Choosing the right electroplating method is essential for achieving optimal results and minimizing the risk of damage to the finished product. Two of the most commonly applied processes for plating multiple workpieces are barrel and rack plating. Each offers several advantages, as well as points the plater and customer must consider when determining the most appropriate method for their project.
In a recent newsletter article entitled The Industrial Uses of E-Coating , we covered the basics of electrophoretic painting, or e-coating. We discussed how it can be a highly effective solution for undercoating and other common painting or coating applications. This month, we’d like to take a closer look at the actual e-coating process and […]
Electrophoretic painting, more commonly known as e-coating, goes far beyond the standard painting process. Instead of brushing, rolling or spraying paint onto a surface, the e-coating procedure involves immersing the substrate into a liquid medium, typically a black epoxy paint solution. It is then electrified via an opposite polarity electrical charge and deposited onto the […]
