Choosing the most suitable salt and rust resistance
Many factors influence the selection of the most suitable coating for Southern Ontario manufactured parts. The most important performance consideration is often resistance to salt and rust, because this has the greatest potential to influence the useable life of the part. Other concerns play a part in the coating decision such as: what volume of parts will need finishing, will components be part of more complex assemblies, and are there appearance standards to be met.
Sometimes the optimal choice for Southern Ontario is e-coat
E-coating has an advantage over some other eco-friendly coatings in that it can be applied in a very thin, continuous film coating on large volumes of product. Another benefit that makes e-coat a recurring choice for complex parts, is the ability to conform to multifaceted parts and provide salt and rust resistance on inside surfaces and inside deep recesses. It can provide corrosion resistance by itself, or double as a primer coat for powder.
Why powder coat could be Southern Ontario’s best option
Generally recognized for positive appearance characteristics, powder coat has as a thicker, clean finish that resists drips or sags. It may also be chosen for functions that require higher performance in salt and rust resistance and durability, and more strength and chemical resistance.
Benefits comparable for powder coat and e-coating are ability to deliver uniformity, beautiful appearance, and superior corrosion protection. Similarly, both are eco-friendly, solvent free, and VOC free.
Advantages and disadvantages of each finish option are dependent upon the application.
