The Concept of Development of the Ford Electrocoating System 650270
The structural designer of automotive components often is faced with a problem of paint application for which paint technology has not provided solutions. Hence he must solve his problem by changes in his design rather than by using an applicable painting system. The electrocoating system described in this paper clearly allows the designer greater latitude because it provides greater protection for inaccessible or severely exposed components. Moreover, it provides more uniform coatings than can be obtained by older methods.
