In the 1964, KOCH Finishing Systems developed the first industrial electrocoat system in North America. Since then, we have worked closely with our clients to design and deliver E-coat systems that align with their production needs, processes, space availability, and existing equipment.
Electrocoating (E-coat) is a finishing process in which electrically charged particles are deposited from a water suspension and bonded to an oppositely charged part to achieve a desired thickness and pigmentation.
Benefits of Electrocoating Systems
Environmental Responsibility: Electrocoating systems support environmental conservation by operating without VOC’s.
Cost Efficiency: Electrocoating systems provide higher transfer efficiency, precise film build control, and low manpower requirements.
Corrosion Resistance: Electrocoating systems provide an insulated, protective barrier for substrates that are susceptible to rusting.
Compatibility: Electrocoating systems are used to coat everything from large agricultural and automotive equipment to everyday household items. E coat can applied alone, as a decorative finish, or underneath powder and liquid applications to provide an additional layer of protection and shine.
