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.

    The electrocoat process consists of several systems working together. This makes troubleshooting a defect very difficult. This talk explains how the process of troubleshooting defects can be focused into three categories: process, chemistry and unusual conditions. A troubleshooting reference guide will also be provided as we discuss the disciplined approach of isolating components of your system to determine root cause and the appropriate countermeasure to take to correct a problem. Several useful analytical and laboratory tools will also be described.
