How electrocoating works
After the components have been pretreated with zinc phosphate or Oxsilan, the e-coat is applied. The component is dipped in a bath with a waterborne dispersion (consisting of cross-linking agents and binders) for approximately two to four minutes. Then a direct voltage of 250 to 500 volts is applied to the component and a counter electrode located in the bath. Electrically charged paint particles are deposited on the component and form an approximately 20 micrometer thick protective coating. Its primary job is to provide corrosion protection.
