E-Coat means Electro Coating. Automotive, appliance and many other products use e-coating to prevent rust on the products.
E-coat consists of several sub-processes:
- Preparation – a cleaning process.
- The coating process itself – submerging the part into a container which holds the coating bath or solution and applying direct current electricity through the EPD bath using electrodes.
- After deposition, the component is rinsed.
- Finally, the part is baked. This allows the coating to become smooth and continuous.
YKTA will use ecoating to protect components that we produce for our customers. The e-coat process produces a basic coating, giving excellent corrosion protection to components.
