Microfinish utilizes many different finishes, making us a single source finishing supplier for multiple coatings to the same product. Customers in the automotive, agricultural and construction industries are using various finishes in conjunction with one another. E-coat and powder coat are good examples of combining different coating processes, to produce a superior end-product. We utilize zinc phosphate as a pretreatment to our e-coat finish. This yields a coating with superior adhesion, as well as, increases the corrosion resistance of the e-coated part. E-coat can get in deep recessed areas, that powder is not able to penetrate and give corrosion protection in areas that it is impossible to coat with powder coat alone.

While e-coat usually only comes in black and is not UV resistant and serves as an excellent undercoat for powder. Adding a powder top coat over e-coat allows our customers to pick from several cosmetically pleasing finishes and colors. At the same time the two-step coating process greatly enhancing the wearability and corrosion resistance of products that may be subject to the harshest elements and conditions. It is possible to achieve up to 2000 hours of salt spray protection with the use of a zinc phosphate pre-treatment, followed by e-coat and lastly a high-quality powder top coat. Far surpassing what either finish can achieve on its own, meeting the ever-increasing demands from our customers for a superior finish
