USA Coil & Air uses “FinKOTE”, an 8th generation E-Coat designed for extreme environments, with
high edge build for improved life, high flexibility for bending and improved handling, and corrosion
protection like no other coating can provide.
With the addition of advanced Top Coat options, FinKOTE can be modified to provide enhanced
UV resistance, higher abrasion resistance, lower coefficient of friction or to become NSF compliant.
Hydrophilic and hydrophobic properties can also be incorporated into the FinKOTE System.

Pre-Treatment

Parts are cleaned and pretreated with a conversion coating to prepare the part for electro-coating.

Electro-Coat

Direct current is applied between the parts and an electrode. Paint is attracted by the electric field to the part where it is deposited.

Recovery

Parts are rinsed to reclaim undeposited paint solids.

Cure

Paint is thermally cross-linked or cured.
