New Epoxy-Based Autodepositing Coating System 2002-01-0207
A new series of epoxy-based Autophoretic® coatings have been developed and commercialized at several manufacturing facilities for use as a protective paint film. Autophoretic® coatings are a proprietary series of autodepositing coatings specifically designed for painting ferrous metal substrates. Autodeposition is an immersion process that coats a substrate because of a chemical reaction between aqueous paint dispersion and the base metal. The new epoxy-based Autophoretic® coatings provide a high level of corrosion protection, excellent appearance, and very low VOC. These coatings have automotive approvals and can be used as a sole coat or primer. Typical epoxy-based Autophoretic® coating application conditions and performance data will be presented.
