Increase paint thickness in Cathodic Electrodeposition (CED) system?


Q. Thickness problem: Is there any relation between thickness of CED coating & and anolyte conductivity?

Avinash Vidhate

A. There is no relationship between CED film thickness and anolyte conductivity as long as your CED bath conductivity and anolyte conductivity is within the spec.

Anions (CH3COO-) are generated during CED process and it is moving to Anolyte system through semi permeable membrane at the anodes thereby the conductivity of anolyte increases and replenished with DI (maintained with in the spec between 400 - 400 microsiemens). If anolyte system is not removing the Anions then it will be remain in CED bath then the conductivity of bath slowly increases making a difference in film formation.

Please check paint supplier for Bath conductivity and Anolyte conductivity spec.

I am Working In CED Paintshop. We are applying 230 V and
pH - 5.82
Conductivity - 1452
NVM - 16.82

But DFT is coming in 5- 10 Micron Please Tell me How to increase DFT on CED components
