy coating that looks fantastic
✓ Multiple metals can be coated

How does the e-coating process work?
The e-coating process is a very simple yet effective process and here at East Midlands Coatings, we can offer the service with extremely fast turnaround times. First, we will make sure any relevant pre-treatment takes place before going on to the e-coat line for cleaning and pre-treatments. Followed by submersion into the paint tank. It is essential all substrates are clean with a paint/powder-free surface so that the paint can be applied with an even coverage, therefore optimising its performance.
