Coating options for salt and rust resistance
There are many performance and application requirements to consider to establish the optimum finishing method for manufactured parts. Salt and rust resistance is the property that will determine the usable life of the part, and is often considered most important, but there are other factors. Whether the component will be part of another assembly, how many pieces will need finishing, and what are the cosmetic requirements of the part, are additional considerations.
Primary e-coating properties for Sarnia Lambton, Ontario
The advantage offered by e-coating is that it can be applied on large volumes of product in a very thin, continuous film coating. It’s favoured for its ability to conform to multifaceted parts and provide salt and rust resistance inside deep recesses and inside surfaces. It can be used by itself, as a corrosion resistant coating, or as a primer coat for powder.
Features of powder coat for Sarnia Lambton, Ontario and surrounding area
Powder coating epoxies have great salt and rust resistance, are very durable and can be better for some functions that require added strength and chemical resistance. Powder coating is generally known to be thicker with a consistent, clean finish with no runs, drips or sags.
E-coating and powder coating can each provide uniformity, beautiful appearance, and excellent corrosion protection. Both finishes are solvent free, environmentally friendly, and do not emit harmful VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) into the environment.
