What Is E-Coat?

The earliest application of electrophoretic coating technology was primarily for industrial and automotive areas as a primer for subsequent painting.

However during the early 80’s development in resin technology enabled the application onto more aesthetic and decorative articles.

The early 80’s saw the utilisation of the E-coat process onto electroplated components for protection and tarnish resistance on, say, brass plating for example. Later developments of incorporating solvent soluble dyes provided finishes of gold onto nickel plating.

From there the process has evolved to where it is now – widely used around the world for a multiplicity of applications.
