5 reasons to use e-coating treatments

E-coating treatments are popular for all sorts of projects worldwide. Protective and decorative finishes are used in lots of different industries and depending on your requirements, you may be considering electrophoretic coating for your surface.

E-coating is a paint treatment that once applied to a surface will provide it with a highly durable protective surface layer. However, if you’re still not sure whether it’s the right treatment for you – here are five reasons why E-coating treatments could be ideal for your project:

E-coating provides a long-lasting finish

Surfaces that have undergone the e-coat process have incredibly long-lasting protection. The process is ideal for projects that require corrosion resistance, as the treatment provides in excess of 1,000 hours of salt spray resistance. Due to its excellent corrosion protection, E-coating is used in a wide range of applications such as car manufacturing, trains, signage, and commercial sectors.

Speedy E-Coating treatments

Here at Pym and Wildsmith, our e-coat treatments are very fast and efficient. The components are placed onto a track before undergoing any necessary preliminary treatments. Once the surfaces are cleaned and prepared, they’ll be dipped into a tank full of the e-coat paint until the entire surface is covered before the oven cure takes place. With our highly advanced equipment and facilities, we can make sure everything is completed to the highest of standards and with a fast turnaround and minimal disruption.

Maximum coverage for your project

E-coating UK services usually stick to the same sort of application process. With this in mind, we can always ensure full coverage of your project every time. Due to the surfaces being completely submerged into the paint, the process can offer 100% coverage of the component – even on hard to reach areas such as bends and cavities. This is a factor that makes it stand out amongst other coatings that cannot guarantee these high levels of coverage – such as powder coating.

A clean finish every time

The e-coating application process also means that your project will benefit from a uniform coating thickness. With superior edge coverage alongside a consistent and even coating, the process is not only ideal for protection but can also be used to enhance the aesthetics of a surface too.

Compatible with other coatings

E-coating is also compatible with additional coating technologies that can be used to enhance the paint’s performance even further. Although the standard process is a single-coat application, we can add a second coat of powder or liquid topcoat too – which can provide even more protection and durability to the overall finish.
