Ever Wondered How The Electrophoretic Deposition Coating Process Works?

Through controllable electrical currents, electrolyzing coatings are able to precisely adhere a coating without deformation of the base material. Thin Dense Chrome coatings require low heat, short exposure, and small amounts of voltage to adhere to the base.

In order for the electrodeposited coating to adhere properly, the base material must be prepped and cleaned. With this coating, the base material plays a large factor in the success of the coating itself. Metal must be free of mill scale, heavy rust, paint or any other coating. The surface finish and Rockwell hardness are very important as well. Once the part is clean, it is ready to go through the process. The first step, and what could be considered as the most important step is the liquid honing procedure. This is done with a non-abrasive, baking soda like material that deep cleans the pores of the substrate. This is crucial for correct and absolute adhesion of the coating. Once the part is thoroughly honed it is now ready to be coated.

The Electrolyzing process is unique. Each part is racked creating an electrical current. The tool itself is the conductor, unlike other coating processes that conduct the entire tank. This allows for a more controllable state. The tool has a small negative voltage, between 5-14v DC current running to it. Anoding is placed in the tank and directional anoding is placed into cavities, complexities, or the inner diameter(s) of the part. This ensures a uniform deposition.

This precise technique creates a very controllable, uniform, and direct coating. With each part being individually handled and processed, we can ensure customer satisfaction and quality.
