Elecoat Coating Composition

There are two methods for Elecoat: anion electrodeposition coating, where the coated object is the anode,and cation electrodeposition coating, where the coated object is the cathode. The method is chosen based on the type of material used and the purpose of the coating.

Features of Elecoat

Elecoat is a type of surface treatment using electrodeposition coating technology. This technology is near-perfect when compared to spray painting, electrostatic painting, and powder coating, with great coating workability, uniform thickness, smoothness, and the ability to cover the edges of the coating.

1.Highly Resistant to Corrosion and Weather
Using a coating composed primarily of an acrylic resin that is highly corrosion resistant, a coating that is highly resistant to corrosion and weather is achieved. This is done through a viaduct hardening method and a unique coating process.
2.Many Color Variations
The film is transparent with minimal discoloration. Colorization utilizing metallic luster materials is possible,with good pigment dispersability and uniform electrodeposition.
3.Wide Variety of Materials
In addition to general plating, an electrodeposition coating can be applied to other plating and on top of conductive vapor deposition coatings.
4.Good Bathing Stability
With good bathing stability, bathing management is simple.
5.Multiple Coating Treatments
By combing Elecoat and other surface coating treatment
6.Development Towards Function
A non-adhesive fluorine electrodeposition process with low friction.
A polyimide electrodeposition process with superior heat and electrical insulation.
A negative photoresist electrodeposition process for masking of partial plating or etching

All Elecoat electrodeposition coatings are lead free.
