Part 3 of the Webinar: Future Substrates and Electrocoat.
In the final segment, our speaker embarks on a discussion of zirconium or thin film technology with aluminum substrates. He touches on the impact of lightweighting on electrocoat and the effects of using a lower bake temperature for curing.
Part 2 of the Webinar: Future Substrates and Electrocoat.
In this segment, the discussion is on the traditional zinc phosphate pretreatment process before looking at a bridge process to the Flex or 2-step process.
