ED coating (electrolytic dip coating) is an alternative to powder coating. This coating is employed when the required tolerances are very precise. ED coating is an acrylic/urethane polymer applied cathodically through electrophoresis. The surface becomes decorative with a relatively high shine. ED coating can be applied to steel, aluminium, die cast zinc, hot-galvanized steel, electrolytically zinc plated steel surfaces, etc. The method makes it possible to cover the metal with an evenly regulated and extremely thin surface layer (approximately 20-22 μm) with excellent adherence to the entire surface. The UV-resistant coating layer is void of pores and provides excellent corrosion protection as well as great wear resistance. ED coating has been classified by the Swedish Occupational Health and Safety Board as one of the most environmentally conscious coating procedures available. Industrilas includes ED coating as an alternative surface treatment for a number of items in the product inventory.
EPDM rubber (ethylene propylene diene M-class rubber) is an elastomer characterized by its wide range of applications. EPDM rubber is used at Industrilas for different types of strips, sealants and gaskets. It exhibits good resistance to water and alkalis, but not oil, gasoline and concentrated acids.
