Autophoretic Coating Process is a waterborne process in which organic polymeric emulsion gets chemically deposited on the surface of a clean metal substrate. Basics of Autophoretics: Also known as autodeposition, A-coat or AP. It is a waterborne process which depends on chemical reactions between a ferrous. AUTODEPOSITION is a waterborne process which depends on chemical reactions to achieve 5 — [email protected] Chemical Coating. Stage No. 6 — Plant.

Second line has just been commissioned for heavy vehicle brake plates. If you try our search engine, I’m sure you can find some more.

However it is not with typical bath chemistry and requires some additional considerations due to the build up of zinc in coating bath.

I just read what I wrote above and I am not sure why Proces said what I did. This allows the chemical activators to diffuse rapidly in the film and etch the surface of the metal. On leaving the bath, the coating consists of two layers; one is a very cohesive reacted layer; while the other is composed of undeposited excess polymer and activator from rpocess bath.

I have developed, researched, and produced autodeposition coatings, and lead this coatings to be applied in some automobile factories for many years. The metal surface of the part requires only cleaning and rinsing to prepare for the chemical reaction to take place; NO electrical charge or pre-coat is auhophoretic.

The mildly acid bath liberates a small amount of iron from the steel parts being immersed, causing an immediate surface reaction that releases iron autoporetic. Depends on solvent, time, and temperature. Not procesx with aluminum or galvanized material. In both cases metallic bond is getting formed, but the bonding nature may not be same. Thomas Moffitt Massachusett’s Office of Technical Assistance, Boston, MA Well, you have to remember that it is an organic coating, not a metallurgically bonded electroplating.


Presently, there are numerous installations in operation, both captive and job-shop, coating a variety of fabricated steel parts for the automotive and general industry markets. This process has been in commercial use since These criteria have been established to ensure the maximum performance on each part.

Autophoretic® Coating Process

Free from autlphoretic enbrittlement. I know that these two processes are not the same. Metal surface must be low to medium carbon, cold or procesx rolled steel.

Sorry for the confusion, I have taken my forty lashes and will continue to hear about this from all those that know me. But in case of electrocoating, the surface atom of the lattice may form bond with foreign atoms. It’s one more tool in the arsenal, and will fill the needs some of the time; but you have to look at the actual parts and the actual service conditions.

Electrocoat or electrodeposition is of course a painting process which coatjng offered by several coatings manufacturers including PPG. Initially, the deposition process is quite rapid, but slows down as the film increases in thickness. It’s not possible to diagnose a finishing problem or the hazards of an operation via these pages. The line would most likely only be able to process zinc substrates and not plain steel at the same time.


Autophpretic course, that doesn’t mean that ALL parts will chip and rust!

If the condition of the received materials deviates from the above stated criteria, performance suffers significantly. Since its inception, this unique process has been employed to coat billions of square feet of xoating.

These ions interact with the latex in solution causing coating deposition on the surface of the steel parts. Please contact your atophoretic PPG office for that paper. We looked at it for replacing some heavy zinc plating on couplings and had to dismiss it because the parts are handled very roughly and will chip and rust.

The newly deposited organic film is adherent yet quite porous. The elimination of these stages leads to considerable savings in required floor space, energy, and operating costs, as well as the total elimination of toxic metals from the process.

Unlike coating processes that require a charge to autophoeetic the coating i. This allows the coating dispersion to flow into and around the most complex shapes.

Autophoretic Coating Process

So, if you want to replace paint, it may be a great fit. Considerably lower temperatures are required to cure the autodeposited parts. Latex films form by coalescence. In hot dip coating, where Zn getting may be diffused into the lattice structure of prodess Fe and get attached simple substitution. No tool markers, die, bluing or coil markings. Typically, film thickness is controlled from 0.
