CFCM EcoShield 400

Mass production of metal parts often includes protective coatings application. But in the fast-paced manufacturing environment, there may not be enough time for the parts to cool before the coating dries. This issue is counterproductive when hot painted parts stick together, only to be pulled apart later and leave the coating damaged. EcoShield 386 FD is explicitly designed to eliminate this problem.

EcoShield 386 FD Water-Based Micro Corrosion Inhibiting Coating is a force-dry version of Cortec’s top water-based anti-corrosion coating, EcoShield VpCI-386. As such, EcoShield 386 FD offers corrosion protection at 1.5-3.0 mils (37.5-75 µm) DFT (dry film thickness). The advantage is that EcoShield 386 FD force-dries in only 5-10 minutes at 150 degrees Fahrenheit (54 degrees Celcius) and has a hot hardness, which keeps the hot coated parts from sticking together before they can cool down.

EcoShield 386 FD works well for fast-paced manufacturer spray and dip lines. Many pipes, hooks, castings, equipment components, and other metal parts need to be coated during production in preparation for their final installation. The problem is that the painted parts often pile up or are bundled together at the end of the line while the coating is hot and sticky. As a result, the parts may adhere to each other, damaging the coating when the components are later pulled apart, thus leaving a weak point for corrosion to get a foothold. EcoShield 386 FD reduces this risk.

In addition to its corrosion protection and force-dry capability, EcoShield 386 FD has several other positive coating features. It is an excellent alternative to solvent-based coatings, which often have high VOCs and are more challenging to clean up for starters. As a water-based coating with only 0.6
lbs/gal (72 g/L) of VOC, EcoShield 386 FD offers a better working environment with easier cleanup than many traditional protective coatings. Furthermore, EcoShield 386 FD has UV resistance, making it acceptable for components (e.g., heavy equipment parts or pipes) that will be stored or used outdoors. EcoShield 386 FD can be used clear or matched to most custom colours, providing an excellent solution for OEMs that make the coating inconspicuous or fit in with a specific colour scheme.

EcoShield 386 FD is a solution for the mass production of metal parts that need a protective coating but do not have enough time to dry before they cool down. By adding EcoShield 386 to the dip or spray line, manufacturers can keep production rolling at a fast pace without worrying about sticking parts and damaged coatings.
