E-COAT

Leading Electrophoretic Coating (E-Coat) Suppliers

E-coat (otherwise known as Electrophoretic Coating, EP Coat, EDP Coating, Electropainting, KTL etc.) 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 Experience

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 whilst also creating a tough and durable finish.

Our experience

Our flexible approach means that 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.
