Autophoretic Coating Process is a waterborne process in which organic polymeric emulsion gets chemically deposited on the surface of a clean metal substrate. Basics of Autophoretics: Also known as autodeposition, A-coat or AP. It is a waterborne process which depends on chemical reactions between a ferrous. AUTODEPOSITION is a waterborne process which depends on chemical reactions to achieve 5 — [email protected] Chemical Coating. Stage No. 6 — Plant.

However it is not with typical bath chemistry and requires some additional considerations due to the build up of zinc in coating bath.

We looked at it for replacing some heavy zinc plating on couplings and had to dismiss it because the parts are handled very roughly and will chip and rust. The chemical reaction continues in the second layer, which results in film deposition and increased film thickness instead of solids loss to dragout.

The continuous formation of coating provides a film with a high degree of surface protection and corrosion resistance. No compounds or lubricants containing animal fat, paraffin, detergents or silicate ingredients.

If the condition of the received materials deviates from the above stated criteria, performance suffers significantly. The newly deposited organic film is adherent yet quite porous. Has anyone experience with this coating on galvanized zinc surface? If you try our search engine, I’m sure you can find some more. Not compatible with aluminum or galvanized material. This allows the chemical activators to diffuse rapidly in the film procesw etch the surface of the metal. Typically, film thickness is controlled autohoretic 0.

So, if you want to replace paint, it may be a great fit. This process has been in commercial use since Free from carbon enbrittlement.

Coating may be bent back on itself with no cracking or peeling. I have developed, researched, and produced autodeposition coatings, and lead this coatings to be applied in some automobile factories for many years.


The bath viscosity is close to that of water with little or no organic solvents in the coating bath. Autodeposition and hot dip coating are based on two different coating principles. Second line has just been commissioned for heavy vehicle brake plates. No tool markers, die, bluing or coil markings. This forum is for technical discussions, not promotion of one technology over another, so pprocess tell us what are the indications when electrocoating would be a better choice.

Autophoretic® Coating Process

It’s not possible to diagnose a finishing problem or the hazards of an operation via these pages. Presently, there are numerous installations in operation, both captive and job-shop, coating a variety of fabricated steel parts for the automotive and general industry markets.

But in case of electrocoating, the surface atom of the lattice may form bond with foreign atoms. This unusual feature strongly limits carryover of coating chemicals into the rinse tanks and greatly reduces the demand for waste treatment.

I know that these two processes are not the same. From beautiful Pine Beach New Jersey: A by-product of the heat-treating process No adhesive bonding materials such as tape, epoxy, etc. Withstands nicking and marring for better handling. The chemical reaction with the metal and the paint flows quickly as the film builds providing a self-limiting feature which results in a uniform thickness for the entire part. This diffusion control leads to a uniform coating thickness on complex shapes and in recessed areas.

Initially, the deposition process autophoretci quite rapid, but slows down as the film increases in thickness. So I am very glad to join this discussion.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that ALL parts will chip and rust! Coats evenly on all surfaces; where it flows it coats with no runs or sags.

Considerably lower temperatures are required to cure the autodeposited parts. If not, I’m not so sure that this work would have legitimate scholarly value: High corrosion resistance Generally hrs.


Pencil hardness of 6H to 7H. Metal surface must be low to medium carbon, cold or hot rolled steel. Sorry for the confusion, I have taken my forty lashes and will continue to hear about this from all those that know me.

On leaving the bath, the coating consists of two layers; one is a very cohesive reacted layer; while the other is composed of undeposited excess polymer and activator from the bath. Please contact your local PPG office for that paper. This ckating the coating dispersion to flow into and around the most complex shapes.

The metal surface of the part requires only cleaning and rinsing to prepare for the chemical reaction to take place; NO electrical charge or pre-coat is required. The mildly acid bath liberates a small amount of iron from the steel parts being immersed, causing an immediate surface reaction that releases iron auotphoretic.

Are there procedures in place coatinv preclude hydrogen damage in such parts? We have two lines running with ACC. In hot dip coating, where Zn getting may be diffused into the lattice structure of the Fe and get attached simple substitution.

Electrocoat or electrodeposition is of course a painting process which is offered by several coatings manufacturers including PPG.

Latex films form by coalescence. The elimination of these stages leads to considerable savings in required floor space, energy, and operating costs, as well aytophoretic the total elimination of toxic metals from the process. Thomas Moffitt Massachusett’s Office of Technical Assistance, Boston, MA Well, you have to remember that it is an organic coating, not a metallurgically bonded electroplating.
