HISTORY OF E-COAT
PPG filled first electrocoat tank with anodic electrocoat for automobile bodies
PPG issued patents for the ultrafiltration process
PPG filled the world's first cathodic electrocoat tank and designed/installed the first anolyte system to minimize waste
PPG successfully operated the first color controllable electrocoat system
PPG commercially electrocoated automotive bodies with a cathodic process
PPG commercialized the first one-coat cathodic acrylic electrocoat
PPG filled the first low-cure high gloss, exterior-durable cathodic acrylic electrocoat
PPG introduced UNI-PRIME® cathodic epoxy electrocoat, the first high film build electrocoat
PPG commercialized the first color controllable, one-coat epoxy finish
PPG commercialized 4th Generation cathodic epoxy with reduced film shrinkage
PPG introduced the first "ultra-white, non-yellowing cathodic epoxy for appliances
PPG introduced ELECTRO-IMAGE® electrodepositable photoresist
PPG commercialized 5th Generation cathodic epoxy with improved operating efficiency
PPG developed the first thermosetting electrocoat capable of curing to 180 °F (82 °C)
PPG commercialized the first "two-coat electrocoat process"
Low solvent and solvent free anodic acrylic was developed
PPG introduced 6th Generation ENVIROPRIME® lead-free cathodic epoxy
PPG commercialized high performance, low solvent, anodic acrylic
PPG high gloss, low cure, reduced VOC (less than 1.5) cathodic acrylic
PPG introduces HAPs-free, low cure, cathodic acrylic electrocoat
Cathodic acrylic clear-coat technology was commercialized and is used on a variety of substrates: gold, silver, brass, nickel, copper, zinc, aluminum, and steel
PPG introduced one component 7th Generation cationic epoxy electrocoat
Commercialized FrameCoat – high edge coverage, zero rust spot cathodic epoxy electrocoat developed especially for frames.
POWERCRON 8000, 8th generation single-component, high performance, HAPs-free, low VOC (<0.1), low-cure, and lead-free cathodic epoxy commercialized.
Commercialized POWERCRON 8000HE – high edge coverage version of POWERCRON 8000.
Commercialized POWERCRON 940 Platform – cationic acrylic electrocoat that can be optimized for any combination of UV durability and corrosion resistance properties.
Commercialized POWERSEAL® XL – cationic epoxy electrocoat optimized to meet the needs of the Fastener Marketplace.
Commercialized POWERxTM – PPG’s extensive, but easy to use program to test, treat and prevent bacteria and biofilm in electrocoat systems.
