Epoxy Coatings for Automotive Corrosion Protection 2000-01-0617
A new epoxy-based Autophoretic® coating has been developed and trialed at a full-scale jobber coating line. Autophoretic coatings are a proprietary series of autodepositing coatings specifically for ferrous metal substrates. An autodepositing coating is one which coats a substrate because of a chemical reaction between the paint and metal upon immersion in the aqueous paint tank. The new epoxy coating has a high level of corrosion protection, excellent appearance, and can be used as either a single coat or primer. Typical epoxy Autophoretic coating application conditions and performance data will be presented.
