E-coating is a process in which the car body moves through an e-coat bath, where paint particles are deposited on the steel panels with the aid of an electric current. This coating layer protects the car from corrosion. BASF developed the e-coat technology "CathoGuard 800”. According to the company, the product not only guarantees protection for the metal, but is also especially sustainable: the technology contains less than one percent solvents. The product complies with European environmental legislation. Additionally, it provides good e-coat coverage and corrosion protection for the hard-to-reach cavities in the vehicle.
