The Electrocoat Association’s mission (see About Us tab) is all about education – creating learning and networking experiences that make a real difference in your work, your business and even to the technology itself through new, innovative techniques and products.

Currently we produce the ECOAT Conference, presented in even-numbered years;  an annual Electrocoating Seminar that travels to various regional locations with a strong manufacturing base;  a book, Electrocoat:  A Guidebook for Finishers; and, beginning in June, 2018, our new Webinar product. 

We also provide educational programming and speakers for co-sponsored events and are in the development stage of several online resource tools.

    In this webinar, we will embark on a discussion of what electrocoat is, its chemistry, how it's applied and components of an electrocoat bath. Different types of electrocoat and how they are used in the finishing industry will be discussed. We will highlight the advantages of electrocoat and discuss potential limitations. Finally, we will review items that impact applied cost and areas of focus for reducing costs and improving yields.
