Innovative industrial coating
E-coatings – professionally by FreiLacke
E-coating, also shortened to EC, refers to a unique type of coating which is applied to metal surfaces using a so-called electro-deposition process. During this process, the entire workpiece is immersed in a bath of electrically charged paint or resin particles to overcoat even hard-to-reach areas. The e-coat is attracted to the metal surface and forms a continuous layer of lacquer. The coating film ensures corrosion prevention and provides durability. E-coatings also function from aesthetic points of view.
FreiLacke develops the optimum customer solution for your application. They always are based on the high-performance and qualitatively pioneering FreiLacke e-coating systems.
FreiLacke EC systems
Whether anodic (anodic EC/+ pole) or cathodic (cathodic EC/- pole) deposition: FreiLacke also develops the optimum customer solution for your application. The basis is always the high-performance and qualitatively pioneering FreiLacke EC systems. Today, cathodic EC procedures are indispensable – in particular within the bodywork construction sector because they play a decisive role in corrosion protection and they help to extend the service lives of a vast array of vehicle components.

Improved environmental friendliness
FreiLacke e-coatings offer several advantages regarding the environment. First, they are produced using a water-based formula which significantly reduces VOC emissions (volatile organic compounds) and makes them more environmentally friendly than solvent-based coatings. Second, the e-coating process generates minimal waste and allows for high material utilization rates. This reduces the amount of material required and minimizes waste disposal costs. Third, FreiLacke e-coatings are free of heavy metals and other harmful substances, making them safer both for the workers and the environment. Finally, the use of enduring FreiLacke e-coatings can help extend the service life of metal parts and structures, reducing the need for frequent maintenance, repairs, and replacements, and thus reducing the environmental impact of these activities.
FreiLacke e-coatings are furthermore highly energy-efficient when it comes to the application process. The baking temperatures are up to 30 degrees lower and consequently ensure significant energy savings.
Perfect finish and highly effective protection
A good application example for electrocoating is the coating of control panels, computer housings and similar products. They protect valuable technology of computer systems and are important for the functioning of entire production plants. FreiLacke system coatings with e-coatings provide casings with a coating that is as high-tech as their contents.
FreiLacke’s multi-layer coating systems not only guarantee the best protection and the highest functionality, but also enable a smooth, fine, or coarse-textured finishes, depending on the specific requirements.
A core component: our service for your optimal solution
FreiLacke will provide you with optimal support for your application. As part of a personal consultation, we will be happy to help you select the suitable products.
