Salt and rust resistance will determine the usable life of the part, and is often regarded as most important, but there are other issues. Additional factors include whether the component will be part of another assembly, what volume of parts will need finishing, and whether there are cosmetic standards for the part.
Many reasons for Kitchener, Ontario to choose e-coat
When a large volume of parts require salt and rust resistant finish, e-coating is often chosen for its ability to be applied in a very thin, continuous film coating across a large number of parts. It’s also frequently selected for parts that are complex and multifaceted or have deep recesses and inside surfaces. E-coating can be used as a corrosion resistant coating by itself, or as a primer base for powder coating.

Powder coating is frequently selected for functions where considerable salt and rust resistance and durability are required, for its higher levels of strength and chemical resistance. It’s favored for a uniform, thicker, unblemished finish without drips, sags, or runs.
