Electrophoretic Deposition (EPD)
This process is industrially used for applying coatings to metal fabricated products. It has been widely used to coat automobile bodies and parts, tractors and heavy equipment, electrical switch gear, appliances, metal furniture, beverage containers, fasteners, and many other industrial products.
EPD processed have a number of advantages which have made such methods widely used
- The process applies coatings which generally have a very uniform coating thickness without porosity.
- Complex fabricated objects can easily be coated, both inside cavities as well as on the outside surfaces.
- Applicability to wide range of materials (metals, ceramics, polymers )
