Solving Wide-Body E-Coat Immersion Problems
Altec Industries in Burnsville, N.C., a manufacturer of heavy truck bodies and related equipment, added e-coat to its finishing operation and—through the proper design and execution of an electrocoat/liquid spray topcoat paint system —addressed issu...
A “Bizarre” Approach: Using Moisture to Cure CARC Coatings
When veteran inventors Mike Bunnell and Daryl Bruischat put their minds together to build a better mousetrap for the drying and curing of waterborne CARC paints, they both hoped to come up with a system that might change the industry somewhat.
Power Up to Cut Down on Energy
Electrocoat rack stripping is a substantial cost to coaters, so it is imperative to use practices that reduce high energy requirements and identify techniques to minimize these costs that contribute to the electrical contact defects.
Taking the Guesswork Out of E-coat
Fast, accurate simulation of E-coat paint processes.
Expanding on E-Coat
Electrocoat products and processes continue to evolve, with development focused on lower energy use, very low VOC content and methods to reduce cost per applied square foot. The following is a primer on how a combination of new materials and good pr...
