12 step electrophoretic deposition dip process

Ultimate rust protection

12 STEP PAINT PROCESS PROVIDES THE ULTIMATE RUST RESISTANCE & IS ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

Components are cleaned and pretreated with a phosphate conversion coating to prepare the product for electrocoating. When dipped into a paint bath, direct current is applied between the product and a counter electrode. The electric field attracts paint to the product and deposits it onto the product. Components are removed from the bath and rinsed to reclaim any unset paint solids. Our E-coat is environmentally-friendly, recyclable, and efficient. The paint is applied to a precise thickness over the entire product, so no paint is wasted. Next, products are transferred to the bake oven and completely cured at a temperature of 375°. Our products are durable and corrosion resistant thanks to the complete coverage of the E-coat. ”Green” initiatives are involved in all activities of the PALFINGER North America Group, including manufacturing, procurement, new product development.
