Versatile solutions in salt and rust resistant coatings
When establishing a finish for manufactured parts, there are many performance and application considerations to determine the most suitable method. While the first among these may be salt and rust resistance, other factors include whether the component will see further assembly, what production volume will require finish, and the cosmetic appearance requirements of the product.
E-coating properties for Windsor-Essex, Ontario
The primary e-coating advantage is that it can be applied in a very thin, continuous film coating on large volumes of product. It is also a frequent choice for complex parts, favoured for its ability to conform to multifaceted parts and providing salt and rust resistance inside deep recesses and inside surfaces. E-coating can be used as a corrosion resistant coating by itself or as a primer coat for powder.
Powder coat advantages offered to Windsor-Essex and surrounding areas
Powder coating is generally recognized for its thicker, consistent, clean finish with no runs, drips or sags. Powder coating epoxies have great resistance to salt and rust, are very durable, and can be better for some applications that require more strength and chemical resistance.
Both electrocoating and powder coating deliver uniformity, beautiful appearance, and superior corrosion protection while being environmentally friendly and solvent free, and do not emit harmful VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) into the environment.
The advantages and disadvantages are application dependent. At Onbelay Automotive we are experts who can discuss your specific situation and help you decide which salt and rust resistant finish would work best for your Windsor-Essex, Ontario manufactured parts.
