Post Anyone familiar with E-Coating process.

I was wondering if anyone is familiar with or has used E-Coating for frame or suspension components, brackets, or any other type of auto part. Is it as durable as powder coating?

It seems to have some advantages, because the part is immersed in a tank, everything gets coated. Also the coverage is uniform across all surfaces, edges, holes, nooks and crannys, etc.

I read up on it some on the PPG website and there are different mixtures and apps depending on uses.

I am thinking of using it for seat frames and possibly re-doing some other parts that I painted with epoxy sealer primer and finished with urethane. I like the idea that it can coat surfaces you can't reach any other way.

Not familiar with E-coating but powder coating gets into a lot more tight spots that you might imagine since it is transported and attached by electro-static attraction. The dry plastic powder particles will travel way into tubes and crevices seeking bare metal to attach to.
