E-coating is ideal for parts that require a tough, corrosion-resistant finish. Metal regularly exposed to harsh environments are great candidates for e-coating.
Corrosion isn’t just ugly and expensive; it’s dangerous. It challenges our safety from affected roads, buildings, and bridges. Prevention becomes essential
The price of architectural designs near an ocean is corrosion. Disregarding environmental factors is a costly and perhaps catastrophic mistake.
A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. When powder coating architectural steel, that chain becomes much stronger by preventing oxidation.
When comparing e-coatings to a-coatings, there's very little daylight between the two processes. Turns out, the main difference turns out to be something small.
Powder Coating is one of the most popular methods of protecting metals. It's cheaper, lasts longer, and is environmentally friendly.
The A-Coating process resembles an e-coat. Both are excellent at protecting metals, but the process is the main difference between the two.
Electric current combined with the dissolved metal cations equals Electroplating. This is the third of a series comparing methods of protective metal finishing processes.
What do alchemy, Frankenstein, and a frog have in common? Galvanization!
Anodizing is an excellent solution for protecting metal because of the adhesion offered. It doesn't flake or lose its luster, making it a favorite for many industries.
CARC is the specially developed, durable, non-absorbent, and highly resisting paint with a myriad of benefits commonly applied to military vehicles and equipment.
Rust is an insidious and invisible foe but fought using the right tools, a devastating problem for businesses of all shapes and sizes.
CARC is a paint applied to military vehicles and ensures their metal surfaces remain resistant to oxidation and puncturing by chemical or biological agents.
Using a gravelometer test, under SAE J400 standards, creates a fair comparison between different topcoats supplied by different finishers.
CARC, or Chemical Agent Resistant Coating, is a critical component of military hardware. This article explains what CARC is and why it's so important.
A two-coat topcoat is highly effective at hiding surface imperfections. A third coat provides no additional protection, making it unnecessary to add one.
A two-coat process, including e-coating, provides better rust and corrosion protection than other metal finishing systems. By not having a basecoat, the longevity of your component is shortened.
