Ecoat throwpower is embraced in the coating of automotive vehicles and other complex geometric parts for its superior coverage of interior areas. New film build requirements and the need to maximize rack density for profitability have created challenges in maximizing paint usage efficiency beyond simply throwpower. The key is to run at or near the maximum film build capacity of the paint and system. Failing to do this can result in excess application of paint as much as 60%. End-users, paint suppliers, and process designers will need new strategies to maximize performance in today's conditions.
