Electrophoretic lacquering details


I am naive in the lacquering technique field and I want to know about electro-phoretic lacquering.....how is it done? what are the ingredients used? after lacquering whats the process for drying? I wanna experiment on this technique for finishing of brass products which are fancy ones and table top items.....

Electrophoretic lacquering is carried out over many different components. It is not possible to become an established user overnight. However it is possible to understand the process by taking training or advice from established supply houses.

I hope Asif does not break my neck on his next visit to Chandigarh but I differ from what he says. Electrophoretic process is a very simple process and you can run it very well just by taking care of a few parameters. The chemical house which supplies the lacquer will assist you at all times. A well designed and well manufactured equipment takes care of most of the coating problems. You do not need any chemical analysis at your end to run this system.

If you need more help you can get in touch.

It is quite possible you have found an adequate solution to your need by now. The advice by Gurvin falls in line with what was suggested by me that you can have a supplier show you what it takes to get a good electrophoretic lacquer finish. Color, Clear or just dull.

Both Chemistry and Equipment are readily available within India and you need to decide upon a viable supplier. A certain well known plating shop called Saify Ind [a finishing.com supporting advertiser] run by Mr Khozem Vahaanwala in B'lore can steer you in the right direction.

You may find my technical paper, A New Cathodic Electrophoretic Clear Lacquer, published in Transactions of the Institute of Metal Finishing, 1983, Vol. 61 interesting. Although technology has moved on but it will get you started. Incidentally please note that anode cells are not used any more, the stainless steel anodes are simply hung uncaged in the working solution.
