Electrocoating or E-coating is a process in which a metal is submerged in a water-based solution containing a paint emulsion, following which an electric voltage is applied to the metal enabling the paint emulsion to abridge on top of the part. The metal part can be painted both inside and out, wherever the liquid is able to reach a metal surface. As areas of high voltage build a coating, they take the form of insulators, thus allowing the lower voltage areas to build up. The interior of the metal part is then coated as the exterior part is completely insulated by the coating. Following the painting of the tank, a rinse tank eradicates the residual emulsion from the metal part and recycles it back to the paint tank by the process of ultrafiltration. Additionally, the E-Coat is cured by the heating process while the curing time and temperature are finalized by the epoxy, acrylic, etc.
The primary advantage of the E-coating is the ease of recuperating the E-coat that gets carried by the parts to the rinse tank of E-Coating. The E-coat rinse is regularly filtered through an ultrafiltration unit which splits the E-coat emulsion from the carrier solution and then sends it to the E-coat tank.
E-Coat Market Taxonomy
On the basis of product type, the global E-Coat market is classified into:
On the basis of application, the global E-Coat market is classified into:
Rising application in the automotive industry to fuel growth of E-coat market
With constantly evolving automotive industry, the demand for various aesthetic properties in the vehicles has been witnessing a subsequent increase. Cathodic acrylic e-coating is increasingly used across various vehicle segments of the automotive industry to provide resistance from corrosion and various other benefits. Cathodic acrylic e-coating provides higher salt spray, humidity resistance along with the cyclic corrosion resistance. Additionally, it also aids in the development of vehicles where light colors are required. Cathodic acrylic e-coat is available in a wide range of glosses and colors to escalate exterior durability and retention of gloss and color.
