East Midlands Coatings are leading E-Coat Suppliers. E-Coat is also known as Electrophoretic Coating, EP Coat, EDP Coating, Electro-painting, KTL etc. It refers to the high-tech process of using an electrical current to deposit a coating onto a component. The method works on the principle that “opposites attract” as the parts are positively charged, and the solution is naturally negatively charged. It is widely used in a 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
Our electrophoretic deposited coating Excellube® EC10 is a black, semi-gloss, PTFE laden coating. The PTFE content is transferred to the substrate and provides the excellent corrosion and friction reducing properties. In addition, whilst also creating a tough and durable finish.
At EMC as E-Coat suppliers, we have a very flexible approach. Therefore, we can process one off specials, pre-production samples/prototypes, small/medium sized batch runs and on-going contracts in excess of a million parts per annum. We also apply Excellube® EC10 to a number of automotive specs and are approved suppliers across the industry.
