E-Coating Keeps Tolerances to Spec for Hamilton, Ontario
The choice to use E-Coating for its ability to achieve a high-quality, low-cost finish is one consideration for Hamilton, Ontario industries. Another equally important advantage is E-Coating’s ability to preserve dimensional integrity so parts will operate as designed.
Electrode position a.k.a E-Coating
The process of Electrodeposition or E-Coating is based upon the principle that opposite electrical charges attract each other. To take advantage of this attraction, electrical current is used to deposit paint onto a part by giving the part an electrical charge, and the paint the opposite electrical charge. When the metal part is immersed in a bath of oppositely charged paint particles the paint is drawn to the metal part to form a continuous film over every surface, in every nook and cranny, until the e-coating reaches the required thickness. We use a Cathodic system to apply a negative (-) electrical charge to the metal part, and a positive (+) electrical charge to the paint to achieve a finish with superior durability to an Anodic process where the part is positively(+) charged.
