The method of the electrophoretic cathode metal coating (KTL or E-coat) is a finished technological process used for coating of metal surfaces with a thin, solid, one layer, and corrosion-resistant paint coating.
The prepared parts are coated in a paint bath (~ 20 m3), where paints using an electrical current are precipitated onto the cathode. The excess paint is washed off so that to get an even coating. The paint is dried at high temperature ~ 200 °C.
The E-Coat (KTL) ensures the even coating and of the desired thickness not only for geometrically complicated structures, but also for the inner cavities of the parts. The possible coating thickness of parts is from 15 to 35 microns.
The E-Coat (KTL) can be used as a basic coating or an epoxy basis for liquid or powder coatings.
The E-Coat (KTL) is a standard method of coating used in the automobile industry for more than 25 years and which is the best price-quality ratio.
The E-Coat (KTL) technology is environmentally friendly since the amount of volatile organic compounds is <1%.
E-coat (KTL) coating is corrosion resistant according to VW TL260 + TL227 , BMW GS 90011 LASW3, DBL 7391.50 and many other OEM coating requirements.
