E-Coat Top Coat

We have an advantage over many of our competitors in our finishing process. Using a single conveyor system, we're able to e-coat and topcoat components ranging in complexity from simple to complex.

When using an e-coat as part of a two-coat system, components are protected for more extended periods. Look at the images below. Using the slider, compare the e-coat perforations to the perforations without an e-coat.
